Who is this bloody man? I bet he can tell us the latest news about the revolt.
This is the brave sergeant who fought to keep me from being captured. Hail, brave friend!
Tell the king what was happening in the battle when you left it.
For a while you couldn’t tell who would win. he villainous rebel Macdonwald was supported by foot soldiers and horsemen, and Lady Luck was with him. But Luck and Macdonwald together weren’t strong enough. Brave Macbeth fought his way to Macdonwald and split him open from his navel to his jawbone and stuck his head on our castle walls.
Listen to this, King: as soon as we sent those Irish soldiers running for cover, the Norwegian king saw his chance to attack us with fresh troops and shiny weapons.
Didn’t this frighten our captains, Macbeth and Banquo?
The new challenge scared them about as much as sparrows frighten eagles, or rabbits frighten a lion. They fought the new enemy with twice as much force as before. Maybe they wanted to take a bath in their enemies' blood, or make that battlefield as infamous as Golgotha, where Christ was crucified, I don’t know. But I feel weak. My wounds must be tended to.
Who is this?
The worthy Thane of Ross.
Great King, I have come from Fife. The Norwegian flags fleas and they are leading an army assisted by the Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth fought against the Norwegian army shot for shot and end up victorious.
The thane of Cawdor will never again betray me. Go announce that he will be executed, and tell Macbeth that Cawdor’s titles will be given to him.
The thane of Cawdor has lost what the noble Macbeth has won.
