Storyboard Text

  • Macduff: "I believe drink gave thee lie last night." (2.3.31)
  • Porter: "That it did...made a shift to cast him." (2.3.32-34)
  • Macduff: "Ring the alarm bell!...countenance this horror." (2.3.67-74)
  • Lady Macbeth: "What's the business...speak, speak." (2.3.74-76)
  • Macbeth: "Had I died...to brag of." (2.3.84-89)
  • Banquo: "Too cruel, anywhere...it is not so." (2.3.82-84)
  • In this small part of the scene, Macduff is accusing Porter of drinking too much last night. When he uses "gave thee the lie" it gives a negative connotation because lying is a negative thing. Then Porter admits to his actions and is a little ashamed because it influenced him a lot and "took up his legs".
  • Malcolm: "What will you do?...I'll to England." (2.3.128-130)
  • Donaldbain: "To Ireland, I...the nearer bloody." (2.3.131-134)
  • As Macduff discovers the murder of the King, his lines are obviously showing his great sorrow for the death of such a great man. When Lady Macbeth speaks on the other hand, she uses words like 'hideous' and trumpet calls' as if it's a disturbance in her house. She was being such a great hostess earlier, and she's now trying to cover up her crime, but her words aren't helping her out that much.
  • Ross: "Ha, good father...should kiss it?" (2.4.4-9)
  • Old Man: "'Tis unnatural,...and killed." (2.4.10-18)
  • Banquo doesn't seem to be as upset about this whole thing, because he doesn't have any exclamations in his saying. Then, Macbeth comes in and tries to make it seem like he is upset about the murder, but he uses words like 'blessed', 'toys', 'grace', and 'wine'. He also isn't using words well to try to act sorrowful.
  • Both sons don't really know what to do after their father died, but they don't want to be charged with murder because of the rumors from others. They decide to split apart because they will be safer. They both don't sound that upset, just afraid because they use words with negative connotations.
  • Both of these men are discussing the death of the King. Ross complains about how the sun was hidden away for a long time, and the old man confirms his description. They both describe very peculiar things too, which makes the reader feel suspicious about that particular night. Although the reader already knows what happened, these words make the scene even more creepy and eerie.
