act one and two of Macbeth
This storyboard does not have a description.
I have spoke. With one that saw him die: who did report. That very frankly he confess'd his treasons,
Malcolm, whom we name hereafter The Prince of Cumberland
"Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee..I go, and it is done. The bell invites me. Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell That summons thee to heaven or to hell."
"I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear a noise?"
"I heard the owl scream and the crickets cry. Did you not speak?"
In this scene Malcom reports a second traitor is killed, he is the previous Thane of Cawdor. Also Malcolm is named the Prince of Cumberland and will be the next king. Which means for Macbeth to be king he will have to kill Duncan and Malcolm. He begins thinking like a traitor.
Here Macbeth is beside himself, he wants to kill Duncan to become the next king, but he fears he will be sent to hell. Because Duncan is king, this means Duncan was "appointed by God" and Macbeth fears he will be sent to hell if he were to kill Duncan.
The owl Represents the nature's reaction to Duncan's death because as previously stated Duncan was "appointed by god" which makes him holy.
