Storyboard Text

  • Act I : Bravery and ucertainty
  • "... Thane of Glamis! / Thane of Cawdor! / that shall be king hereafter"( Macbeth, I, iii,219).
  • Act II : Weak and guilty
  • "To know my deed 'twere best not know myself"(Maacbeth, II, ii, 236).
  • Act III : Ambitious and paranoid
  • "Then comes my fit again. I had else been perfect...(Macbeth, III, iv, 252).
  • Macbeth was brave during the vigorous battle, so much to be rewarded a higher position. However, later that night he was visited by three weird sisters that told him a prophecy of his future. These statements baffled him. His brain was racked with uncertainty and doubt of what was to come of his future.
  • Act IV : Evil and more evil
  • It has been decided that king Duncan shall be killed so Macbeth and Lady Macbeth will take the throne. Macbeth has second thoughts, but is forced to continue by his wife. In this moment it as if he is inferior to her. She holds all the power and ambition, leaving him weak. Macbeth kills the king as told, along with the guards so that there are no witnesses. He can't believe what he has done. He is now overcome with guilt and shame.
  • Act V : Arrogant and Dead
  • Macbeth has lost his morality and is filled with ambition. He has now ordered three murderers to kill Banquo and Fleance as to keep his throne. Once the deed has been done, he is told that Banquo is dead, but Fleance has escaped. He is so paranoid that Fleance will come to revenge his father and kill him. During the dinner, Macbeth sees the ghost of Banquo, believing that he has come back to haunt him.
  • Final analysis : killed by over-confidence
  • Macbeth has lost all the morality he once had. He goes to the three witches and finds out that he should beware Macduff and that he can't be harmed. However, he still decides that he needs to get rid of Macduff. He plans a surprise attack to kill anyone at the house. The murderers kill the son, then kill the wife of Maduff. Now, a revenge war is being planned by Macduff and Malcolm against Macbeth and his tyrany.
  • "He has killed me, mother"(Macbeth, IV, ii, 268).
  • Since Macbeth has assurance from the prophecy that he can't die, he has become extremely arrogant. His confidence overflows, making him fearless. However this is the death of him. Since he was overconfident, he was ready to fight anyone in his way. He didn't realize that there was a loophole to this prophecy.
  • "I bear a charmed life, which must not yield To one of woman born"(Macbeth, V, viii, 12- 13, 287).
  • Macbeth has so much arrogance once he is told his prophecy from the three witches. He believes that he is undefeatable to any man. This makes him unready to fight someone since he automatically thinks he will win. It was his overconfidence that really is the death of him. If he had an ounce of fear to adjust his view, he might of prepared more and had a chance to survive. Instead, he theoretically killed himself.
