"We Three": The Mythology of Shakespeare's Weird Sisters

Laura Shamas
PHD Mythological Studies 2003

ISBN: 9780820479330

Pacifica Bookstore price: 65.95

FEATURED EXCERPTS

From page 94:
Macbeth is replete with the threesomes and references to the number three. The Weird Sisters are the most significant symbols and characters in the play related to threes. In mythology and folklore, we see a continued fascination with trinitarian constructions; theology, too, offers further insights about the importance of this number.

From page 95:
As Jung writes of liturgical practices: "Since olden times, formulae for benediction, all solemn agreements, occasions, attributes, etc. have had a magical, threefold character." Thus, as the ancient number related to religious function and imagery, "three" signifies "spiritual value" to the human psyche.
