Storyboard Text

  • Lady Macduff says that Macduff doesn't love his family and lacks the natural instinct to protect his family. She points out that even a small bird like a wren, will fight for its family against an owl.
  • He loves us not; He wants the natural touch; for the poor wren The most diminutive of birds, will fight, Her young ones in the nest, against the owl
  • Lady Macduff asks her son how he will live now that his father is dead and he says he will live like birds do, living on whatever he can get.
  • . . . . . How will you live?
  • What, with worms and flies?
  • With what I get, I mean, and so do they.
  • As birds do, mother.
  • Lady Macduff then calls her son a poor bird and he would not know enough to be afraid of traps. Her son asks why, as small birds are not hunted and he does not believe his father is dead.
  • Poor bird! Thou ’dst never fear the net nor lime, The pitfall nor the gin.
  • Why should I, mother? Poor birds they are not set for. My father is not dead, for all your saying.
