Storyboard Text

  • Act I - Brave, Loyal, Unsure
  • "For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name),/Disdaining Fortune, with his brandish steel" (Macbeth, I, i, 16-17).
  • Act II - Weak, Guilty
  • Act III - Dark, Manipulative, Crazy
  • "Though canst not say i did it. Never shake/Thy gory locks at me" (Macbeth, III, iv, 50-51).
  • In Act I, Macbeth is a brave loyal soldier. He is fighting hard for his country and is even named Thane of Glamis. However, Macbeth meets three witches who give him a prophecy. He is unsure on what to do with the information given to him. Therefore, in act I of the play, Macbeth is a loyal and brave soldier but is unsure on how to handle the prophecy.
  • Act IV - Dark, Crazy, Mad
  • In Act II, Macbeth is portrayed as a weak man. Macbeth has killed Duncan and he says "I am afraid to think what have I done./Look on 't again I dare not" (Macbeth, II, ii, 49-50). His weak mind was manipulated by Lady Macbeth and he gave into killing Duncan. Macbeth can not even look at the awful crime he has committed. He feels guilty for what he has done and what he has become.
  • Act V - Overly confident, Determined, Brave, Crazy
  • "Ring the alarum bell! -Blow wind, come wrack,/At least we'll die with harness on our back" (Macbeth, V, v, 51-52).
  • In Act III, Macbeth has changed dramatically. Lady Macbeth used to be the manipulative, cruel character. The roles are reversed and Macbeth is now the crazy, dark and manipulative one. He kills Banquo and attempts to kill Fleance. Macbeth is the mastermind behind the plan. In result of Banquo's death, Macbeth starts to see a ghost of Banquo. Macbeth is starting to go crazy.
  • Overall Analysis
  • Macbeth becomes even darker in act IV. Macbeth finds out that no one can harm him. Knowing so, he still kills Macduff's family. He has become a dark man. Macbeth is now crazy and unpredictable. He will kill anyone just because he wants to. Macbeth has had a horrible change in personality. Macbeth is a whole other person.
  • "Then live, Macduff; what need I fear of thee/But yet I'll make assurance double sure/...Thou shalt not live" (Macbeth, IV, i, 83-85).
  • Macbeth is confident he will win the battle. Even after hearing the news of the war, Macbeth is still determined to fight until his death. In Act V, Macbeth shows how determined he is to win the battle, but also shows how overly confident he becomes. His confidence is a cause to his downfall, along with how crazy Macbeth has become.
  • Macbeth kills many people, including Banquo, Lady Macduff, and King Duncan. At the beginning of the play, Macbeth is a brave and loyal solider. He then kills Duncan and slowly starts to become a darker person. He becomes blood thirsty and kills many people to keep his power. He turns crazy and is driven mad. Towards the end, the audience sees the brave side of Macbeth once more until he is slain in war.
