Fair is foul and foul is fair

When shall we three meet again, double double toil and trouble, Fair is foul and foul is fair, I dare do all that may become a man


Fair is foul and foul is fair
Hover through the fog and filthy air.

The famous Shakespeare Quote “Fair is foul and foul is fair” is used by three witches in Macbeth ACT 1, Scene 1. The three witches play an important role in the play. Their appearance, speeches, activities are all weird. “Fair is foul and foul is fair” are very symbolic lines uttered by witches before they left. While the Quote can have many different meanings. We can relate it to the major characters of the play like Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The central character of the play, Macbeth, can do anything and everything to achieve his ambition. He murders King Duncan, Banquo and the entire family of Macduff, just to become King and hold his position. What is fair for Macbeth is foul for everyone. The ultimate end of Macbeth (brave but cruel tyrant) by Macduff can appear an act of cruelty but it is fair for everyone.
