Storyboard Text

  • Blood
  • Thou canst not say I did it; never shake thy gory locks at me!  (3.4. 50-51)
  • Blood
  • My hands are of your colour, but I shame to wear a heart so white (2.2.67-68)
  • Blood
  • Out, damned spot! Out I say! (5.1.31)
  • Macbeth is shown to be suffering from guilt for having his best friend Banquo put to death.  When Macbeth refers to Banquo's gory locks, he is talking about how Banquo's hair is stained with blood from him being stabbed repeatedly in the face by the murderers. At this point Macbeth becomes overwhelmed with regret and guilt from him ordering the death of Banquo.
  • This scene takes place after Lady Macbeth has just gone into Duncan's chamber and wiped his blood onto the sleeping guards. Macbeth is in a shocked less practical state than Lady Macbeth, who is acting calmer and more collected. When Lady Macbeth refers to the colour of both their hands she's talking about the blood of Duncan soaking their palms. 
  • This scene is ironic because Lady Macbeth is the one to tell Macbeth that washing away the blood of Duncan will remove their guilt, however the guilt of the murders during Macbeth's reign is the cause of her insanity. Lady Macbeth visualizes spots of blood on her hands and she is constantly trying to remove them, however the spots are permanently stained in her mind which symbolizes how her guilt will never go away.
