Kingship Vs. Tyranny (Macbeth)
Transcript of Kingship Vs. Tyranny (Macbeth)
, Ashton Denier and
Quote #1 "The King-becomming graces/
[are] justice, verify, temprance, stableness,/
Bounty, perseverance, mercy, [and] lowliness"
-Malcolm(Act 4, Scene 3, line 107)
Macduff meets Malcolm in England,
Malcolm pretends to be a more terrible king than Macbeth.
Malcolm is pretending to be a more terrible king because he wants to prove Macduff's loyalty. We chose this quote because it is basically saying that Malcolm would be a better king than Macbeth
This represents Kingship
Quote #2"Hath Borne his faculties so meek, hath been/ so clear in his office, that his virtues/ will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against/ the deep damnation of his taking-off"
-Macbeth (Act 1, Scene 7)
Macbeth tries to talk himself out of killing Duncan, because Duncan is a good king, and that he is not arrogant or selfish. He thinks he is generous and kind.
This takes place when Macbeth is having dinner with Duncan.
We chose this quote because it means that Macbeth realizes that Duncan is a really good king and feels guilty for taking that away from Scotland. And because Duncan was a good king, it represents Kingship
Quote #3 "The castle of MacDuff I will surprise; seize upon fire; give to the edge o'the sword. His wife, his babies, and all unfortunate souls that trace him in his line"
-Macbeth(Act 4, Scene 1)
Lennox informs Macbeth that MacDuff has fled to England. This quote took place in Dunsinane(Macbeth's Castle)We chose this quote because it was kingship because Macbeth had the power to kill MacDuffs family and anyone who got in his way. But because of the act that Macbeth had committed it was an act of tyranny. So this represents tyranny.
Quote #4 "Is execution done on Cawdor? Are not those in commission yet return'd"
-Duncan(Act 1, Scene 4)
Duncan hears reports of Cawdor's execution from Malcolm, who says Cawdor dies nobly, confessing freely and repenting crimes. This takes place in some random battlefield... somewhere.. This represents kingship because.. that is what a king does. He promoted Macbeth for his heroic act for Scotland.
Quote #5 "All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!"
-Third Witch(Act 1, Scene 3)
The witches proclaim Macbeth as "Thane of Cawdor", "Thane of Glamis" + "King Hereafter!" This takes place soon after the war in the beginning of the play. Banquo and Macbeth had found 3 bearded women(Witches) We chose this quote because it represents kingship because it is showing all the power that Macbeth will soon have in the future.
And that is
