Transcript of The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step on which i must fal
Meaning of quote
"The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires; Let not see my black and deep desires. The wink at the eye, yet let that be which The eye fears, when it is done, to see."
Major part of the play?
I don't think that this quote is a major point of the play because there are bigger parts. I think it was just important in that act because it was when he first started thinking of killing King Duncan to become king.

Act 1 Scene 3
Three witches - predict Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and then to become king. - predict Banquo's sons will be kings

Relating to this quote
Who said this?
Macbeth is a Scottish general and Thane of Glamis
What happened after?
Now that Malcolm is Prince of Cumberland I must step down from becoming king or somehow rise above but he is in the way of that. Stars hide your light so no one can see my dark desires. Don't let my eyes see what i might do
Act 1 Scene 4
Cawdor is being executed for treason
Malcom is named Prince of Cumberland
Macbeth is named Thane of Cawdor
Act 1 Scene 5
Lady Macbeth receives a letter from Macbeth explaining that the three witches said that he would become Thane of Cawdor and then later become king.
Messenger tells her the king is coming tonight
Macbeth is the main character of the play
Significance of quote
I think that this quote is important because it sets off the rest of the play and leaves the audience/ readers in question if he is actually going to do something to become king or let it happen on its own.
