Storyboard Text

  • Noble Stature
  • Tragic Flaw
  • Free Choice
  • Macbeth starts as a nobleman and valiant soldier. People praise him for his victory over the Norwegians and the rebellion, "What he hath lost, noble Macbeth hath won"(1.2.77).
  • Reversal of Fortune
  • Macbeth is told by the witches that he will be king. When he was denied the right to be the heir to the throne he immediately considered murder, but contemplates his reasons before following through. "The Prince of Cumberland! that is a step on which I must fall down, or o'er-leap, for in my way it lies ... Let not light see my black and deep desires" (1.4.55-58)
  • Catharsis
  • Macbeth was faced with the choice to kill King Duncan. He was convinced to do the deed by his wife, Lady Macbeth, and her perfect plan. "Art thou afeard to be the same in thine own act and valour as thou art in desire?" (1.7.43-45).
  • After Lady Macbeth dies, Macbeth reflects and realizes his downfall has begun and all that he has gained was for nothing. "Out, out brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and furry, signifying nothing" (5.5.25-30).
  • The story leaves you with a sense of justice that the tragic hero, Macbeth, gets the death he deserved because even in multiple reflections he was a changed man. However you feel sorry for him because he was pushed and manipulated to go down such a path by the witches and his wife. "I will not yield, to kiss the ground before young Malcolm's feet..." (5.7.67-68).
