Macbeth is full of hallucinations and the supernatural. Some people believe that the bloody daggers, the ghost of Banquo and the witches were all hallucinations of Macbeth. Some disagree and say the ghost of Banquo really did appear to Macbeth. Others argue that the witches were not just a figment of Macbeth’s imagination. What do you think? Were the witches and ghosts real or not? Use evidence from the text and examples from other novels/movies to support your thesis.
