Storyboard Text

  • Act 2
  • All’s well. I dreamt last night of the three weird sisters: To you they have showed some truth.
  • I think not of them.
  • Is this a dagger I see before me, the handle toward my hand? 
  • Why did you bring these daggers from the place? They must lie there. Go carry them and smear. The sleepy grooms with blood.
  • I’ll go no more: I am afraid to think what I have done; Look on ’t again I dare not.
  • In act 2, the scene starts with Banquo and his son, Fleance, talking about their night, which created a dark mood. As Macbeth joins, Banquo says he dreamed of the three witches and Macbeth answered "I think not of them" (2.1, 22). But he is lying because he thinks about them nonstop. Therefore, I would say that Macbeth is a liar because he is lying to his buddy. 
  • A little water clears us of this deed.
  • When Banquo left, a dagger appears in front of him. As you can see from the phrase above, he was not sure if it is his imagination or reality. However, he followed it and a dagger lead the way to the King Duncan's room where he sleeps peacefully. And then Macbeth killed King Duncan. From this, I can infer that Macbeth murdered King Duncan because of the flow. 
  • Our royal master’s murdered!
  • Lady Macbeth saw that Macbeth brought the bloody daggers, so she tells Macbeth to put it back to where servants are sleeping. However, Macbeth refuses because he got scared of what he has done and see it again. Lady Macbeth takes the initiative to go back and put the daggers down. From this, I can see that Lady Macbeth's power is still over Macbeth's. Macbeth is weak, and not brave enough compared to Lady Macbeth.
  • Lady Macbeth thinks that after washing Duncan's blood, all the problems will be solved. However, the quote Macbeth says in the above shows that he already feels sorry for killing King Duncan. Even though Lady Macbeth is not nice at all, I would say Macbeth has the heart to care about other people.
  • To Know my deed 'twere best not know myself.
  • When Macduff arrived and saw King Duncan's room in the morning, he was scared because Duncan was murdered, so he woke everyone up. When Lady Macbeth and Macbeth heard it, they were pulling up the false face and pretending that they know nothing by saying "Woe, alas! What, in our house?" (2.3, 64). Instead of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, Macduff thinks Duncan's sons hired servants to kills their father since sons left Scotland immediately.
  • Just like Lady Macbeth and Macbeth planned, Macbeth is now a King of Scotland replacing King Duncan, since he has already been named the king and has left for Scone to be crowned. Overall, I would say that Macbeth started off with kind and brave characterization, but becoming to one of the evil characters, just like Lady Macbeth.
  • Ross: "The sovereignty will fall upon Macbeth." Macduff: "He is already named and gone to Scone To be invested." (2.4, 31-33)
