Storyboard Text

  • "Upon the heath..There to meet with Macbeth." (1.1.7-8)
  • "[Macdonwald] showed like a rebel's whore. But all's too weak; For Brave Macbeth [disdained] Fortune." (1.2.17-19)
  • "All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor!" (1.3.52)
  • This scene first introduced us to the Witches who give an eerie vibe to the story line. They announce that they will meet Macbeth at the heath which show us their supernatural abilities and paranormal sight into the future.  
  • "They met me in the day of success, and I have learned by the perfect report they have more in them than mortal knowledge... They all hailed me 'Thane of Cawdor'. " (1.5.1-5)
  • In this scene, the captain, who was injured, reported back to King Duncan about the defeat of Macdonwald and the heroic acts of Macbeth and Banquo. 
  • “When Duncan is asleep, his two chamberlains will I with wine and wassail so convinced that memory, the warder of the brain, shall be a fume, and the receipt of reason a limbeck only. " (1.7.71-77)
  • In this scene, the Witches reveal the prophecy to Macbeth that he will become the Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland. Banquo is also told his children will become kings. Macbeth and Banquo become very curious as they learn this new information. 
  • "Brandished Steel...which smoked in bloody execution." (1.2.19-20)
  • In this scene, Macbeth writes to Lady Macbeth and explains to her that on the day he was victorious in battle, the witches told him that they have supernatural knowledge and greet him as Thane of Cawdor. He explains to her the prophecy deemed to be true since he actually became the Thane to Cawdor which he learned by Angus and Ross,
  • In this scene, Lady Macbeth converses with Macbeth and constructs a plan to kill Duncan by making the night watchmen drunk and putting them to sleep. Then, they will enter his room and kill him while Duncan is sleeping and blame the death from the guilt of the watchmen. 
  • The quote is an image of strength. The quote is saying Macbeth is a strong warrior and killed a lot of people in battle with specific detail about the bloodshed that occurred. This further proves the imagery of violence and blood through Macbeth's actions. This also shows how Macbeth had no mercy while in battle from the notorious descriptions of his weapons. His weapon caused bloody execution which is described to sound unmerciful.
