1.11 Macbeth: Observation, Interpretation, and Critique
Transcript of 1.11 Macbeth: Observation, Interpretation, and Critique
In the source text, picture, and the play that was given to me, I found there to be many similarities among them. The first similarity is, Lady Macbeth never told anyone besides Macbeth about the murder of King Duncan. However, while she was sleep walking, she subconsciously confesses. Second, the image and the play showed that Lady Macbeth seemed to be worried, scared and stressed. Third, in the play, Lady Macbeth quoted the source text. In the play, she is in the hallway where there are two people by her. They watch her closely as she scrubs her hands and confesses to the murders. In the picture, Lady Macbeth is walking with a candle, while two people are watching her. Lastly, in all of the pieces, Lady Macbeth is sleep walking, there are two other people in the hallway, and is scared. Based on my evaluations, she is sleepwalking, because she feels guilt, and all of these pieces depict her to be sleepwalking in response to her feeling guilty.

Lady Macbeth sleepwalking

Michael Lynch’s Stage Adaptation
Lady Macbeth is sleep walking and talking about the murder of King Duncan and Banquo. She feels guilt for the muders.
Why does she feel guilty about the murder she convinced her husband to carry out?
Lady Macbeth says, “Will these hands ne’er be clean.” I think she is talking about the murder of Duncan and trying to get the blood off of her hands. Macbeth says, “I’ll tell you again, Banquo’s buried; ‘a cannot come out of his grave.” They are saying that it's impossible for someone dead to come back to life.
I believe Lady Macbeth is feeling so scared and guilty about the murders that she started to sleep walk. Also, she hasn’t told anyone and needs to talk about what happened, so she dreams about telling someone.
I believe Lady Macbeth is afraid of darkness. She has so much guilt from the murders that now everything in this world scares her.
There are two other people in a room, while Lady Macbeth is carrying a candle and sleep walking.
Why is Lady Macbeth carrying a candle in her sleep?
In the image, Lady Macbeth is walking with a candle. Her eyes are open, but they are white.
Lady Macbeth is sleep walking and walks down the stairs. There are two other people who watch her closely.
Is Lady Macbeth talking to herself or someone else?
Lady Macbeth is acting like she is arguing with someone. She is trying to tell them the reasons why she should worry.
I believe Lady Macbeth was dreaming that she was having a conversation with someone, possibly Macbeth. She wanted to converse with someone, because she felt very scared and needed to let someone know, so that she doesn't contain all of her guilt inside.
