Storyboard Text

  • Act 1, Scene 3 (pg3) This shows fate vs free will because Macbeth could have chosen to deny the witches prophesies but instead he believed them.
  • All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Glamis! All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Cawdor! All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!
  • Act 2, Scene 2 (pg1) Lady Macbeth says that she would have killed King Duncan herself if he did not look like her father. Proving that she had the free will not to kill the king to enforce Macbeth's fate to be king.
  • Alack, I am afraid they have awaked, And 'tis not done. Th' attempt and not the deed Confounds us. Hark! I laid their daggers read; He could no miss 'em. Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done't.
  • Act 3, Scene 4 (pg7) Macbeth decides to go to the witches again for predictions about his fate. Macbeth did not need to rely on the witches but he chooses to out of free will.
  • I hear it by the way; but I will send. There's not a one of them but in his house I keep a servant fee'd. I will tomorrow and betimes I will to the weird sisters. More shall they speak, for now I am bent to know, By the worst means the worsts. For mine own good, All causes shall give way.
  • Act 4, Scene 1 (Page 5) Macbeth is relieved that he does not need to worry because of the witches predictions of Macduff. But before Macbeth believed everything the witches said but now he denies it. The witches said beware Macduff but Macbeth doesn't beware him and ends up dead.
  • Then live, Macduff. What need I fear of thee? But yet I'll make assurance double sure, And take a bond of fate. Thou shalt not live, That I may tell pale-hearted fear it lies, And sleep in spite of thunder.
  • Act 5, Scene 3 (pg1) Macbeth is told by a servant that there is soldiers coming to the castle. Macbeth chooses to ignore him out of free will. If he listened to the servant Macbeth would have been more prepared for battle. Maybe if he did listen he could have lived and defeated the English army.
  • Go, prick thy face and over-red thy fear, Thou lily-livered boy. What soldiers, path? Death of thy should! Those linen cheeks of thine Are counselors to fear. What soldiers, whey-face?
