Act 5 Scene 7
Transcript of Act 5 Scene 7
"They have tied me to a stake. I cannot fly,
I must fight the course." (5.7.1-2)
They have tied me to a stake. I cannot fly,
But, bearlike, I must fight the course.
What's he that was born of a women? Such a one am I to fear, or none. (5.7.1-4)
Macduff is looking for Macbeth and wants to kill him because if he doesn't his kids will continue to haunt him forever. He doesn't want anyone else to kill Macbeth before him, and he won't kill anyone else he only wants Macbeth.
Killing of Young Siward
The importance of the killing of Young Siward, is that it shows how desperate Macbeth was to stay alive by killing everyone in his way. All Macbeth can do is await for an "unnaturally" born man to come and fulfill his destiny. It also helps boost Macbeth's confidence in that he is practically invincible.
"Thou wast born of woman.
But swords I smile at, weapons laugh to scorn,
Brandished by man that’s of a woman born." (5.7.12-14)
Macduff comes in looking for Macbeth but cannot find him. He says that he cannot fight an ordinary soldier, only Macbeth.
