This is a copy of the First three Act
Act I: Doubt and Uncertainty
"We will proceed no further in this business...If we should fail-" (Macbeth Act I Vii 32, 60).
Act II: A Troubled Mind
"Is this a dagger which i see before me...Mine eyes are made the fools o' th' other senses..." (Act II i 32, 43).
Act III: Fear Losing the Throne
"We have scorched the snake, not killed it...Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep In the affliction of these terrible dreams." (Act III ii 13, 17, 18).
In Act I, Macbeth has doubts of Lady Macbeth's plan. He doesn't want to kill Duncan because he fears being caught. This shows Macbeth's inner conflict with himself if he should kill Duncan or not.
In Act II, Macbeth is troubled by the fact he is going to kill Duncan. Macbeth's troubled mind is shown when he sees the bloodied dagger. This shows how he still has a conscience and morality.
In Act III, Macbeth's demeanor diminishes into a paranoid, power-hungry man. He fears of losing the throne to Banquo and his son, who are the snake. Macbeth has no peace until Banquo and his son is dead.
