Storyboard Text

  • Act I: Loyalty
  • I am now Thane of Cawdor!
  • Act II: Guilt
  • Stop being so sympathetic, the deed is done
  • I cannot live with this
  • Act III: Paranoia
  • Macbeth shows true loyalty and bravery when he is named Thane of Cawdor after the previous Thane of Cawdor is killed. Macbeth states that "the greatest is behind... When those that gave the Thane of Cawdor to [him]/ Promised no less to them" (Act 1, iii, 117, 119-120). Macbeth clearly shows that he will be the best Thane of Cawdor for his people but he also wants to be king one day.
  • Act IV: Desperate
  • Please sisters! Let me know my future
  • After Lady Macbeth's devilish plan to have Macbeth murder King Duncan, he is feeling guilt when realizes what he has just done. After he is dealing with the crime he has committed he notices that, "[He] does murder sleep - the innocent sleep" (Act 2, ii, 34) of King Duncan and he feels that he can no longer sleep as well. Macbeth sobs over the incident, while Lady Macbeth expresses no shame what so ever.
  • Act V: Confidence leads to Doubt
  • You better not be lying to me or you will be put to death!
  • Macbeth's character really starts to change as he hires 3 murders to go and kill Banquo and his son. Macbeth has become paranoid when he realizes that he has no sons to take the throne after he dies, but Banquo does. "It is concluded. Banquo, thy souls fligh,/ If it find heaven, must find it out tonight" (Act 3, ii, 140-141).Macbeth sets his plan to kill Banquo and his son, but unfortunately Fleance escaped which ruined Macbeth's devilish plan.
  • Final Analysis
  • I will go down fighting!!
  • As Macbeth demands, "Tell me, thou unknown power" (Act 4, i, 68). He eagerly awaits to hear what the witches have to say about his future. There is a drastic change in Macbeth's character that goes from dark and devilish to a very desperate and demanding point of him. The three witches tell him his three apparitions that hold a clue to his future and what waits with him and Macduff.
  • Macbeth is very confident based on the prophecy from the witches, as they said no one could defeat him unless the trees from Birnam Wood travel all the way to Dunsinade. The trees managed to move themselves as Malcolm and Macduff's army grabbed the branches from the trees to hide themselves. "I looked toward Birnam.../The woods began to move" (Act V, iv, 34-35). Mabeth starts off as a overconfident king thinking that nothing can hurt him but unfortunately that led to his death.
  • Birnam Wood is traveling to Dunsinade!
  • At the end of the play, Macbeth goes from being doubtful about Malcolm and Macduff's powerful army to very courageous in a sense that he will go down fighting no matter what happens. As Macbeth cries,"Through Birnam Wood be come to Dunsinade/ And thou opposed, being of no women born/, Yet i will try the last. before my body/ I throw my warlike shield" (V, viii, 30-33). He is explaining that he will not surrender and he will fight against Macduff even though he does not come out on top.
