Storyboard Text

  • Act I
  • "Stars hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires" (Macbeth, I, iv, 50-51)
  • Act II
  • "Methought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep'" (Macbeth, II, ii, 33-34)
  • Act III
  • "Both of you know Banquo was your enemy" (Macbeth, III, ii, 112-113)
  • In Act I, Macbeth is very ambitious after hearing his prophecy from the witches. Macbeth never thought about kiling Duncan, but now he had thoughts about doing so, even though he knows it's wrong.
  • Act IV
  • "Then live, Macduff. What need I fear of thee? But yet I’ll make assurance double sure" (Macbeth, IV, i, 83-84)
  • In Act II, Macbeth is extremely guilty. After he kills Duncan, he feels that he cannot sleep, as he has murdered sleep itself, when he killed Duncan.
  • Act V
  • "And be these juggling fiends no more believed that palter with us in a double sense" (Macbeth, V, viii, 19-20).
  • After becoming king, he thinks about the witches prophecy. He worries that his kingdom will fall to Banquo's children once he dies. He begins to come up with the evil plans, as opposed to Lady Macbeth doing it.
  • Final Analysis
  • Macbeth finally descends into madness during Act IV. He begins killing people for no reason other than to harm them. When he kills Macduff's wife and son, it is for no reason other than to kill them.
  • Over the course of Act V, Macbeth becomes overly confident. He thinks that he is invincible due to the prophecy. This results in his downfall, but he realizes too late that the prophecy has a double meaning, and dies.
  • In the end, Macbeth's ambition led to his downfall. He went from a loyal, caring man to a ruthless, coldblooded killer. In Act I he was being manipulated, but ended up becoming the manipulator. Had he not been so ambitious, he would not have died as soon as he did.
