The song "Pompeii" by Bastille represents Macbeth's character. Just like in the book, "[He was] caught up and lost in all of [his] vices...In [his] pose as the dust settled around [him]" (Bastille, 1:12). This is saying that his wicked behavior got the best of him and he couldn't control it. All of his bad deeds left him with "...Curses not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath, Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not" (Act V, Scene 3, Lines 31-32). So, after he finally realized where the path he chose had led him, it was too late and everything was catching up with him.
Stormy Sky #157 by John O'Grady represents the Witches' cause of the downfall. This is because in every scene the witches are in, there is some type of stormy weather. For instance, the first time the witches are introduced, they discuss "When shall [them] three meet again In thunder, lightning, or in rain?" (Act I, Scene 1, Lines 1-2). All three of these types of weather have to do with storms. So, this painting symbolizes the Witches because the storm shows the darkness that the they brought to Macbeth.
