Macbeth and Morals
Transcript of Macbeth and Morals
Macduff: O, I could play the woman with mine eyes and braggart with my tongue! But, gentle heavens, cut short all intermissions; front to front bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself; within my sword's length set him; if he 'scape heavens forgive him too! (IV iii 266-273) In this quote Macduff is ready and prepared, to fight for the his family and seeks revenge on Macbeth for the crime he has committed in killing the innocent. This quote clearly depicts a lady whom is destrot over the crimes she has witnessed and contributed to the happening as well as having conceit thoughts of how to cleanse herself of the crimes she had committed “Out damn'd spot! Out, I say! One; two: why, then 'tis time to do't. Hell is merky. Fie, my lord,fie, a soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our pow'r to accompt? Yet who would have thougt the old man to have had so much blood in him?”(V i 32-37) This quote shows that Lady Macbeth is so concerned about the crimes committed, that she is sleep walking and confessing the crimes that she participated in as she attempts to wash her hands of the blood. Justice is served when Malcolm becomes king and promises to keep Scotland at peace for many years to come. “We shall not spend a large expense of time before we reckon with your several loves and make us even with you. My thanes and kinsmen, in such an honour named what's more to do, which would be planted newly with the time.” (V ix 32-37) Malcolm promises that there will be no more tyrants, and that Malcolm will re-pay those how suffered and that new beginning will come again. Macbeth was a bloody play that involved a lot of murder and back stabbing. “Macbeth” is a play based on morality as seen in the deaths of Duncan, Banqou, and the Macduff’s. All of these murders led to the downfall and destruction of Macbeth and all the wrong that he had done came back to him and was his demise. In the end justice is served with the death of Macbeth and Malcom being restored as his rightful place as king of Scotland!
