Macbeth 4 + 5 quotes
Terms in this set (28)
Though you untie the winds and let them fight / Against the churches, though the yeasty waves / Confound and swallow navigation up, / Though bladed corn be lodged and trees blown down, / Though castles topple on their warders' heads, / Though palaces and pyramids do slope / Their heads to their foundations, though the treasure Of nature's [germens] tumble / [all together] / Even till destruction sicken, answer me / To what I ask you.
Macbeth, Talking to the witches
The 3 apparitions and the witches' prophecy for each -- know these as well as Macbeth's reaction to each (the chart from class discussion)
armed head (beware macduff), bloody child (no one born of woman shall harm), crowned child (until Birnam wood comes to dunsinane)
Thou art too like the spirit of Banquo. Down! / Thy crown does sear mine eyeballs. And thy hair, / Thou other gold-bound brow, is like the first. / A third is like the former.—Filthy hags, / Why do you show me this?—A fourth? Start, eyes! / What, will the line stretch out to th' crack of doom? / Another yet? A seventh? I'll see no more.
Macbeth, Sees the apparition of the 8 kings, all in the image of banquo
To the castle of Macduff I will surprise, / Seize upon Fife, give to th' edge o' th' sword / His wife, his babes,and all unfortunate souls / That trace him in his line"
Macbeth, Going to Macduff's castle to kill his family
Wisdom? To leave his wife, to leave his babes, / His mansion and his titles in a place / From whence himself does fly? He loves us not; / He wants the natural touch; for the poor wren, / The most diminutive of birds, will fight, / Her young ones in her nest, against the owl. / All is the fear, and nothing is the love, / As little is the wisdom, where the flight / So runs against all reason.
Lady macduff when Ross told her why Macduff left
Whither should I fly? / I have done no harm. But I remember now / I am in this earthly world, where to do harm / Is often laudable, to do good sometime / Accounted dangerous folly. Why then, alas, / Do I put up that womanly defense / To say I have done no harm?
Lady macduff when the messages tells her to flee
When I shall tread upon the tyrant's head / Or wear it on my sword, yet my poor country / Shall have more vices than it had before / More suffer, and more sundry ways than ever, / By him that shall succeed.
Malcom talking to Macduff about invading Scotland; the country would be worse under me than Macbeth
Nay, had I power, I should / Pour the sweet milk of concord into Hell, / Uproar the universal peace, confound / All unity on Earth.
Malcom basically telling Macduff that if he had power he would take world peace to hell
Fit to govern? / No, not to live, --O nation miserable, / With an untitled tyrant bloody-sceptered, When shalt thou see thy wholesome days again, / Since that the truest issue of thy throne / By his own interdiction stands accursed / And does blaspheme his breed?
Macduff is saying Scotland has horrible rulers, Malcolm is so different from his father
Your castle is surprised, your wife and babes / Savagely slaughtered. To relate the manner / Were, on the quarry of these murdered deer, / To add the death of you.
Ross telling Macduff about his family
All my pretty ones? / Did you say 'all'? O hell-kite! All? / What, all my pretty chickens and their dam / At one fell swoop?
Macduff in shock about his family
Dispute it like a man
Malcom's reply to macduff to take it like a man
I shall do so, / But I must also feel it as a man. / I cannot but remember such things were / That were most precious to me. Did heaven look on / And would not take their part? Sinful Macduff, / They were all struck for thee!
Macduffs response: I will grieve it like a man
A great perturbation in nature, to receive at once the / benefit of sleep and do the effects of watching. In this / slumb'ry agitation, besides her walking and other / actual performances, what, at any time, have you heard her say?
the doctor talking to the gentlewoman about lady Macbeth
Out, damned spot, out, I say! One. Two. / Why then, 'tis time to do 't. Hell is murky. Fie, my / lord, fie, a soldier and afeard? What need we fear / who knows it, when none can call our power to / account? Yet who would have thought the old man / to have had so much blood in him?
Lady Macbeth sleep walking
Foul whisp'rings are abroad. Unnatural deeds / Do breed unnatural troubles. Infected minds
To their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets. / More needs she the divine than the physician.
God, God forgive us all. Look after her. / Remove from her the means of all annoyance
And still keep eyes upon her. So, good night. / My mind she has mated, and amazed my sight.
I think but dare not speak.
The doctor talking about lady Macbeth — needs supernatural help
Bring me no more reports. Let them fly all. / Till Birnam Wood remove to Dunsinane / I cannot taint with fear.
Macbeth after he hears of the British coming to take over — not afraid
Let every soldier hew him down a bough / And bear't before him. Thereby shall we shadow / The numbers of our host and make discovery / Err in report of us
Malcom telling his soldiers must carry a bough from the forest (birnam wood to dunsinane)
I have almost forgot the taste of fears / The time has been my senses would have cooled / To hear a night-shriek, and my fell of hair / Would at a dismal treatise [dreadful tale] rouse and stir / As life were in't
Macbeth after hearing a woman shriek
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 died
Of all men else I have avoided thee. / But get thee back. My soul is too much charged / With blood of thine already
Macbeth doesn't want to kill macduff - already killed his family
I bear a charmed life, which must no yield / To one of woman born
Macbeth telling macduff he won't be killed by anyone born of woman
Despair thy charm / And let the angel who thou still hast served / Tell thee Macduff was from his mother's womb / Untimely ripped
Macduff telling Macbeth he was born of c section not from woman
And be these juggling fiends no more believed / That palter with us in a double sense, / That keep the word of promise to our ear / And break it to our hope. I'll not fight with thee
Macbeth talking about how the witches tricked him
Had he his hurts before?
Ay, on the front.
Why then, God's soldier be he! / Had I as many sons as I hairs, / I would not wish them to a fairer death; / And so his knell is knolled
Siward talking about his son who was killed by Macbeth
What's more to do, / Which would be planted newly with the time, / As calling home our exiled friends abroad / That fled the snares of watchful tyranny, / Producing forth the cruel ministers / Of this dead butcher and his fiendlike queen . . . we will perform in measure, time, and place
Malcom is new king- inviting all those who left Scotland to come back
