Storyboard Text

  • Act I-Bravery and Determination
  • "For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name), Disdaining Fortune, with his brandished steel, Which smoked with bloody execution,"(Act I Scene i 16-18).
  • Act II-Guilt and Regret
  • "My hands are of your color, but I shame To wear a heart so white"(Act II Scene iii 62-63).
  • Act III-Fear and Paranoia
  • "Avaunt, and quit my sight!"(Act III Scene iv 93)
  • In this scene a captain is telling stories about Macbeth's bravery in battle. Through his descriptions of Macbeth, we learn about how courageous he is in battle.
  • Act IV-Ambition
  • "Even till destruction sicken, answer me To what I ask you." (Act IV Scene i 60-61)
  • During this scene, Macbeth is feeling guilty over killing King Duncan, so his wife scolds him for being unmanly. This description is almost the opposite of how we see him in Act 1. We begin to see a change in his character in this act.
  • Act V-Heartless
  • "The queen my lord,is dead"(Act V Scene v 16)
  • After Macbeth becomes king, he begins to fear that others will overtake him and he grows paranoid. His paranoia gets so bad that he hallucinates the ghost of Banquo. We see Macbeth go from brave warrior to fearful coward.
  • Final Analysis
  • While Lady Macbeth was full of ambition in Act II, here we see Macbeth is the one with ambition now. Macbeth goes to the witches and demands that they show him another prophecy of the future. Here he is overly ambitious which shows how far he has changed.
  • By this time, the old Macbeth has died. What has been left is a cold emotionless husk of his former self. He feels nothing when his wife dies. All Macbeth desires is to have complete power, and will do anything to achieve his goal, even destroying himself.
  • "She should have died hereafter"(Act V Scene v 17)
  • In the end,Macbeth is slain by Macduff. What could have led Macbeth to his destruction are the words of the witches. If Macbeth had not listened to him, he would still be alive and be honored by his friends. If Macbeth had not taken fate into his own hands he might've become king eventually and fairly.
