Why do you think Macbeth is startled by the witches prediction's in act 1 of Macbeth by Shakespeare
Witches tell Macbeth he will be king Macbeth kills king Kings son mades sneak attack Macbeth dies
Macbeth has three witches (four if you count the character Hecate who was probably not written into the play by Shakespeare).
In the play "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare, the witches foretell the events that will take place. Their predictions elicit ambition and fear and help set in motion the very things they prophesize. The supernatural and underhanded nature of the witches also contributes to the play's theme and tone.
Shakespeare shows the three witches in the first scene of Macbeth to demonstrate that the play is a tragedy. Since witches are commonly associated with evil, this creates a dark and dangerous atmosphere and foreshadows death. The witches are also extremely important to the play because it is their prophecies that drive Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to commit terrible acts.
I don't remember the play really giving a description of the witches. It is not what they look like that is important but what they tell Macbeth of his future.
Hecate is the leader of the witches in the play "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare (Baptized April 26, 1564 - April 23, 1616).Specifically, Hecate does not appear until Act 3 Scene 5. She meets with the three witches who appear in the play's opening scene. Hecate chides them for making and carrying out plans regarding Macbeth without consulting her first.

Macbeth, also known as The Scottish Play.
They were in his source material, Holinshed's History of Britain.
No names are given to the witches other than to their leader, Hecate, in the play "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare (Baptized April 26, 1564 - April 23, 1616).Specifically, three witches are in the play's opening act and interact with Macbeth (d. August 15, 1057) until after the murder of Banquo in Act 3. Throughout, they remain unnamed. Their leader appears in Act 3, just before the witches' final meeting with Macbeth. She is identified as Hecate at that point.
Shakespeare wrote sonnets into Romeo and Juliet but not Macbeth. Macbeth is simply blank verse with the exception of the comic prose and the witches' trochees.
For your first Shakespeare play try Macbeth. It has witches, murders and battles and its the shortest.
the witches (:
Shakespeare is supposed to have used the spells of real witches in his text, angering the witches and causing them to curse the play.
In Macbeth the witches were planning on meeting with Macbeth at the beginning.

Macbeth, colloquially called the Scottish Play.
because the king of the time was really intrested in the superstisions of witchs
It is an introduction to a character in Macbeth. The three witches.
Although Macbeth did feature witches around a cauldron, that image was not original to Shakespeare. There is an image of witches brewing a potion in a cauldron from the book De Lamiis et Phitonicis Mulieribus, published in 1493 (over 100 years before Shakespeare wrote Macbeth).
Macbeth is a play written in about 1606 by William Shakespeare. It is the story of Macbeth, a Scottish nobleman who becomes king after the previous king dies. The previous king, Duncan, dies as a result of Macbeth murdering him in his bed as Duncan was attending a party at Macbeth's house. Macbeth is encouraged to do this by his wife and by some cryptic statements made by three witches.
