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 th’access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between Th’ effect and it. Come to my woman’s breasts, And take my milk for gall, you murd’ring ministers, Wherever in your sightless substances You wait on nature’s mischief. Come, thick night, And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell, That my keen knife see not the wound it makes, Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark, To cry ‘Hold, hold!’ lady macbeth
Whence is that knocking?— How is’t with me, when every noise appals me? What hands are here! Ha, they pluck out mine eyes. Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood Clean from my hand?

She should have died hereafter. There would have been a time for such a word. Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time. And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle. Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. macbeth after hearing lady macbeth’s death
macbeth -thane of glamis, then thane of cawdor, then king of scotland-not virtuous-brave and powerful-response to every problem is violence or murder-unable to bear psychological consequences of actions-struggles to master: braver, self doubt, ambition-never contemplates suicide-“valor’s minion” by lady macbeth-develops blood lust after first murder
lady macbeth -ambitious, lusts for power and passion-strong and ruthless in beginning and becomes victim of guilt and madness at end-speech implies her influence over macbeth is sexual-masculine soul in female body-becomes less brutal and more human throughout play-invocation of spirits helps become manlike
3 witches/ weird sisters -understand weakness of people they “help”-bent figures, beards, bizarre potions, prophecies-speak in chymed couplets; comical, male violent, nursery rhymes-most dangerous characters in play-servants of hecate-true identities unclear
hecate -goddess of witchcraft
banquo -thane of scotland-brave, noble, general-prophecy says children will inherit scottish throne-has ambitious thoughts but doesn’t act on them-represents path macbeth doesn’t take (where ambition doesn’t lead to betrayal & murder)-ghost haunts macbeth reminding that he didn’t emulate his reaction to witches’ prophecy-fleance is son

king duncan of scotland -good king, 2 songs – malcolm and donalbain-murdered by macbeth-model of a virtuous, benevolent, farsighted ruler-death symbolizes destruction of an order in scotland (only restored when someone from his line [malcolm] occupies throne
