Macbeth Glossary |
Third Witch Anon. (1.1.12)
Note that in some editions of the play all three witches recite the line Paddock calls: - anon., as we find in the First Folio version. However, this appears to be a Folio misprint, and editor Eugene M. Waith of the Yale Shakespeare rightly breaks up the line and ascribes it to the Second and Third Witches:
Second Witch. Paddock calls.
Third Witch. Anon!
ALL. Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
