Storyboard Text

  • ACT 1 Brave and Independent
  • Macbeth: "If th' assasination Could trammel up the consequence and catch With his surcease success, but this blow Might be the be-all and the end-all here" (I, vii, 5)
  • ACT 2 Guilty and Weak
  • Macbeth: "'Glamis hath murdered sleep, and therefore Cawdor Shall sleep no more. Macbeth shall sleep no more.'" (II, ii, 40-41)
  • ACT 3 Evil and Convincing
  • '"Know That it was he, in the times past, which held you So under fortune.. Thus did Banquo"' (III, i, 75-83)
  • Macbeth turns against his desires and the desires of Lady Macbeth. He recognizes that the crime-committing prophecy that the three witches gave to him was wrong. Macbeth knows the consequences if anything goes wrong and knows that it's not worth it to do the evil deed of killing Duncan.
  • ACT 4 Bloodthirsty
  • "The castle of Macduff I will surprise, Seize upon Fife, give to th' edge o' th' sword His wife, His babes and all unfortunate souls" (IV, i, 150-153)
  • Macbeth is sorry and weak for the crime that he has committed. He is very guilty for what he did and feels like he doesn't deserve his position of glamis and cawdor anymore. Also, since he has destroyed the innocence of Duncan's sleep when he murdered him, he isn't allowed to sleep anymore.
  • ACT 5 Confident and Fearless
  • "Bring it after me.- I will not be afraid of death and bane Till Birnam Forest come to Dunsinane" (V, iii, 58-60)
  • Macbeth is trying to trick the murderers that the reason that they are less fortunate is because of what Banquo has done to them. Macbeth wants them to seek revenge and kill Banquo to his favor.
  • Macduff has become a problem to Macbeth. Macbeth talks to the weird sisters of what he can do and asks them for support. He plans to kill Macduff and his family to fulfill his personal problems as king.
  • Malcolm, Macduff, and allies from other countries are coming to kill Macbeth to take the throne back. Macbeth finds out and feels confident because of the prophecy telling him that anyone born of a woman cannot hurt him. He feels that he is safe from danger and feels that he will take victory against them.
  • (Analysis continued..) At the end of the story, Macbeth is putting his prophecy into complete play. He becomes the manipulator and switches roles with Lady Macbeth (manipulated to manipulator). Macbeth is also blood thirsty and wanting to kill people based on his desires and what he thinks is right. Darkness has completely taken over him, he doesn't feel guilty for the his commitments.
  • Macbeth has gone through a lot of change throughout the story. In the beginning, he was an independent, brave and caring person. Also, he didn't really think that the weird sisters' prophecy was possible. Towards the middle of the story, Lady Macbeth manipulated him to doing wrong and pushing the prophecy although Macbeth felt bad and wanted forgiveness after doing and evil deed.
