cochran macbeth speeches

lady macbeth: glamis thou art, and cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promised. yet do i fear thy nature; it is too full o’ th’ milk of human kindness to cath the nearest way. thou wouldst be great, art no without ambition, but without the illness should attend it. what thou wouldst highly, that wouldst thou holily; wouldst not play false and yet wouldst wrongly win. thou’d’st have, great glamis, that which cries “thus thou must do, ” if thou have it, and that which rather thou dost fear to do, than whishest should be undone. Hie the hither, that i may pour my spirits in thine ear and chastise with the valor of my tongue all that impedes me from the golden round, which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem to have thee crowned withal. (enter messenger) what is your tidings?….messenger: the king comes here tonight……….summarize this lady macbeth just read macbeths letter about the witches prophesy, and she thinks he will become king too, but she fears that he will not have enough cruelty to fullfill it. she calls on evil spirits to help him and persuade him to kill the king which is coming to their house tonight.
first witch: why, how now, hecate? you look angerly……Hecate: have I not reason, beldams as you are? saucy and overbold, how did you dare to trade and traffic with macbeth in riddles and affairs of death, and I, the mistress of your charms, the close contriver of all harms, was never called to bear my part or show the glory of they art? and which is worse, all you have done hath been for a wayward son, spiteful and wrathful, who, as others do, loves for his own ends, not for you. but make amends now. get you gone, and at the pit of Acheron meet me i’ th’ morning. tither he will come to know his destiny. your vessels and your spells provide, your charms and everything beside. i am for th’ air. this night i’ll spend unto a dismal and a fatal end. great business must be wrought ere noon. upon the corner of the moon there hangs a vap’rous drop profound. i’ll catch it ere it come to ground, and that, distilled my magic sleights, shall rise such artificial sprites as by the strength of their illusion shall draw him onto his confusion. he shall spurn fate, scorn death, and bear his hopes ‘bove wisdom, grace, and fear. and you all know, security is mortals’ chiefest enemy…………summarize the witches meet with hecate and ask why she is mad. she explains that she is mad that they left her out of the tricking of macbeth and for what because he doesnt care about them only his own fate, so then she knows macbeth will look for the witches tomorow at the delta of the acheron (a river) and she is planning on coming this time to confuse macbeth and make him feel secure about his future and show off thier art.
malcolm: macduff, this noble passion, child of integrity, hath from my soul wiped the black scruples, reconciled my thoughts to thy good truth and honor. Devilish macbeth by many of thes trains hath sought to win me into his power, and modest wisdom plucks me from overcredulous haste. but god above deal between thee and me, for even now i put myself to they direction and unspeak mine ownd detraction, here abjure the taints of blaims i laid upon myself for stangers to my nature. i am yet unknown to woman, never was forsworn, scarcely have coveted what was mine own, at no time broke my faith, would not betray the devil to his fellow, and delight no less in truth than life. my first false speaking was this upon myself. what i am truly is thine and my poor countrys to command–whither indeed, before [thy here-approach] old siward with ten thousand warlike men, already at a point, was setting forth. now well together, and the chance of goodness be like our warranted quarrel. why are you silent?….summarize malcolm is trying to explain to macduff that he was testing him to see if he was loyal becuase he could not trust anyone and that he lied about all those bad virtues that were really macbeths and says that he has the good virtues that a king needs to have.
seyton: the queen, my lord, is dead. Macbeth: she should have died hereafter. there would have been a time for such word. tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time, and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle! lifes but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing….summarize. seyton tells macbeth that the queen is dead (suicide) and it seems to not even fade him. he just says that she would have died sometime anyway and then goes on to talk about the frivolity of life and how he wants his “candle” (life) to “go out” (die) and that we wait for our chance to get on the stage and once we do we are gone and it means nothing.
what do shadow and player mean actor (insignifcant shadow)
dusty death reference to “we are dust and unto dust you shall return”…….good imagery
she should have died hereafter she would have died eventually
tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in the petty pace from day to day, ….. behind macbeths terrible reflections of life show images of life and images of light
modest wisdom plucks me wise moderation pulls me back
unspeak mine own detraction take back my own explanation of myself
unkown to woman, never was foresworn im a virgin, and have never broken my promises
we’ll together, and the chance of goodness be like our warranted quarrel. we will travel together, and our chance of success be as good as our cause is just
