This storyboard does not have a description.
"I know I am Thane of Glamis, but how of Cawdor?" (1.3.71-72)
"Look like th' innocent flower, But be the serpent under't" (1.5.65-66)
"To know my deed, 'twere best not know myself" (2.2.77)
When Macbeth and Banquo first hear the witches' prophecies, Macbeth is startled and is fearful as to how he can become King. He asks for more information which shows he is intrigued about his future, yet aggressive when he doesn't get the information that he wants. Macbeth says, "Tell me more," "I know I am Thane of Glamis/But how of Cawdor?'
When Macbeth and Lady Macbeth were talking, she was able to manipulate him into killing Duncan by seducing him, yet also calling him a gutless coward. This proves how Macbeth is easily persuaded & not very arrogant. Macbeth knows that killing his cousin isn't good, but Lady Macbeth convinces him that that is what the prophecy wants him to do.
After murdering the king, Macbeth isn't so fond of himself. He regrets killing King Duncan and doesn't know who he is anymore. When he hears everyone yelling "God bless us," "Sleep no more," and "Amen," he knew he shouldn't be blessed because he did a bad thing.
