  • MacbethAct 2, Scene 2Gavin Lin
  • That which hath made them drunk hath made me bold; What hath quenched them hath given me fire. Hark, peace. It was the owl that shrieked, the fatal bellman, Which gives the stern'st good-night. He is about it. The doors are open and the surfeited grooms Do mock their charge with snores. I have drugged their possets, That death and nature do contend about them, Whether they live or die.
  • Who's there, What Ho?
  • Alack, I am afraid they have awaked, And 'tis not done. The attempt and not the deed Confounds us. Hark. I laid their daggers ready; He could not miss 'em. Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done't. My Husband.
  • Did not you speak? I heard the owl scream and the crickets cry.
  • Now
  • Ay
  • When
  • As I descended?
  • I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear a noise?
  • Donalbain.
  • A foolish thought,to say a sorry sight.
  • This is a sorry sight.
  • Hark. Who lies i' the second chamber?
  • There are two lodged together
  • There's one did laugh in's sleep and one cried 'Murder', that they did wake each other. I stood and heard them, but they did say their prayers and addressed them again to sleep.
  • One cried 'God bless us' and 'Amen' the other,As they had seen me with these hangman's hands.Listening their fear, I could not say 'Amen'When they did say 'God bless us.'
