Political disruption could lead to unnatural births, and these could facilitate conjuring, as in Macbeth. Explaining supernatural events, while not reducing their threat, could at least render the supernatural legible

Shakespeare persistently engenders epiphany out of simplest clay. He gives poignant self-revelations not only to the vulgar and literal-minded but also to the woefully hard
