Yet do I fear thy nature;It is too full o' th' milk of human kindness To catch the nearest way: thou wouldst be great, Art not without ambition, but without The illness should attend it. What thou wouldst highly, That wouldst thou holily; wouldst not play false, And yet wouldst wrongly win. Thou'ld’st have, great Glamis, That which cries, “Thus thou must do,” if thou have it, And that which rather thou dost fear to do,Than wishest should be undone. Hie thee hither,That I may pour my spirits in thine ear And chastise with the valor of my tongue All that impedes thee from the golden round,Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem To have thee crowned withal.
Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty. Make thick my blood. Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between The effect and it!
M: My dearest love, Duncan comes here tonight. LM: And when goes hence? M: Tomorrow, as he purposes. LM: Oh, never Shall sun that morrow see!
You are too full of the milk of human kindness to strike for at your first opportunity. You want to be powerful,but you are not mean enough to do what that these things call for. The things you want to do, you want to do like a good man. You don’t want to cheat, yet you want what doesn’t belong to you. There’s something you want, but you’re afraid to do what you need to do to get it. You want it to be done for you. Hurry home so I can persuade you and talk you out of whatever’s keeping you from going after the crown. After all, fate and witchcraft both seem to want you to be king.Also, anyone in the audience who had seen Shakespeare's play Hamlet four years before this one would be shockingly aware of the significance of this line, because in that play the good King Claudius is murdered by poison given through the ear. (Page 31)
Come, you spirits that assist murderous thoughts, make me less like a woman and more like a man, and fill me from head to toe with deadly cruelty.Thicken my blood and clog up my veins so I won’t feel remorse, so that no human compassion can stop my evil plan or prevent me from accomplishing it!
When Macbeth comes home,his wife greets him in a way that harks back the words of the Witches; in particular the"all-hail" and "hereafter". The things they say to each other following their initial encounter is fast, pressing and concerning. Shakespeare uses half-line breaks to intensify the drama of the moment, both Macbeth and his wife picking up the rhythm of the other's speech. (Page 35)
