In Macbeth , the Three Witches can be looked at as symbols for the Fates that are introduced in Greek mythology. The Three Witches prophesize the future of Macbeth and Banquo, Macbeth falls easily for their word and is not reluctant to become what the Three Witches prophesized. The Three Witches end up controlling Macbeth’s life because all the actions that he puts to play are because he wants the Three Witches word to become true. On the other hand, when the Three Witches prophesize something that displeases Macbeth, he tries very hard to prevent the prophesized words to come true, and due to his actions Macbeth ends up dieing because the Three Witches in reality control his future. This is very similar to the Fates that appear in many Greek myths. The Fates appear alongside Zeus when Zeus and the Olympian Gods take on Chronis and the titants. The Ftes attack some giants and cut their life. The Fates are deities who control the lifespan of a certain person and control they time they die. Similar how the Three witches controlled
