The meaning of foul here is bad or evil, and fair means good. To hover means to fly. So a literal translation of this statement could be ‘Good is evil and evil is good/Fly through the fog and dirty air.’ The witches’ statement foreshadows what is to come in the play. People who are seen as good will be turned to evil (like Macbeth) and situations that are seen as good will turn out badly (like the witches’ prophecies for Macbeth). This imagery idea provides insight on the theme of disorder because Macbeth was not always enticed by such evil ideals, not until the witches provided the prophecy that he would become king which in turn planted the idea of disrupting the natural order by killing King Duncan. After hearing the witches’ prophecy Lady Macbeth becomes riddled with the idea of power and comes up with the plan to kill Duncan. : “Look like th’ innocent / flower; / But be the serpent under’t.” ( I, vi, 76-78). This is stated just before King Duncan’s arrival at their castle. Lady Macbeth urges Macbeth to look fair in order to hide his foul natural intentions as he is planning on soon disrupting the natural order by killing Duncan. After Macbeth becomes king he starts to suffer from sleeplessness and bad dreams due to his guilt and fear from disrupting the natural order. These stresses are shown in his appearance as his wife pleads him to get himself together and stop acting so obviously suspicous. : “Come on, gentle my lord, / Sleek o’er your rugged looks. / Be bright and jovial among your guests tonight.” (III, ii, 30-33). Despite her pleads Macbeth denies the necessity of putting a fair face on his foul thoughts because he has already arranged for the murder of Banquo, meaning he no longer must fear anyone taking his crown. This imagery can be depicted as an effect due to the disorder as Macbeth is riddled with not only guilt but also fear provided by the killing of Duncan. Not to long after Duncan’s sons flea Macduff finds Malcolm and asks for his support in a war against Macbeth, but Malcolm is very cautious, because for all Malcolm knows, Macduff could be prepared to double cross him. But, after Malcolm expresses his suspicions he states :
