Macbeth

Lady Macbeth says to Macbeth, "I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that milk me. I would,while it was smiling on my face, have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums, and dashed the brains out, had i sworn as you have done to this" (I.vii.418).Lady is upset because Macbeth had second thoughts about killing Duncan. Macbeth says, "False face must hide what the false heart doth know" (I.vii.418).. Macbeth is saying that he and Lady must act like they know nothing of Duncan's death, even though they know everything. Lady Macbeth is a good reason why Macbeth killed Duncan. If she didn't pressure him into doing it, he may have ot killed Duncan. This whole plot goes back to the prophecies told by the Three Witch Sisters.

This Crowned Skull represents the death of King Duncan. Macbeth said, "I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear a noise?"(II.ii.420) He had to kill the King because Lady Macbeth backed out because Duncan looked like her father while he slept.

This Dagger represents one of the two that Macbeth took from the drunken guards and killed King Duncan with. Lady Macbeth says to Macbeth, "Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead are but as pictures. 'tis the eye of childhood that fears a pinted Devil"(II.ii.421). Macbeth forgot to put the Daggers back in the guards possession.

Ambition is what makes this play one of Shakespeare's best. Macbeth's ambition the become King over powered his common sense. Macbeth says, "She should have died hereafter; There would have been a time for such a word. Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing" (V.v.442).

This picture shows the Macbeths. Macbeth says in a letter to Lady Macbeth, "This have I thought good to deliver thee, my dearest partner of greatness, that thou mightst not lose the dues of rejoicing, by being ignorant of what greatness is promised thee"(I.iv.416).This showing the great relationship these two share.

This Tragedy is taken place in Scotland. The Sergeant in Act I, Scene II says "Mark, King of Scotland, mark;" (I.ii.411). This is stating that The King of Scotland shall be happy with the outcome of the battle.

This Song is an Ancient Scottish folk song. Since the setting of this play takes place in old time Scotland, I think this song is perfect. When i think of the setting of this play, it reminds me of the movie, Lord of the Rings. I also think this song makes a connection to the same movie. This audio clip shows; Castles, Cliffs and vast land. This makes me feel like I am in Old World Europe.

In this Video, Lady Macbeth's maid, or Gentle woman, has brought a doctor into the castle, worried about Lady Macbeth's health. She has been sleep-walking, saying odd things. Since the doctor has been watching her with the maid, she hasn't been sleep-walking. The Doctor says, " I have two nights watched with you, but can perceive no truth in your report. When was it she last walked?" (V.i.438).The doctor then said that Lady Macbeth needs the Divine and that he could do nothing.

I compare Macbeth to Adolf Hitler. Both of these tyrants' ambition nearly led them to their ultimate goal. Hitler killed nearly 1/3 of the World's Jewish population. He also killed many Gypsies and people who followed other relgions. He believed that the master race were the Aryan's (Blonde hair; blue eyes). Macbeth's ambition to become king was great. He killed his current king while the king was sleeping in Macbeth's castle. Macbeth's ambition was to stay king was equal, if not, greater than before. He killed his bestfriend, Banquo, for knowing too much about Macbeth. Macbeth even wiped out Macduff's whole castle population, including his wife,for going to England. But in the end, both of these rulers were stopped short of their goals.
