"The raven himself is hoarse That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan Under my battlements"
“Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty! make thick my blood; Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between The effect and it!”
”Come, thick night, And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell, That my keen knife see not the wound it makes, Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark”
The raven is the symbol of death and through her statement she basically states that King Duncan will not be leaving the castle and will most likely be killed. Also, when she says, "Under my battlements," She most likely means that she will be the one to kill Duncan or at least be the one to cause his death.
“O, never Shall sun that morrow see!"
Through this passage, we see Lady Macbeth straight out admitting that she will do anything it takes to get the throne. She asks the spirits to take way her women hood in order for her to become more hardened and accomplish her goal of gaining power for Macbeth. For no other reason than to have it.
“Your face, my thane, is as a book where men May read strange matters. To beguile the time, Look like the time. Bear welcome in your eye, Your hand, your tongue. Look like the' innocent flower,” “But be the serpent under ’t.”
The significance of this saying is she has abandoned all thought and is basically stating her murderous intentions for Duncan. The only possibility in her mind is that for in order to become king she has to be the one to gain power for Macbeth. Its ironic that she is speaking of dark imagery and symbolism when she is actually doing this out of love for Macbeth. But this also means that she is doing this to have even more love for her husband because he will be in a higher state of power. This attracts her to him because she feels the allure of being married to the most powerful man in the kingdom.
“He that’s coming Must be provided for; and you shall put This night’s great business into my dispatch, Which shall to all our nights and days to come Give solely sovereign sway and masterdom.”
In this passage, Lady Macbeth is telling her husband that Duncan won’t make it out alive to see the sun. This passage is significant because Lady Macbeth is almost guaranteeing that Macbeth will be King without the interference of Duncan, even if she has to be the one to kill him.
In this passage Lady Macbeth is trying to tell her husband that his facial expressions will give away their plan, he has to look like what everyone is expecting from him. He needs to look like an innocent flower, in order to trick everybody. This passage is significant because it confirms how crazy and manipulative Lady Macbeth is. She is convincing Macbeth to deceive everyone in order to be king. She is technically the master mind behind Macbeth's schemes.
In this passage, Lady Macbeth is saying that the king is coming so she will handle the Duncan situation and take care of tonight's preparations. This passage is significant because it shows an alternative motive of Lady Macbeth. She has a plan in mind to take care that she wants to carry out of her husband becoming king. We continue to see a deceitful side to Lady Macbeth.
