What Was Shakesphere's Purpose for Having Witches In Macbeth?

What Was Shakesphere's Purpose for Having Witches In Macbeth? | World Literature | Scoop.it

In Macbeth Shakespeare is using the witches to represent the controversy over weither of human's lives are based off of their choices or if they are already planned and will happen no matter what. The witches made predictions about Macbeth when these predictions were achieved Macbeth question what was going to happen in the future and if the universe knew that it would happen. The witches show that some characters represent both sides of this idea, and shakespeare wanted his audience to become aware and discuss which charcters had control and whose lives were pre-destained.
