  • Blood Imagery 
  • It will have blood they say: blood will have blood. (3.4.122)
  • Blood imagery is used in this scene as a sign of guilt and distress because of the wrongdoings of her husband. In her sleep she is troubled by evil thoughts of the past, such as killing Duncan, killing Banquo and killing the innocent Macduff family. She feels so guilty in fact that she imagines blood stained on her hands that ironically, would be simply gone from a quick wash, as she once told her husband.
  • After killing Duncan, Macbeth feels instant regret and remorse. He is conscious of the terrible decision he has made that will initially change Scotland forever. This famous quote uses blood imagery to describe the imprint of murder on his life, which he cannot seem to let go of. He believes with the help of even the biggest body of water, he will always be aware and known as the murderer of sleep.
  • Scene 4 of act 3 is a major turning point for Macbeth and Lady Macbeth because they have seen Macbeth's unstable conscience and unhealthy mind. He is truly beginning to realize his capabilities and had a clear representation of who he is hurting in the process, thanks to Banquo's ghost. This famous quote describes that the lives of those murdered will seek blood from the conspirer himself; thus bringing a murder to light.
