Macbeth Review

Lady Macbeth “Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here”
Macbeth “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.”
Lady Macbeth “Out, damned spot; out, I say.”
Macbeth “Out, out, brief candle. Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage.”
Rising Action What part of the plot?: Macbeth and Banquo’s encounter with the witches initiates both conflicts; Lady Macbeth’s speeches goad Macbeth into murdering Duncan and seizing the crown.
Climax What part of the plot?: Macbeth’s murder of Duncan in Act 2 represents the point of no return, after which Macbeth is forced to continue butchering his subjects to avoid the consequences of his crime.
Falling Action What part of the plot?: Macbeth’s increasingly brutal murders (of Duncan’s servants, Banquo, Lady Macduff and her son); Macbeth’s second meeting with the witches; Macbeth’s final confrontation with Macduff and the opposing armies

Three Witches Predict Macbeth’s ambitions will soon come true; later predict his downfall
Duncan I was once a powerful leader whose country was once under attack and was foolish enough to give power to a soldier who became a murderer. Who am I?
Malcom My father was murdered and I went to England to get troops to claim back my throne. Who am I?
Dagger I was used to kill Duncan and the person that used me thought he saw one in front of him in the air when he was deciding whether or not to kill. What am I?
Thane of Cawdor I am dead and was executed for being a traitor to the king. Macbeth had my title and he became what I was. Who am I?
The Crown I am called the ‘Golden Round’ and many fight for me because many want me and the power that I represent. What am I?
Witch I have two sisters and we have the power to see into the future, to change the weather, and to disappear. Who am I?
Banquo I have a son and I am a Scottish nobleman. I fought side by side with my ‘friend’ who then got rid of me. I have been told that my son will be bing. Who am I?
Macduff I am loyal to my King and discovered his body. I went to England and all of my family were killed. I vowed to kill the man that did this and could do so because I was born by caesarean, not ‘naturally born.’ Who am I?
Birnam Wood I am a wood that was mentioned in a prophesy that convinced Macbeth that he would never be defeated. I did move in a way, I was used as camouflage for all the soldiers that were lead by Macduff and Malcom against Macbeth. What am I?
Lady Macbeth “Come, thick night, and pal thee in the dunnest smoke of hell.” Also, “Hell is murky.”
Lady Macbeth “My hands are of your color, but I shame to wear a heart so white.” Also, “The Thane of Fife had a wife. Where is she now?”
Lady Macbeth “A little water clears us of this deed. How easy is it, then!” Also, “What will these hands ne’er be clean?”
Lady Macbeth “I hear a knocking at the south entry. Retire we to our chamber.” Also, “To bed, to bed. There’s a knocking a the gate.”
Lady Macbeth “What’s done is done.” Also, “What’s done cannot be undone.”
