Storyboard Text

  • Blood
  • “Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? No: This my hand Will rather the multitudinous seas incarnadine making the green one red”. 2,2,63-65 
  • Blood
  • “here is the smell of blood still; all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. O,O,O” 5,1,44-45
  • Blood
  • “I am in blood Stepp’d in so far that should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o’er”.3,5,136-138
  • Through out Macbeth, blood imagery is a very strong and prevalent theme.  Guilt and the association of having blood soaked hands plague Macbeth and his wife from the beginning of their murder spree. Macbeth is aware of his immense guilt instantaneously knowing that the blood on his hands wont easily wash off.
  • Lady Macbeth also exhibits the blood and guilt imagery, despite her initial reaction as someone who doesn't feel guilty for what she's done or convinced others to do. She sees the blood on her hands, and her husbands as something that can easily be washed off, but later when sleepwalking she reveals just how guilt ridden she really is. The blood is no longer a liquid that can be easily washed off, it is now a stain that cannot be removed no matter how hard she tries, leaving her so  guilt ridden that she takes her own life.
  • After the murder of Banquo takes place, Macbeth’s view on his own evil deeds are revealed to the audience through haunting imagery. He compares the amount of killings to a pool of blood that he is so far in that he simply cannot walk out. This shows how deep Macbeth’s guilt goes and how aware of what he’s done he really is.
