Subject:    "Done" in Macbeth

Dear Colleagues,

I've been trying without success lately to track down a critical 
discussion I recall but cannot place of nuances among the three 
repetitions of "done" in the famous lines of Macbeth's that "If it were 
done when 'tis done then 'twere well/ It were done quickly." This may be 
so familiar as not to be localizable, or I may simply not have found the 
right commentary yet. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

Best wishes,
Tom
