Storyboard Text

  • "Yet it was said / It should not stand in thy posterity / But that myself should be the root and father / Of many kings... / May they not be my oracles as well, / And set me up in hope?" Macbeth Act 3.1.5-10
  • Banquo considers the prophecies of the witches. He thinks that since their predictions for what would happen to Macbeth came true, surely their predictions for him to father a long line of kings would hold true as well. 
  • "Tonight we hold a solemn supper, sir, / And I'll request your presence." Macbeth Act 3.1.15-16
  • Macbeth invites Banquo to a formal supper. He also mentions that Malcolm and Donalbain are still out there and have not been served justice for Duncan's murder.
  • "He chid the sisters / When first they put the name of king upon me / And bade them speak to him. Then, prophet-like, / They hailed him father to a line of kings. / Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown" Macbeth Act 3.1.62-66
  • Macbeth also realizes that the witches prophesied a long line of kings for Banquo, not himself. He begins to think that his reign will ultimately become forgotten and meaningless 
  • "And with him / Fleance, his son, that keeps him company, / Whose absence is no less material to me / Than is his father's, must embrace the fate / Of that dark hour." Macbeth 3.1.152-157
  • Macbeth tells the hired murderers that Banquo must be killed because he can't be trusted. Macbeth also orders the killing of Banquo's family.
