Sample text

They merely tell Macbeth something that he does not yet know. Thus, the audience remains more skeptical of the prophecy than Macbeth does. Banquo’s response provides us with a textual clue as to Macbeth’s on-stage reaction to this prophecy. He informs us that Macbeth appears fearful, which does not make sense to Banquo. In contrast to Macbeth’s reaction, Banquo boldly asks for his own prophecy, claiming that he does not fear the sisters’ words. The sisters’ second prediction indicates that Banquo will not be king himself, but his offspring will be kings.

Duncan So well thy words become thee as thy wounds; They smack of honour both. Go, get him surgeons. [Exeunt SERGEANT, attended] [Enter ROSS] Who comes here? 40 45 God save the king! Duncan Whence cam’st thou, worthy thane? Ross From Fife, great king; 50 Where the Norweyan banners flout the sky And fan our people cold. Norway himself. With terrible numbers, Assisted by that most disloyal traitor, The Thane of Cawdor, began a dismal conflict; Till that Bellona’s bridegroom, lapp’d in proof, 55 lapp’d in proof: clad in well-tested armor.

85 Macbeth Your children shall be kings. Banquo You shall be king. Macbeth And Thane of Cawdor too; went it not so? Banquo To the self-same tune and words. Who’s here? [Enter ROSS and ANGUS] Ross The king hath happily receiv’d, Macbeth, The news of thy success; and when he reads Thy personal venture in the rebels’ fight, His wonders and his praises do contend Which should be thine or his. Silenc’d with that, In viewing o’er the rest o’ the self-same day, He finds thee in the stout Norweyan ranks, Nothing afeard of what thyself didst make, Strange images of death.
