Macbeth Act 5
Transcript of Macbeth Act 5
She should have died later / a more fitting time.
There would have been a time for such a word.
There would have been time to talk / to say good-bye.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
A meaningless succession of days.
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
Time is measured in this insignificant way.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
After each day that passes by, we are closer to death.
Out, out, brief candle!
Life on Earth is short.
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more:
Life is like a moving shadow that makes no impression; or a bad actor that walks on stage and makes a great show of performing for a short time but is never hear of again.
it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Life is short and what we make out of it is meaningless.
4.What message is delivered to Macbeth? Birnam Wood is rapidly approaching the castle. 1.What are the attitudes of Siward and Macduff as they prepare to fight? 1.Exlain the line, "Of all men else I have avoided thee!" Macbeth says this line to Macduff, which means he is the only man he avoided since he has already killed his whole family. 2.What surprise does Macbeth learn from Macduff? The surprise we learn from Macduff is that he was delivered by a cesarean section, so he technically was not born from a woman. 3.Does Macbeth give up when he realizes he has been tricked by the witches? Macbeth does not give up when he realizes he has been tricked by the witches. He says, "I will not yield to kiss the ground before young Malcom's feet and to be baited with the rabble's curse. Though Birnam Wood be come to Dunsinane, and thou opposed being of no woman born, yet I will try the last." 4.What "prize" does Macduff bring to Malcolm? Macduff brings Macbeth's head as a "prize" for Malcolm. 5.Who will be King of Scotland? Malcolm They are confidant and will fight until the end. 2.Why is Macbeth unafraid of Young Siward? Macbeth is unafraid of Young Siward because of the witches' predictions. The three witches had told Macbeth to fear only the movement of Birnam Wood to Dunsinane, the man not born of woman, and Macduff. 3.What spurs Macduff on with such determination? Revenge spurs Macduff on with such determination. He wants to get back at Macbeth for killing his entire family. The clothing imagery ("Now does he feel his title/Hang loose about him...") means that Macbeth is realizing his role or responsibilities are too big for him to fill.
