the overall theme of “people act on their dreams and ambitions without any sort of morality issues within them.” Somehow this theme says that Macbeth’s murder spree is caused basically by his dreams and aspirations and that it will only be stopped if Macbeth himself perishes, which is a death the audience is awaiting. With Macbeth dead, only then can order be restored to Scotland. Text to Self Text to Text Text to World In act 3, Macbeth starts to lose his conscience because of thirst for power. I can say that I can relate myself to this kind of situation at times because there are times I can be greedy and selfish. Macbeth knows that what he did was wrong but because he continuously does it, it becomes impervious to him. I can be like that sometimes in times I give in to temptation and I know that it’s wrong but I still continue to repeat it because I get forget that it’s wrong. Another text that I can relate act 3 to is Julius Caesar. I can relate the part wherein Brutus betrayed Julius whom he trusted very much. This is the same with Macbeth’s situation in how he killed his closest friend Banquo for the assurance of his reign as king. Macbeth in act 3 really wanted to be king that he did everything just to ensure it. A time that I can relate this to is the regime of Ferdinand Marcos as the president of the Philippines. He was just like Macbeth that he really did everything to stay in power for two decades. Macbeth killed everyone that he thinks and knows that may hinder him to become king. Marcos also made sure that everyone who opposed him will be taken care of so that no one can put him down from his position. Macbeth Banquo Lady Macbeth Hecate The Three Murderers Lord & Lennox After receiving orders from Macbeth, these three kill Banquo. Once she finds out about the witches' plan, she, the goddess of witchcraft, aids them in
working their mischief on Macbeth. In the last scene of Act 3, they suspect that Macbeth is responsible for the deaths of King Duncan and Banquo. In this chapter, he is killed by Macbeth's hired murderers because he is considered a threat to Macbeth's reign. She, who was once a very bold woman, now attempts to convince Macbeth to stop murdering people. He tells his son, as he is dying, to flee and avenge him someday. Banquo Banquo Banquo He later appears as a ghost, although it is not clear whether the ghost is supernatural or a fiction of Macbeth's imagination. She also makes excuses as Macbeth 'becomes crazy' during a banquet,
in the attempt to calm down the spectators. Lady Macbeth Lady Macbeth In this chapter, his obsession to maintain his kingship gets the best of him. It leads him to murdering his friend, Banquo, for he is a threat to Macbeth's throne. Macbeth Macbeth After Banquo's death, he gradually loses sanity, which is the start of his downfall. In this act, Macbeth starts to face the consequences of acting without morals. This chapter begins Macbeth's inevitable decline. “Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown/And put a barren sceptre in my grip,/Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand,” –Macbeth (Act 3 Scene 1 Lines 66-68) Explanation: Macbeth realizes that his reign serves as a mere gateway for Banquo’s sons to become kings in the future, as the witches foretold. This realization leads to his desire to kill Banquo and Fleance. "We have scorched the
snake, not killed it," -Macbeth (Act 3 Scene 2 Line 15) Explanation: Banquo and Fleance are still
threats to Macbeth's throne. Explanation: With the escape of Fleance, Macbeth’s throne is unsecure. Macbeth predicts that, in time, Fleance will avenge his father. “There the grown serpent lies. The worm that’s fled/ Hath nature that in time will venom breed,” -Macbeth (Act 3 Scene 4 Lines 31-32) "Blood will have blood" -Macbeth (Act 3 Scene 4 Line 151) Explanation: After seeing Banquo’s ghost, Macbeth feels as if his life is in danger after committing so much bloodshed. Excerpt of Act 4 Explanation: This scene was chosen because we can see the ghost as a foreshadowing of the consequences Macbeth will face in future chapters for his committed murders. Moreover, the transition from the peak of Macbeth’s glorious rise to power to the beginning of his demise can be clearly seen. THANK
