Storyboard Text

  • In Act 4, Scene 2, Lady McDuff has just had a talk with her cousin Ross. She is upset and angry. She then turns to her son and argues with him about his fathers innocence 
  • Sirrah, your father's dead. And what will you do now? How will you live? 
  • As birds do, Mother. 
  • Lady MacDuff continues to argue with Sirrah about his father. 
  • With what I get, I mean, and so do they. 
  • What, with worms and flies?
  • The argue and play on words continues. 
  • Poor bird! Thou'dst never fear the net nor lime, the pitfall nor the gin. 
  • Why should I, mother? Poor birds they are not set for. My father is not dead , for all your saying. 
  • And on it merrily continues. 
  • Yes, he is dead. How wilt thou do for a father ? 
  • Nay, how will you do for a husband?
  • They are now insulting each other with big words, while still fighting. 
  • Then you'll buy' em to sell again. 
  • Why, I can buy me twenty at any market. 
  • In the next part of this scene, a messenger comes to tell Lady MacDuff from her impending doom. 
  • Bless you, fair dame! I am not to you known, though in your state of honor I am perfect. I doubt some danger does approach you nearly. If you will  take a homely man's advice, be not here found. Hence with your little ones. To fright you thus methinks I am to savage; To do worse to you were fell cruelty, which is too nigh your person. Heaven preserve you! I dare abide no longer.
