"Macbeth"By William Shakespeare

A Summary~Act 1; Scene 7~Macbeth is nervous about having to kill Duncan. He's really contemplating about the situation he's in. Lady Macbeth tries to influence Macbeth in the idea of murdering the king. She says she's more of a man than he is because she could kill and feel numb. ' I dare do all that may become a man' spoke Lady Macbeth. Macbeth is scared to know what would happen if they failed. Lady macbeth comes up with a plan, she is most confident they won't 'But screw your courage to the sticking-place,/ And we'll not fail.' Her plan is to get the guards drunk and Duncan alone in his chamber to commit this crime.

Modern Day ConnectionEveryone is not perfect in the world and sometimes we forget our morals. In Macbeth king Duncan gets killed by Macbeth. Macbeth went against his morals to commit a crime and now he pays for it through guilt and sorrow. This happens a lot in the real world and most of the time when we're being deceitful with ourselfs or others it results in a negitive outcome. Macbeth's ambition to become king was so great that he lost his morals in the thrill of it. When the deed was done he looked back in remorse. When we do something were not proud of, just like Macbeth did, we always have things remainding us about the situation. Sometimes we also feel haunted by the deeds we've done, just like Macbeth was haunted by Banquo's ghost. The things we do sometimes cannot be fixed but, we can always be honest and open about the position we are in or facing.

"Glais thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt beWhat thou are promised. Yet do I fear thy nature;It is too full of the milk of human kindnessTo catch the hearest way. Thou wouldst be great;Art not without ambition but withoutThe illness should attend it" Lady Macbeth. (I.V.11)Lady Macbeth just recieved this letter from her husband, Macbeth, explaining hiow they will rule the thrown. She immediately thinks of murder. Lady Macbeth is strong willed so, that fact that murder is involved doesn't faze her.

"If good, why do I yeild to the suggestionWhose horrid image doth unfix my hairAnd make my seated heart knock at my ribs,Against the use of nature? Present fearsAre less than horrible imaginings. My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical,Shakes so my single state of man that function Is smoothered in surmise, and is nothing is But what is not" Spoken from Macbeth. (I.III.9)Macbeth knows he has to kill King Duncan and commit this horrible crime. He's thrilled to be King and loves the idea of it but, he doesn't like the way it has to be done.

" All double, double toil and trouble;/ Fire burn and cauldron bubble" said by the witches (IV.I.1)Most of the supernatural events happening in the woods, or around the people have to do with the witches in the creepy woods. Its very weird that the witches can predict Macbeth's fate





"Thou hast it now; king, Cawdor, Glamis, all/As the weird women promised, and, I fear/ Thou playedst most foully for't" Announced Banquo. (III.I.1)Banquo is a smart man. After hearing about Duncan's death and knowing the witches prophecies, he thinks Macbeth has something to do with the murder of there King.

" Hang out banners on the outward wall;The cry is still "they come" Our castle's strengthWill laugh a siege to scorn. Here let them lieTill famine and the agrue eath them up. Were they not forced with those that should be oursWe might have met them dareful, beard to beardAnd beat them backward home" announced King Macbeth. (V.III.1)There using the banners as signs of there side. everones preparing for battle.
