Storyboard Text

  • Act I-- Bravery and Confusion
  • "For brave Macbeth- well he deserves that name- Disdaining Forture, with his Brandish'd steel, which smoked with bloody execution, like valour's minion carved out his passage till he faced the slave" (i, ii, 16-20).
  • Act II-- Doubt and Guilt
  • "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. Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight? or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation" (ii,i,44-45)
  • Act III-- Ambition and Fate
  • "We have scorched the snake, not killed it" (iii,ii,15).
  • Macbeth went from being brave in war and honoring his king to wanting to kill his king to make sure his prophecy is comes true.
  • Act IV-- Violence and Fate
  • "The castle of Macduff I will surprise, Seize upon Fife; give to the edge o' the sword His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls That trace him in his line. No boasting like a fool; This deed I'll do before this purpose cool. But no more sights!-Where are these gentlemen?" (IV, i).
  • During Act II, Macbeth was having doubts about killing King Duncan. But Lady Macbeth was telling that it was a good idea, so he could have the throne to himself and make the prophecy be true. Towards the end of Act II, Macbeth kills Duncan and after he does that he feels very guilty about what he has done.
  • Act V-- Fear and Death
  • During Act Three, Macbeth wants to get rid of any witnesses that could've seen him kill the king. Once people found out that Duncan was dead, the lords declared Macbeth the king.
  • Final Analysis of Macbeth
  • Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand?" Macbeth Quote (Act II, Scene I).
  • During Act 4, Macbeth wants to learn more about his prophecy, so he goes and visits the weird sisters. They warn him that some of the things are violent and will give him violent thoughts. After he sees the visions, Macbeth wants to get rid of one that is in his way of making the prophecies true.
  • In Act 5, Malcolm and his army attacked Macbeth's castle. Macbeth now realizes that what the witches said had a double meaning. Malcolm was able to kill Macbeth and be crowned king.
  • Then yield thee, coward, And live to be the show and gaze o' the time: We'll have thee, as our rarer monsters are, Painted on a pole, and underwrit, 'Here may you see the tyrant.' (v,viii,23-27)
  • My final analysis of Macbeth is that he was a confused person that wants to make everyone happy. He wants to be able to give everything they want. He was a hero in the beginning but now he is a stone cold killer because of what he heard from these two crazy witches
