No more that thane of Cawdor shall deceiveOur bosom interest: go pronounce his present death,And with his former title greet Macbeth.
I'll see it done.
Scene 3: Macbeth Hears His Future
Speak, if you can: what are you?
All hail, Macbeth! hail to thee, thane of Glamis! All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, thane of Cawdor! All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!
This where the audience was introduced to the theme of a false face, which is important to the rest of the story.
Scene 5: Bad Intentions
The first prediction of the witches comes true.
Scene 6: Visit From The King
Macbeth meets the witches for the first time and hears his future.
Scene 7: Lady Macbeth
Lady Macbeth fears that Macbeth has too much kindness in him to do what will make him king so she decides that she will do whatever it takes to convince him.
This scene adds to the idea of a false face. The king and others come to see Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and she is complemented on her hospitality. Although she will push Macbeth to murder King Duncan.
See, see, our honour'd hostess! The love that follows us sometime is our trouble, Which still we thank as love. Herein I teach you How you shall bid God 'ild us for your pains,And thank us for your trouble.
Macbeth is reluctant to kill the king; however, Lady Macbeth is not going to let him get out of doing it. She pushes him to commit the murder and blame it on the servants. This scene adds to one theme of the play showing that bad deeds do not end well. Lady Macbeth pushes Macbeth to murder, she goes crazy, and Macbeth is killed.
