Night and Macbeth have many striking parrells

            Do you remember when you used to watch cartoons and the bad guy always lost? In litature it often seems like evil villains will conquer but in the end they almost never do. "Night" by Elie Wiesel and "Macbeth "" by William Shakespeare demonstrate this quote perfectly by using foreshadowing .
             The play "" Macbeth"" by William Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show, how evil villains can be temporairilly successful but will never triumph in the end. Shakespeare foreshadows Macbeth's downfall with the three apparitions given to him by the weird sisters. The second apparition was a bloody child. This represents that no man born from a women could hurt Macbeth. This gives Macbeth a false sense of security because he thinks no man can hurt him because all men are born from women. However, Macbeth's murderer, Macduff was not born from a women he was born by cesarean section. Since it seemed impossible for a man not to be born from a women, Macbeth succeeded temporarily, but in the end goodness prevailed because Macbeth was murdered. The third apparition is a crowned child with a tree in his hand. This means that Macbeth will be king until the forest moves up the hill. Macbeth thought that a forest could never move up a hill, however an army of 10,000 men descended up the hill disguised as a forest to murder Macbeth. The third apparition also symbolized seven lines of Banquo's heirs. After receiving this information, Macbeth immediately sent out three murderers to kill Banquo and his son. The murderers succeeded in killing Banquo. His son Fleiance escaped, proving the witch's apparitions correct. This proves that evil never conquers because Macbeth wanted his family to rule. Even though Macbeth was king for a short time, eventually he lost his wife and his life.
             Another book that proves that evil can be temporarily successful but will never triumph in the end is "Night". In "Night" Hitler's goal was to exterminate every single Jew on the earth.
