Storyboard Text

  • “Is this a dagger which I see before me. The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee. I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.”
  • "My hands are of your color, but I shame To wear a heart so white."
  • “Confusion now hath made his masterpiece. Most sacrilegious murder hath broke ope The Lord’s anointed temple, and stole thence The life o’ th’ building.”
  • He talks about the dagger and how the handle is pointing towards him, asking him to take it, to kill king Duncan. He mentions how he hasn’t but he wants to and that he knows he will in the future and he will kill the king.
  • "Those of his chamber, as it seemed, had done't: Their hands and faces were all badged with blood; So were their daggers, which unwiped we found Upon their pillows. They stared, and were distracted. No man's life was to be trusted."
  • Lady Macbeth is talking to Macbeth after he kills Duncan and he comes back with the murder weapons in both hands, as she grabs them from his hands and returns them to the scene of the crime because he could not do it himself. She gets her hands stained with their blood as well. Except she is ashamed to have a pure heart and do such terrible things to two innocent men.
  • "And Duncan's horses - a thing most strange and certain - Beauteous and swift, the minions of their race, Contending 'gainst obedience, as they would make War with mankind."
  • The meaning of this text is Macduff talking about the worst thing imaginable to happen, someone has broken into the lord’s anointed temple and “stolen the life out of it”.
  • Ross: "Will you to scone?" Macduff: "No, cousin, I'll to Fife." Ross: "Well, I will thither."
  • Lennox, one of the king’s workers, talks to the men about Duncan’s death, saying that the chamber guards were stained with blood, theirs and the kings. They were trusted to protect the king and they were the ones to “kill him”.
  • He talks about how his loyal-ness is being betrayed and how the earth is all upside down and all the things that shouldn’t happen, are happening.
  • Ross and Macduff speak of Macbeth becoming king and going to see his coronation. But because they were loyal to Duncan, Macduff says he will just go back to his land and skip Macbeth's ceremony.
