Guilt and Gore a final time
The Infamous Sleepwalking Scene
Act V; Scene 1; Lines 39-44
! out, I say!--One: two: why,
then, 'tis time to do't.--Hell is murky!--Fie, my
lord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need we
fear who knows it, when none can call our power to
account?--Yet who would have thought the old man
to have had so much
Act II; Scene 1; Lines 44-47
Mine eyes are made the fools o' the other senses,
Or else worth all the rest; I see thee still,
And on thy blade and dudgeon
gouts of blood
Which was not so before.
Act II; Scene 3; Lines 59-62
With all great Neptune's ocean wash this
Clean from my hand? No; this my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
Making the green one red.
Act II; Scene 3; Lines 97-99
You are, and do not know't:
The spring, the head, the
fountain of your blood
Is stopp'd; the very source of it is stopp'd.

still: all the
perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little
hand. Oh, oh, oh!
Ambition and subsequent Death of Banquo
Bloody Man's Account
**Lady Macbeth is telling herself that she must rid herself of womanly thoughts, and for one night, not have any remorse for Duncan.
Act I; Scene 5; Lines 39-47
The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! make
thick my blood;
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between
The effect and it!
Let the blood bath begin...
** Macbeth is looking at the dagger apparition, when blood suddenly appears on it.

**Macbeth is delivering the news of Duncan’s death to Donalbain.
The Final Battle

Turn, hell-hound, turn!
Of all men else I have avoided thee:
But get thee back; my soul is too much charged
of thine already.

Before the murder
Revenge of the Dead:
Before the Murder of Banquo
**In this speech, Macbeth is talking with Lady Macbeth, attempting to shield her from the murder of Banquo which is about to happen.
Act III; Scene 2; Lines 45-56
Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck,
Till thou applaud the deed. Come, seeling night,
Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day;
And with thy
and invisible hand
Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond
Which keeps me pale! Light thickens; and the crow
Makes wing to the rooky wood:
Good things of day begin to droop and drowse;
While night's black agents to their preys do rouse.
Thou marvell'st at my words: but hold thee still;
Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill.
So, prithee, go with me.
**This quote comes directly after Macbeth is hallucinating about the ghost of Banquo and saying that awful murders have been committed.
Act III, Scene IV; Lines 74 - 82
hath been shed ere now, i' the olden time,
Ere humane statute
the gentle weal;
Ay, and since too, murders have been perform'd
Too terrible for the ear: the times have been,
That, when the brains were out, the man would die,
And there an end; but now they rise again,
With twenty mortal murders on their crowns,
And push us from our stools: this is more strange
Than such a murder is.
Revenge of the Dead
**This quote comes after Lady Macbeth dismisses the court because of Macbeth’s hallucinations about Banquo's ghost. Macbeth says that guilty men are brought to justice.

Act IV; Scene 3; Lines 38-41

I speak not as in absolute fear of you.
think our country sinks beneath the yoke;
It weeps, it bleeds; and each new day a gash
Is added to her wounds.
Act IV; Scene 3; Lines 58-61
I grant him bloody,
Luxurious, avaricious, false, deceitful,
Sudden, malicious, smacking of every sin
That has a name; but there's no bottom, none,
In my voluptuousness.
Act IV; Scene 3; Lines 31-37
Bleed, bleed, poor country!
Great tyranny, lay thou thy basis sure,
For goodness dare not check thee; wear thou thy wrongs,
The title is affeer'd! Fare thee well, lord:
I would not be the villain that thou think'st
For the whole space that's in the tyrant's grasp,
And the rich East to boot.

Act 1, Scene 2; Line 20
But all’s too weak;
For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name),
Disdaining Fortune, with his brandished steel,
Which smoked with bloody execution,
Like valour's minion carved out his passage
Till he faced the slave;
Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him,
Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps,
And fix'd his head upon our battlements.
The captain, the bloody man, recounts the events of what happens on the battlefield
This is part of the long monologue which Macbeth gives to show that he is debating whether or not to kill Duncan.

But in these cases
We still have judgement here, that we but teach
Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return
To plague th' inventor.

It will have

Stones have been known to move and trees to speak;
Augurs and understood relations have
By magot-pies and choughs and rooks brought forth
The secret'st man of
