Transcript of Macbeth Themes: Fate and Destiny

Macbeth:
Is this a dagger which I see before me,
The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee.
I have thee not, and 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,
Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?

. . .

A bell rings.

I go, and it is done; the bell invites me.
Hear it not, Duncan; for it is a knell
That summons thee to heaven or to hell.
Thesis
In Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, fate and destiny tempt Macbeth to do unnatural deeds, transforming him into a tragic hero. Shakespeare shows that Macbeth’s ambitions foretell his fate and leads him to do unnatural things
Macbeth: [Aside]
If chance will have me king
Why, chance may crown me
Without my stir
Macbeth:
Rather than so, come, Fate, into the list,
And champion me to the utterance!

Must embrace the fate
Of that dark hour.

First Murderer:
But who did bid thee join with us?

Third Murderer:
Macbeth.

Second Murderer:
He needs not our mistrust, since he delivers
Our offices and what we have to do
To the direction just.

First Murderer:
Then stand with us.
The west yet glimmers with some streaks of day:
Now spurs the lated traveller apace
To gain the timely inn; and near approaches
The subject of our watch.

Third Murderer:
Hark! I hear horses.

BANQUO [Within]:
Give us a light there, ho!

Second Murderer:
Then 'tis he: the rest
That are within the note of expectation 10
Already are i' the court.

First Murderer:
His horses go about.

Third Murderer:
Almost a mile: but he does usually,
So all men do, from hence to the palace gate
Make it their walk.

A light, a light!

O, treachery! Fly, good Fleance, fly, fly, fly!
Thou mayst revenge. O slave!

SPEECH OF CHARACTERS
In this scene, Angus incorporates fate into a speech about Macbeth's royal position.
Angus:
Now does he feel
His secret murders sticking on his hands,
Now minutely revolts upbraid his faith-breach.
Those he commands move only in command,
Nothing in love. Now does he feel his title
Hang loose about him, like a giant's robe
Upon a dwarfish thief.
