Storyboard Text

  • "Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee."
  • "I have not, and yet I see thee still. Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible To feeling as to sight, or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation
  • Proceeding from the heat oppressed brain? I see thee yet, in form as palpable As this which now I draw.
  • the invisible dagger which commands Macbeth to murder the king is deceiving his sense of sight
  • "Thou marshal'st me the way that I was going; And such an instrument I was to use. Mine eyes are made the fools o' th' other senses, Or else worth all the rest"
  • the dagger before him is nothing but of his mind's false creation
  • "I see thee still; And on thy blade and dudgeon gouts of blood, Which was not so before. There's no such thing. It is the bloody business which informs."
  • the heat oppressed brain resembles his own mind as he knows its an illusion but his sense of sight deceives him
  • "Thus to mine eyes. Now o'er the one half-world Nature seems dead, and wicked dreams abuse The curtained sleep"
  • His eyes are made fools by his other senses by his brain's way of deception, the eyes are easy to fool while senses such as sound are not so easily deceived
  • he still sees the blood of Duncan on his dagger although this is all in his head. He allows himself to fall victim to what he knows is not real
  • the bloody business causes him to see the dagger, he's extremely hesitant to commit the murder so much so his own senses lie to him. he loses sleep and no longer views life and lively as it once was
