  • RL 1  
  • Still it cried "Sleep no more!" to all the house. "Glamis hath murdered sleep, and therefore Cawdor shall sleep no more. MacBeth shall sleep no more."(II,ii, 39-41)
  • RL 2  
  • I go, and it is done. The bell invites me. Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a kneel that summons thee to heaven or hell. (II,i,61-63)
  • In this textable, It shows Mucduff finding the dead body of King Duncan and reacting to it in major schock. At the start of ACT II Macbeth is waiting for Lady Macbeth's signal so that he can go and kill Duncan. He does so, when he arrives back at his castle he starts freaking at the act that he had just committed. Macbeth brought the bloody dagger with him, so Lady Macbeth wipes it and places it in-front of the 2 guards. In the morning near Macbeth's castle Macduff finds the King dead (as my picture perfectly replicates). He runs outside and tells the others
  • RL 4 
  • Whose howl’s his watch, thus with his stealthy pace,With Tarquin’s ravishing strides, towards his design moves like a ghost. (II,i,53-55)
  • In this textable it shows Macbeth freaking out after killing the king and arriving home to tell Lady Macbeth what happened A theme in the second act is "Insanity is the result of a guilty conscience". This occurs when Macbeth returns to Lady Macbeth and he says "I have done the deed."(II,ii,14) Upon saying that Macbeth starts freaking out and yelling in a terrifying manner. He claims that he will never be able to sleep again.  Macbeth's insanity gets him when he fells guilty about committing the murder of King Duncan.
  • RL 4 pt2
  • Th’ expedition of my violent love Outrun the pauser, reason. Here lay Duncan, His silver skin laced with his golden blood.(II,iii,104-106)
  • This textable shows Macbeth wit his dagger in his hand right about to kill Duncan. Macbeth is the main Character in the story, and the second act is where he starts to change. At the start of ACT 2 he kills King Duncan, and when he goes back to his wife he goes insane because of the guilt he felt for killing Duncan. He made Lady Macbeth feel annoyed because he brought the knife back to their quarters, and she took the knife back to Duncan's room. 
  • Conclusion
  • This textable shows Macbeth walking into the kings bedroom right about to kill him. When Macbeth was approaching the king to murder him, he said "Whose howl’s his watch, thus with his stealthy pace,With Tarquin’s ravishing strides, towards his design moves like a ghost."(II,i,53-55) Macbeth was comparing himself to Tarquin (a Roman prince who snuck into a Roman wife's room in the middle of the night and committed horrible acts) He said that like Tarquin he was as stealthy as a ghost ready to commit the deed.
  • This textable shoes Macbeth explaining his innocence after Duncan was found dead by Malcolm in the morning with Lady Macbeth and Lennox beside him. This quote is one of the most important lines in ACT II, it shoes Macbeth proving that he innocent and that he did not kill the King making the other characters think that he is indeed innocent. He says that his emotions overpower his reason which would have made him stop to think before committing the deed.
  • In this textable it shows Macduff running outside with Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, and Lennox yelling and telling the others that King Duncan has been murdered. All in all ACT II was one of the most important Acts in the story so far, it was full of figurative language and had a lot of important details including Macbeth killing the king, Macduff finding the dead corspe, and Donalbain escaping to Ireland, and Malcolm escaping to England
  • IAwake!-Awake! Ring the alarum bell.—Murder and treason!Banquo and Donalbain, Malcolm, awake! (II,iii,67-69)
