We will meet with Macbeth after the war is over and tell him of his future as Thane of Cawdor and eventually king.
The witches were right about me becoming Thane of Cawdor, but that means I will also become the king. But will I have to deal with King DUncan to do so? I must tell my wife what is happening.
Macbeth lets go to your castle to celebrate your new title!
The Story of Macbeth originally written by William Shakespeare
My husband will become the king. Even if that means killing King Duncan and even if I have to do it.
Three witches gather around and discussed how they would get Macbeth under their spell.
What are you talking about? Are you not man enough to do what needs to be done? You were just saying you could deal with Duncan, now you're acting like a coward! You will be king, so man up and do what you have to do.
I don't know if I can do this.
Macbeth realizes what the witches told him is coming true, but that also means he might have to do something he will regret. He decides to send a letter to his wife explaining what is happening.
You're right! I must do it and I will!
