Storyboard Text

  • Act One: Scene Three
  • The Thane lives yet, but treasons capital. He will die soon enough.
  • Macbeth! The King hath happily received, the news of thy success. He bade me, from him, call thee Thane of Cawdor!
  • Two truths are told, as happy prologues to the swelling act. My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, shakes so my single state of man.
  • The Thane of Cawdor lives. Why do you dress me in borrowed robes?
  • The instruments of darkness tell us truths, but we can never know the consequences.
  • Act One: Scene Four
  • The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step on which I must overleap. Let not light see my black desires. Let not the eye see the hand.
  • O worthiest cousin! I have begun to plant thee and will labour to ensure you grow. With happiness I announce our eldest Malcolm will be The Prince of Cumberland!
  • The service and loyalty I owe, in doing it pays itself.  You are welcome at Inverness, I shall take your leave to inform my wife.
  • Act One: Scene Five
  • Unsex me here and fill me, from crown to toe, top-full of direst cruelty. Let no natural stirrings of conscience shake my cruel purpose. Let not my keen knife see the wound it makes.
  • Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature. It is too full of human kindness. But I shall chastise thee with the valour of my tongue!
  • Ross and Angus inform Macbeth that he is now the Thane of Cawdor, fulfilling the second prophecy. This begins Macbeth's internal conflict about the extents he was willing to go to for the crown.
  • Act One: Scene Five
  • My dearest love, Duncan comes here tonight and he shall leave tomorrow.
  • Here Macbeth displays his two-faced nature because he, much like the Thane of Cawdor, masks his true emotions well. Duncan continues making the same mistakes as he instills too much trust in Macbeth. 
  • Act One: Scene Six
  • This castle hath a pleasant seat. The air, nimbly and sweet, recommends itself unto our gentle senses. Hello, our honored hostess! Thank you for your troubles.
  • We will proceed no further in this business Lady Macbeth, Duncan hath honored me of late. I dare do all that may become a man. Who dares do more is none.
  • Lady Macbeth reads the letter Macbeth sent her with information about the Witches' prophecies. She does not give a second thought to murdering Duncan and is even more determined than Macbeth to acquire the crown. 
  • Act One: Scene Seven
  • The King's here in double trust: first, I am his kinsman and his subject. Second, I am his host. Duncan hath been so clear in his great office, I don't think I can kill him.
  • In this scene, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth prepare to mask their true intentions and act like everything is normal. This emphasizes the theme, the difference between appearances and reality.
  • Great Glamis, worthy Cawdor! Your face, my Thane, is as a book where men may read strange matters. You must look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it. To display fear may raise suspicion, leave all the rest to me. 
  • Ironically, Duncan and his men find Macbeth's palace beautiful and a great place to stay. Lady Macbeth greets Duncan with a big smile and pretends like she is happy to see him.
  • Welcome your Majesty. All our service, done double, cannot contend with the honors you load our houses with. Please, come inside.
  • Fine, I am settled. False face must hide what the false heart doth know.
  • In the last scene of Act One, Macbeth has second thoughts about killing his King. This shows that some part of him is loyal to Duncan. However, before Macbeth can call off the murder, Lady Macbeth arrives and convinces him otherwise. She questions his masculinity and is the reason that Macbeth decides to go through with the murder in Act Two. 
  • Was the hope drunk wherein you dressed yourself? Such I account thy love. Thou art not a real man if you back down now.  Don't live lik a coward for the rest of thy life.
