Shakespeare: The Three Witches

In the first scene of the play, the Three Witches recite the phrase “Fair is foul, and foul is fair. / Hover through the fog and filthy air” (Shakespeare, 1.1. 12-13). The denotative meaning of the phrase is that whatever appears to be appealing is impure and whatever appears to be impure is actually appealing.
