19. What is ironic about Banquo’s comments about
Macbeth’s castle? (Lines 3-6)
This guest of summer,
The temple-haunting martlet, does approve
By his loved mansionry that the heaven’s breath
Smells wooingly here
He is describing Macbeth’s castle as beautiful,
when it really is the home of a murderous couple.
Act I Scene 7 Pages 333-335
20. What do subjects owe their king? What do
hosts owe their guests? (Lines 12-16)

a host it should be Macbeth’s job to protect

21. How does this image contribute to the
atmosphere? (Lines 56-58)
I would while it was smiling in my face;
Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums,
And dashed the brains out,
It darkens the atmosphere, and shows the
couple’s plans to be horrible and unnatural.

22. How does Shakespeare show a change in Macbeth’s
character at this point in the play? (Lines 81-82)

Lady Macbeth Soliloquy

• 2:20-4:15
Lady Macbeth’s Soliloquy (Mr. Baun
Version)
The evil bird’s croaking is the perfect sound for
Duncan’s deadly visit to our castle.
I call on you, dark spirits; murderous spirits. I no
longer want to be sweet and nice like some ladies.
I want these spirits to make me cruel and ruthless
from my head down to my toes.
Thicken my blood so I am not able to feel bad
about the murder I am involved in. I want no
natural feelings of pity to distract me from the foul
deeds I must do.
Lady Macbeth’s Soliloquy (Mr. Baun
Version)
Come to my breast, and replace the milk with envy
and hatred. They will fuel my murderous plot.
Make me like other cold-blooded killers, who
secretly serve evil forces.
Please give me the darkest night, and the thickest,
blackest smoke from the pits of hell. I hope the
night covers me from the sins I am committing. I
do not want to see the stab wound, and I do not
want thoughts of God to distract me from what I
must do.
