Summary:Act 4 starts of with the witches in some sort of lair with a cauldron in front of them. They are casting some sort of spell and using various disgusting ingredients to do so such as newt eyes and lizard legs. After a while Macbeth enters the lair and demands some more information about his future. In response to Macbeth, the witches cauldron summons several ghosts each of which have a different message to Macbeth. The first ghost is of a floating armoured head who tells Macbeth ” Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! Beware Macduff. Beware the thane of Fife.” eluding that Macduff is not to be trusted and will want to harm Macbeth. The second ghost is of a bloody child who tells Macbeth “for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth.”. This means that since everyone is the offspring of a woman no one can harm or kill Macbeth. The last ghost is of another child but this time he’s wearing a crown and holding a tree branch he tells Macbeth “Macbeth shall never vanquished be until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill Shall come against him”. Basically making him even more confident that he cannot be defeated by anyone or anything as how can a Birnam Wood tree walk and move. Then eight ghostly kings appear out in a line the last one holding a mirror and behind him a ghost of Banquo, This scares Macbeth as he remembers the last prophecy from his prior prophecies. “Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none” eluding to Banquo’s bloodline being kings but not one himself. Macbeth asks the witches what these last ghosts means but before he can get an answer the Witches vanish into the night. After Lennox tells Macbeth that Macduff has fled to England, with this information and his new prophecies Macbeth decided to invade Macduff’s castle and kill Macduff’s family. The next scene takes place at Macduff’s castle in Fife. It shows Macduff’s wife  Lady Macduff with  one of Macduff’s sons. Young Macduff asks where Macduff has gone Lady Macduff says that he has died,  Young Macduff questions this as if he did died Lady Macduff would be crying. Lady Macduff says she isnt crying as Macduff is a traitor and she feels betrayed
