Subject: 16.0728 Macbeth Questions
Comment:        Re: SHK 16.0728 Macbeth Questions

"Swelling" in MACBETH also carries the key sense of pregnancy and
fertile/mortal growth. Time itself is seeded by the power-lusts of the
characters--events are "new hatched to th'woeful time." Duncan has
planted a poisonous Macbeth and will reap the harvest. He has given
birth to the venomous serpent who will grow to sting him.
