Storyboard Text

  • MacDuff: "I know this is a joyful trouble to you, but yet 'tis one." (II. iii. 41) MacBeth: "The labour we delight in physics pain. This is the door." (II. iii. 42)
  • MacBeth: "Who can be wise, amazed, temperate and furious, Loyal and neutral, in a moment? No man. H'expedition of my violent love Outran the pause, reason. Here lay Duncan his silver skin laced with his golden blood and his gashed stabs looked like a breach in nature, for ruin's wasteful entrance. (II. iii. 101-107)
  • MacDuff: "Well may you see things well done there. Adieu, Lest our old robes sit easier than our new." (II. iv. 38-39) Ross: "Farewell, father." (II. iv. 40) Old Man: "God's benison go with you , and with those that would make good of bad, and friends of foes." (II. iv. 41-42)
  • In this interaction, MacDuff is trying to warn MacBeth and has a helpful tone in his voice however, MacBeth is trying to ignore him and is being a little bossy. The sentence that helped show this was the last one, "This is the door." He obviously needs to be portrayed as a having a slight bit of anger and urgency.
  • Even though MacBeth was the one who murdered Duncan, it appears as though he is having some regrets and is kind of mourning his death. This part has a sad connotation because of his description of Duncan. However, he also does appear to be very upset.
  • The connotation of this conversation between MacDuff, Ross, and the Old Man ends up being positive because they are trying to look at the good side of things. They all have a tone of positivity and hopefulness. It appears that they are also parting ways on friendly terms. By: Grace Owens p. 9
