Transcript of Hillucinations
By: Austin sprowls
Macbeth and Banquo speak with the weird sisters for the first time. The sisters tell Macbeth about his prophecy of being king. And they also tell of Banquo’s future
Macbeths ego grows
Macbeth starts to see Banquo’s descendants, which are artificial spirits that the witches made to throw Macbeth off; he sees a number of 3 spirits. The first one saying, beware Macduff And the thane of Fife. The second Apparition looking like a bloody child tells Macbeth that no man born of woman can harm Macbeth; the third Apparition looks like a child with a crown on his head and a tree in his hand, and tells Macbeth that he will never be defeated until Birnum wood marches to fight you at Dunsinane hill.
Macbeth feels unstoppable
When Macbeth gets word that he will be king he falls in love with the idea, so much that he feels he needs to speed up the process. The dagger symbolizes Macbeth’s dark deed; killing the king. Macbeth expresses to us his first launch into crazy as he is reminded of what he had done threw out the play. As a form of guilt Macbeth “washes his hands” free of blood and sin, but cannot seem to forget, he says “is this a dagger I see before me, the handle towards my hand? Come, let me clutch thee, I have not yet I see thee still, art thou not fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight, or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation, preceding from a heat-oppressed brain.” (2.1.33-39) a symbol of wickedness.
During the banquet scene Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost and acts very alarmed and frantic; when he is confronted Lady Macbeth says it’s an illness he has been suffering from since youth. Macbeth shouts out “don’t shake thy gory locks at me” “thou cannot say I hath done it” referring to Banquo’s murder. Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost 2 more times, all bringing out the same reaction in Macbeth. Ultimately, reminding Macbeth that he killed his friend. symbolizing guilt.
Because of speaking with the sisters Macbeth grows hungry for power
Macbeth has to make everything perfect so that he remains king, even if that means murder. He has made himself out to be an almighty god when he is really just a mortal with remorse and guilt.
The witches are angry with Macbeth for killing the king and taking fate into his own hands. Meanwhile Hecat is mad at the witches for telling him his future. So, Hecat gets the three sister to brew up a potion that will make Macbeth see fake ghosts in order to try and get Macbeth to confess
Macbeth went insane because of guilt. He saw things that reminded him of what he had done, and just like Lady Macbeth, His stains wont come off, he cannot sleep because of guilt and his sleep deprived mind surfaces, playing tricks on him.
