Macbeth

Act 2 Scene 4. This scene takes place outside of Macbeth’s castle after Duncan was murdered. Ross, the Old Man and Macduff discuss what just happened. The old man shares that Duncan’s horses went wild the night before. Ross Describes the day as it being light outside but the skies are very dark. "A falcon towering in her pride of place, was killed by a mousing owl hawked at the killed". The entire day was unnatural to them, just like the murder of Duncan seemed to be strangely unnatural. After their suspicions were validated the three men talk about how "Those that Macbeth hath slain" were said to murder Duncan they think that the servants were paid by someone to do so. Malcom and Donalbain ran away, making them suspicious. The scene ends by the Old Man saying to turn that bad into good and your enemies into friends.

Lennox. "Here my good Lord. What is't that moves your highness?" Macbeth "Which of you have done this?" (iii.iv. 1333-1334)

O, full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife! (111.11.1210)

Yet do I fear thy nature; It is too full o' th' milk of human kindnessTo catch the nearest way: thou wouldst be great, Art not without ambition, but without The illness should attend it . What thou wouldst highly. (i.v.360-364)

This castle hath a pleasant seat. The air nimbly and sweetly recommends itself unto our gentle senses. (i.vi.433-435)

It will have blood, they say. Blood will have blood. Stones have been known to move, and trees to speak. (iii.iv.1425-1426)

In this act three scene 4, Macbeth is looking for a seat at the hall table. Lennox motions Macbeth to his usual seat. When Macbeth says it’s taken, Lennox asks by who. This scene is very important because Macbeth is seeing the ghost of Banquo in his usual seat, therefore he cannot sit. This is also contributes to the important theme of Macbeth’s fears haunting him when in reality they aren’t there.

In this quote from Act 1 Scene 5, Lady Macbeth begins with saying Macbeth is already the Thane of Glamis and Cawdor. Soon he will be king. The problem with his being king is what it will take to receive the crown. She continues saying that Macbeth might not have what it takes to seize the crown, saying he wants to be powerful but doesn’t have the mean streak to do so. The only way to get the crown is to kill the people in the way of it, leading to the theme of Macbeth killing to get what he wants.

This picture and quote reveals the setting for a large majority of the play. Macbeth’s castle is where a large gathering takes place at the beginning. When Duncan arrives he describes the castle as a pleasant place that appeals to is ‘refines senses’ This is very contradicting considering the fact that he will be murdered in that castle tonight. In conclusion this nice castle is a scene for murder.

This quote is revealing that there is supposedly an old saying that the dead will have their revenge. That the stones are known to move as they try to bring guilty men to justice. This quote is very important to Macbeth’s role in the play. He becomes guilty of many things and in many ways he is haunted by the dead, eventually known as a traitor. The end result of Macbeth being known as a traitor shows us readers that that line in the play was relevant to the resolution all along.

Scorpions represent the twisted thoughts in Macbeths mind in this scene. He is having trouble thinking straight knowing they are about to kill Banquo soon. His thoughts are mixed with emotions and he is somewhat losing it.

Macbeth Act 1 Scene 3

The song Demons by Imagine Dragons relates to Macbeth in multiple ways. This song talks about inner demons inside him. He wants to hide the truth of his killing but the beast inside is driving him to kill more. The songs says, “No matter what breed we still are made of greed”. That line is very fitting considering he is full of greed for the crown. The demons live inside of Macbeth. The song says, “So they dug your grave and the masquerade will come calling out at the mess you’ve made.” Relating to the facts that Duncan and Banquo even though they are dead, he is being haunted by the mess that he made by killing them. I chose this song because it holds many key points about the inner demons and the reason for violence in comparison to Macbeth.

In this scene the three witches are making a joke about what they have been up to. One witch tells a story about a sailor’s wife that was eating chestnuts from her lap and wouldn’t give her any. The women’s husband was sailing to Aleppo and the witch said she would sail out there and cast a spell making him not able to sleep a wink ever again. The first witch begins to talk about a thumb she has from a piolet who drowned while trying to return home. When they hear drums, they know Macbeth is coming! Banquo and Macbeth see these hideous witches with beards. The third witch calls him the future king and Macbeth thinks that she is delusional. Banquo chimes in and starts to ask them about his future, seeming as Macbeth has heard nothing but good news. They tell Banquo that his descendants will be kings. Macbeth is confused by his prophecy and asks how it is possible, but the witches vanish. Ross and Angus enter and congratulate Macbeth on his success against the rebels and the Army of Norway. Angus said the king sent them to call Macbeth the King of Cawdor. Then Macbeth thinks to himself about the possibilities of being king and how he would get to the crown. At that point even the thought of murder is horrifying to him. Macbeth is shook up by the idea of ruling in borrowed robes. They decide to talk later and they all exit. I chose this scene because it is the first time in the play that Macbeth even thought about murder, representing a major turning point

Shakespeare is known for many themes These thousands of themes that still apply to our everyday lives. One theme would be cheating is a temporary fix, untill someone finds out, then justice will be served' This theme is crucial in Macbeth because Macbeth himself cheats his way to the top to become king. He starts killing people that at one point he never thought he could do. Macbeth personally stabs Duncan then blames the servants.Then he orders his men to kill Banquo. He covers for himself, not carign about anyone else. By the end of Macbeth many people have been wrongfully accused and punished. Although Macbeth tried to cover his tracks, eventually he becomes known as a traitor. Macbeth is killed at the end of the play, essentially making all of the killing for nothing. This relates to todays world. If we cheat to get ahead in work, school, sports, or any other aspects of our lives, it doesnt mean the same if you worked to earn it. Justice will be served.
