Storyboard Text

  • If it were done, when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done quickly
  • Act 1 Scene 7
  • We'd jump the life to come
  • But in these casese, we still have judgement here
  • This even-handed justice commends th' ingredience of our poison'd chalice to our own lips
  • First, as i am his kinsman and his subject
  • Act 1 Scene 7...
  • He's here in double trust
  • Then, as his host, who should against his murderer shut the door, not bear the knife myself
  • Act 1 Scene 7...
  • We will proceed no further in this business
  • If we should fail?
  • Screw your courage to the sticking and we'll not fail
  • Macbeth talks to himself.  He says that if Duncan is to be murdered then if better be done quickly.  He would give up heaven and spend eternity in hell if he could get away with it but worries about getting caught and that something bad may happen to him in return for doing such a horrible thing. 
  • Act 1 Scene 7...
  • When we have mark'd with blood those sleepy two of his own chamber, and us'd their very daggers, that they have done't?
  • Their drenched natures lies as in a death, what cannot you and I perform upon th'unguarded Duncan?
  • Macbeth thinks of why he shouldn't kill Duncan.  Macbeth is Duncan's subject and he should be loyal to him, he has fought to him.  He also is his host and he should be the one protecting him whilst he stays with him, not be the one to kill him. 
  • I think not of them
  • I dream'd last night of the three weird sisters
  • There's husbandry in heaven, their candles are all out
  • Lady Macbeth comes to tell Macbeth that Duncan wishes to greet him.  Macbeth tells his wife that he no longer wants to murder Duncan.  Lady Macbeth insults Macbeth's manliness, calls him a coward and convinces him to go ahead with the murder. 
  • Act 2 Scene 1
  • Is this a dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand?
  • Macbeth and Lady Macbeth make a plan to murder Duncan.  They will drug Duncan's guard's wine then they will fall asleep and Duncan will be unguarded in his room.  Then Macbeth will kill Duncan with the two guards own daggers and make it look like they killed him. 
  • His spongy offices, who shall bear the guilt of our great quell?
  • Banquo and his son Fleance speak to Macbeth.  Banquo tells Macbeth that he has been dreaming of the three sisters and Macbeth lies to say that he hasn't thought about them at all.  Banquo notices that there are no stars in the sky which links back to Macbeth's earlier 'Stars hide your fires'.  
  • Macbeth starts to see things that aren't there.  He sees a dagger, covered in blood which is pointing in the direction on Duncan's chamber.  When he tries to grab it, it disappears. 
  • Hear not my steps, which way they walk, for fear they very stones prate of my whereabout
  • A dagger of the mind, a false creation?
