The First Riddle:

        The first riddle warns Macbeth about how he needs to beware Macduff, the Thane of Fife. In this image I imagined that Macbeth, upon hearing the riddle, would immediately think that he needs to destroy Macduff's family and Macduff himself. This picture shows Macbeth envisioning Macduff's home in Fife and is the moment when he gets the idea that he needs to kill Macduff's family to scare him. Macduff is a threat to Macbeth because Macduff is planning to overthrow Macbeth, with the help of Malcolm, the rightful heir to the throne. The riddle was difficult but after reading it over a couple times, I was able to understand what it is explaining. I don't think that Macbeth's plan to destroy Mcduff's family is a good one. It would only make Mcduff want to take him down even more than he already does.
