Storyboard Text

  • Blood
  • And with thy bloody and invisible hand Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond Which keeps me pale. (3.2.48-50)
  • Banquo's Lease on Life
  • Blood
  • Mine eyes are made the fools o'th'other senses, Or else worth all the rest. I see thee still, And on thy blade and dudgeon gouts of blood, Which was not so before. There's no such thing. (2.1.44-47)
  • Blood
  • I am in blood Stepp'd in so far that should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go'er. (3.4.136-138)
  • Macbeth orders Banquo to be killed. He is starting to isolate himself from everyone and is putting more "blood on his hands".  Although he doesn't actually have blood on his hand this scene makes you imagine as if he does.
  • This is the scene right before Macbeth murders Duncan. Thinking about the murder has caused him to hallucinate about the floating dagger in front of him. The blood imagery comes in when Macbeth talks about the floating dagger being bloody.
  • Macbeth's ambition to be King and stay King has led him down a very bloody path. He's saying here that he so deep in blood, there is no way out, he may as well keep going. He will stop at nothing to get what he wants now. The blood imagery comes from him saying he is deep in blood.
