The soldiers with their branches making the woods appear to be moving from a distance. Macbeth lost confidence as a result of this delusion, which was similar to the witches’ prophecy.

Answer : As Macbeth prepares to murder Duncan, he undergoes some of the most wretched moments of his life. He experiences hallucinations and witnesses an apparition of a bloody dagger suspended in the air. When he attempts to grasp it, the dagger dissolves into thin air. Subsequently, while carrying out the deed, one of the guards awakens and cries out “murder,” causing both guards to rouse. They pray together, uttering “amen.” However, Macbeth finds himself unable to vocalize the word “amen.” He hears someone, possibly due to his disturbed state, proclaiming that Macbeth has murdered sleep, and consequently, he shall never rest peacefully again. Struggling with these haunting visions, Macbeth returns to his wife.
