Macbeth Act 2 Scene 1 Dagger
I see you still, and you look as real as the dagger I'm drawing now, you beckon me to go where I was going already, where I was to use an instrument just like you.
I can't go back. I'm afraid even to think about what I've done. I dare not to look at it again
Macbeth Act 2 Scene 2 Fear of the King
Coward! Give me the daggers, the dead and the sleeping can't hurt you any more than pictures can, only children fear pictures of the devil. If Duncan bleeds, I'll anoint the guards with it, for they must seem like the guilty ones.
Macbeth Act 2 Scene 3 The Princes Flee
A murderous arrow has been shot but, it hasn't landed on us yet- we'll be safest if we avoid it entirely. Therefore, to our horses. No polite good-byes; we'll just steal ourselves away.
This scene showcases Macbeth's guilty conscience about the crime he is about to commit, and the level of insanity his will to become king is driving him to.
In this scene, Lady Macbeth is angered by Macbeth's cowardice, and frames the guards for the murder that was committed. Macbeth is feeling remorseful and panicked.
The princes take their safety into their own hands, and flee Scotland to protect themselves from the murderer. This is important because it raises suspicions about them, and leaves Macbeth next in line for the throne.
