The first meeting between Macbeth and witches set all the events in motion that lead to Macbeth final destruction.”“Hail to thee, thane of Glamis! -All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane Cawdor!-All hail, Macbeth! that shalt be king hereafter“ which is the prophecy from the witches saying he will become king. This is the seedling of Macbeth’s ambition that leads to destruction as at first Macbeth thinks its a silly impractical idea but as the play proceeds the idea grows within him and with the dark destructive influence of Lady Macbeth that manipulates his ambition to something much darker than its original form. This then leads him to do his first unspeakable act of killing king Duncan which leads him to his despair both in his future action and his mental state and becomes his ultimate down fall.
