We will proceed no further in this business. He hath honored me of late, and I have bought Golden opinions from all sorts of people, which would be worn now in their newest gloss, Not cast aside too soon.
How now? what news? He has almost supped. Why have you left the chamber?
Hath he asked for me?
Know you not he has?
Was the hope drunk wherin you dressed yourself? Hath it slept since? And wakes it now, to look so green and pale at what did it so freely? From this time such I account thy love. Art thou afeard to be the same in thine own and and valor as thou art in desire? Wouldst thou have that which thou esteem'st the ornament of life and live a coward in thine own esteem, letting, "I dare not " wait upon " I would "Like the poor cat'i'th' adage?
I dare do all that may become a man. Who dares do more in none
What beast was’t, then,That made you break this enterprise to me?When you durst do it, then you were a man;And to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man. Nor time nor placeDid then adhere, and yet you would make both.They have made themselves, and that their fitness now Does unmake you. I have given suck, and know How tender ’tis to love the babe that milks me.I would, while it was smiling in my face,Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums And dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this
There's several tones mixed into this one part of this scene. You can grasp an uncomfortable awkward vibe from MacBeth, who clearly is being put down by LM. With her anger towards M, she gives a peer pressure attitude that would be overwhelming for M. Hence giving off that vibe.
Some figurative language that can be found is when LM says, " I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that mils me. I would while it was smiling in my face, have plucked my nipple form his boneless gums and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this." Essentially LM is comparing her sharing one of the most intimate moments tha can be shared which is breastfeeding your child, and then her killing it, with Macbeth's situation saying that if she can go through with her bad deed than M should be able to go through his.
The theme I found in this situaion is Masculinity being derived from cruelty. In the final box you see LM say, "That you break this enterprise to me? When you durst do it, then you were a man." She is stating that with him telling her that he is not going to go through with killing duncan that he shall not become a man until he does so.
