Storyboard Text

  • Act I: Doubt and Uncertainty
  • "We will proceed no further in this business...If we should fail-" (Macbeth Act I Vii 32, 60).
  • Act II: A Troubled Mind
  • "Is this a dagger which I see before me...Mine eyes are made the fools o' th' other senses..." (Act II i 32, 43).
  • Act III: Fearing the Snake
  • "We have scorched the snake, not killed it...Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep In the affliction of these terrible dreams." (Act III ii 13, 17, 18).
  • In Act I, Macbeth has doubts of Lady Macbeth's plan. He doesn't want to kill Duncan because he fears being caught. This shows Macbeth's inner conflict with himself if he should kill Duncan or not.
  • Act IV: Bloodthirsty for Power
  • In Act II, Macbeth is troubled by the fact he is going to kill Duncan. Macbeth's troubled mind is shown when he sees the bloodied dagger. This shows how he still has a conscience and morality.
  • Act IV: Overconfidence
  • "'Fear not, Macbeth; no man that's born of woman Shall e'er have power upon thee.' Then fly, false thanes..." (Act V iii).
  • "There is ten thousand--" (Act V iii).
  • In Act III, Macbeth's demeanor diminishes into a paranoid, power-hungry man. He fears of losing the throne to Banquo and his son, who are the snake. Macbeth fears he only wounded and not killed all those who opposes him. He doesn't feel safe until all those who are his enemies are killed. This shows how he fears losing his power.
  • Macbeth wants absolute certainty that he will stay in power. He goes to the extent of killing Macduff's whole family. He has become so consumed with power, he has become bloodthirsty and kills without a thought.
  • "...give to th' edge o' the' sword his wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls..." (Act IV i 151-152).
  • Macbeth's judgement has been clouded by his confidence. He has become ignorant that he can't win the battle with Macduff.
