Who, like a good hardly soldier, fought 'gainst my captivity
What bloody man is that ?
For brave Macbeth, disdaining fortune, with his brandished steel. Which smoked with bloody execution, like Valour's mimion.
God save the king !
All hail, Macbeth ! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor !
All hail, Macbeth ! Hail to thee, Thane of Glamis !
Speak, if you can ! What are you ?
All hail, Macbeth- that shalt be King hereafter !
The three witches plan to meet Macbeth on the heath, as he returns from battle.
Is execution done on Cawdor ?
A soldier reports to King Duncan that the rebel, Macdonwald and his Norwegian supporters, have been defeated. He tells Duncan that the Scottish generals, Macbeth and Banquo, performed bravely in the battle. Duncan announces that he will sentence the rebel, Thane of Cawdor, to death and that Macbeth will be given his title.
O ! Shall sun that morrow see !
After the battle, Macbeth and Banquo meet the three witches who tell Macbeth that he will be King and Thane of Cawdor. Bangquo is told he will be father to a line of Kings. Ross and Angus arrive after the witches have gone and inform Macbeth that he's been given the title, Thane of Cawdor. Despite Banquo's warning from the witches, Macbeth is excited by their prophecies.
Scene 6 & 7
Where's the Thane of Cawdor ?
Your servants ever have theirs, themselves, and what is theirs in count to make their audit at your Highness' pleasure. Still to return your own.
Duncan thanks Macbeth and Banquo for the part they played in defeating the rebels. Duncan announces that Malcom, his eldest son, will be heir to the throne, which ruins Macbeth's secret hope to become King.
They are not yet come back. But i have spoke with one that saw him die.
The service and the loyalty I owe, in doing it, pays itself. Your Highness' part is to receive our duties.
Lady Macbeth reads a letter from her husband, telling of the witches' prophecy. She wants to carry out the murder of Duncan by calling the evil spirits. She tells her husband to leave everything to herself.
My dearest love, Duncan comes here tonight.
(Scene 6) King Duncan arrives at Macbeth's castle, welcomed by Lady Macbeth. (Scene 7) Macbeth has doubts about the murder and declares to Lady Macbeth that it should not go ahead. Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth to go ahead saying they can blame Duncan's attendants.
