When the three witches want to "meet with Macbeth," do they want to jut to cause trouble or do they have a specific reason? Also, is King Duncan talking about the captain when he says, "What bloody man is that?"
I am glad you asked that Ellie! I myself was wondering the same thing! When the witches want to meet with Macbeth, they almost sound compleatly scared of him! Maybe in awe? Maybe in terror? I am getting the feeling that they are scared of him from that first video that we watched of that scence where the witches are discussing when they will meet again (it was the one with the kind blue tinge - not the modern one and not the one where the bury the arm). More feedback needed?! Block 5 please help?!
At this point in the story, what is the purpose of the three witch sisters?Why do all three of them say, "Hail Macbeth" when they see him?
Good question Jordan! I think that the witches predictions of the future take the roll as their main part in the book. Im a little confused on why they say Hail Macbeth though...
I think that the witches hail him as they are supporters of him and one day he will b King so they kinda want to get on his good side maybe? Also Ellie on your question about "What bloody man is that?" it really means what wounded man is that. (My Macbeth book has Shakespeare and normal English in it so thats what it says.)
Could someone give a brief summary of act 1 scene 4, and list the main events?
What was the part of the prophecy that has already been fulfilled from the intro to scene 5? I think that the Lady Macbeth is rushing into the murder of the King too quickly. Even though the prophecy says he will be king, maybe he isn't supposed to kill the king himself. Something else could happen that gives Macbeth the throne.
Is there any reason not to believe that Macbeth's rebellious activity could possibly linked to Macdonwald in scene 2? Shakespeare making that analogy makes perfect sense. Both of them, Macbeth if he goes through with the plot his wife is installing on him, are rebelling against the throne and wish to bring down King Duncan
What is Banquo's standing on the whole plot to kill King Duncan? Does he support it or disapprove of it like Macbeth?
Isn't it interesting that Macbeth just accepts the three witches' prophecy when they tell him that he is going to become King? At first he is wary, but after that he is only focused on killing Duncan. He didn't really think about what would happen when Duncan was dead.
