Storyboard Text

  • The sergeant reported Macbeth's victory to King Duncan 
  • What bloody man is that? He can report, As seemeth by his plight, of the revolt The newest state.
  • King Duncan hurries the execution of Cowdor 
  • My liege, they are not yet come back. But I have spoke with one that saw him die, who did report that very frankly he confessed his treasons, implored your Highness' pardon, and set forth a deep repentance. 
  • Is execution done on Cawdor? Are not Those in commission yet return'd?
  • King Duncan praises Macbeth with inviting words 
  • Your Highness' part is to receive our duties, and our duties are to your throne and state, children and servants, which do but what they should by doing everthing safe toward your love and honour. 
  • O worthiest cousin! Thou art so far before, that swiftest wing of recompense is slow to overtake thee. Only I have left to say, more is thy due than more than all can pay. 
  • This is the first scene of Duncan in the whole play which presents him as pleasant and trustworthy King. His first line mentions the blood which refers to masculinity because he says that bloodiness servant must have some useful information about the battle. He symbolizes the lightness of the mankind nature and the hierarchy which is significant in this play. Without the hierarchy shown in the story, there will not any tragedy and murder happened. 
  • Macbeth responds positively to King Duncan about what he receives 
  • I have begun to plant thee, and will labor To make thee full of growing. Our eldest, Malcolm, whom we name hereafter The prince of Cumberland; which honor must Not unaccompanied invest him only, But signs of nobleness, like stars, shall shine On all deservers. 
  • Since thane of Cawdor rebels against Duncan, he hurries the execution which is a fine as a king. This indicates that King Duncan is properly using his authority which mean he believes fair is fair and foul is foul. However, his positive personality and behavior will make a great influence on Macbeth's decision making in the future play. 
  • Macbeth reveals his hidden ambition and his feeling
  • The prince of Cumberland! Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires. The eye wink at the hand, yet let that be Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see. 
  • Macbeth comes back to the castle with Banquo, Ross, and Angus. Duncan uses welcoming words to praise Macbeth for the great success in the battle. This scene shows clear power balance between the servant and the king which servants obey King respectively. At this point, their relationship is still healthy and Macbeth truly respects Duncan as a king. 
  • King Duncan plans to go to Macbeth's castle to celebrate Macbeth's achievement 
  • Let’s after him, whose care is gone before to bid us welcome: It is a pe—Let’s after him, whose care is gone before to bid us welcome: It is a peerless kinsman. 
  • Duncan grants the position of thane of Cawdor because of the great success Macbeth achieves in the battle. This is one the prediction that witches have made and told Macbeth in the first encounter. Duncan announced that he gives the name 'Prince of Cumberland' to his son, Malcolm because he trusts Macbeth that he has the ability to support Malcolm and leads the country in a good way. 
  • The rest is labor which is not used for you: I’ll be myself the harbinger and make joyful The hearing of my wife with your approach.
  • Macbeth knows witches' predictions were correct and he reveals his hidden ambition which he wants to be a king of Scotland instead of Duncan. As Duncan introduces Malcolm as Prince of Cumberland, Macbeth recognizes Malcolm as his enemy because he also requires murdering Malcolm in order to be the king. It develops Macbeth to be inhumanely like a demon which is the trigger for murdering King Duncan. 
  • King Duncan still doesn't realize what Macbeth is planning to do and wants to celebrate Macbeth's great work in Macbeth's castle. King Duncan uses "peerless kinsman" to portray Macbeth which is the keyword when Macbeth actually resolves that he is going to kill Duncan. Also, this keyword presents Duncan's nobleness and knowledgeable dignity because he didn't describe Macbeth strightforwardly but instead of that, he uses more complex and decent words. 
  • Yes, indeed. Macbeth is a peerless kinsman.
