information. They agree to reveal to him three apparitions: 1. A helmeted head. This apparition warns: Beware Macduff; beware the Thane of Fife. 2. A bloody baby. The second illusion delivers this warning: Macbeth cannot be harmed by any man born of woman. 3. A crowned child holding the branch of a tree. This third apparition promises that Macbeth will not be defeated until Birnam Wood (a forest near his castle) comes to Dunsinane hill (the hill on which Macbeths

castle is built). Act 4, Scene 2 Lady Macduff wonders why her husband has abandoned her and gone so hastily to England. She observes that even when our actions are not traitorous, our fear can make us look like traitors (lines 3-4). Regardless of her husbands true intent, Lady Macduff tells her friend Ross that he has betrayed her and his children and that he may, in fact be a coward.

Lady Macduff and all of her children are brutally murdered in their undefended castle by Macbeths henchmen. Act 4, Scene 3 Macduff meets with Malcolm in England. Malcolm confides in Macduff that he (Malcolm) is lustful and greedy. Malcolm wonders if Macduff could support his right to the throne knowing that his evils would make Macbeth look white as snow and innocent as a lamb. At first, Macduff reassures Malcolm, suggesting that no one can be as evil as Macbeth has been in his short reign.

Soon, though, Macduff admits that not only is Malcolm not fit to be king, hes not fit to live! (103-4) Malcolm confesses that he was only testing Macduffs loyalty. Malcolm is pleased that Macduff has shown himself to be loyal to Scotland, NOT JUST to whoever happens to be on Scotlands throne. 1. Witch 2 says, "By the pricking of my thumb, Something wicked

brows of grace, Yet grace must still look so." What does that mean? The devil was, of course, at one time the brightest angel. The point is that things aren't what they seem. One can't judge the book by its cover, so-tospeak. Study Guide Act

5. Alcove (n) a recess or partially enclosed area connected to a larger room 6. Misapprehend (v) to misinterpret; to understand incorrectly Act 5, Scene 1 Lady Macbeths maid has summoned a doctor to try to cure Lady Macbeth of sleepwalking. The doctor observes that Lady Macbeths seeming wakefulness but absolute unawareness of anything happening around her is quite unnatural (Remember: Macbeth

has murdered sleep II, ii, 35). Lady Macbeth mentions the murders of Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff. All the while she scrubs her hands, trying to wash away imaginary blood that her guilt causes her to see. Out, damned spot!( V, i, 27). This reminds us of what Macbeth says in Act II (Can all great Neptunes ocean wash [Duncans blood] from my hands? (ii, 58-9). Lady Macbeth replies (ironically) that A little water will clear us of this [bloody] deed. (II, ii, 66-7).

Act 5, Scene 2 English soldiers along with Malcolm and Macduff have assembled near Macbeths castle. Cool lines: Now [Macbeth] feels his hidden murders sticking to his hands. (Angus: V, ii, 17-8). Sticking like drying blood. His followers act only because they are commanded to do so, not out of love. (Angus: V, ii, 18-9). Now he feels his title of King draped loosely round him, hanging like a giants robe upon a dwarf-like thief.

(Angus: V, ii, 19-20). Act 5, Scene 3 Macbeths men are abandoning him in droves. Those who remain are terrified of the obviously superior English force gathering near the castle. Despite his professed confidence in the safety guaranteed by the witches prophesies, Macbeth seems to be giving-way to panic and fear.

Act 5, Scene 4 Malcolm orders the soldiers in the woods to each hew down a branch and carry it before him, thus to conceal the size of our force and trick Macbeths reconnaissance into making a false report of us. Birnam Wood will appear to be coming to Dunsinane. Act 5, Scene 5 Macbeth hears the news that his wife is dead.

Suicide? His reaction: She should have died later. Now is inconvenient. (V, v, 17). Act 5, Scene 6 The English forces under Malcolm, Macduff, and Siward capture Macbeths castle. Act 5, Scene 7

Macbeth kills Young Siward (Youre obviously a man that was born of woman!) [V, vii, 12]. Outside, the English forces report that Macbeths few remaining men do not even fight. Several have come face-to-face with Malcolm himself and done nothing. Act 5, Scene 8 Macduff confronts Macbeth (Turn, hell-hound, turn! [V, viii, 3]). Macduff reveals to Macbeth the news that he (Macduff) was from his mothers womb untimely

rippd. (V, viii, 15-6). Macduff kills Macbeth. Siward ironically observes that they have been very successful with almost no deaths. Malcolm immediately assumes his rightful place as King. The following information, from, explains how the sons of Banquo went on to be kings of Scotland (as foretold by the witches). The Stewart family records its traditional descent from Banquo, Thane of

Lochaber, who makes an appearance as a character in William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Historically, however, the family appears to be descended from an ancient family who were senechals of Dol in Brittany. They acquired lands in England after the Norman conquest and moved to Scotland when David I ascended to the throne of Scotland. The family were granted extensive estates in Renfrewshire and East Lothian and the office of High Steward was made hereditary in the family. It is through marriage with the daughter of Robert the Bruce that we can begin to trace the descent of the Royal House of Stewart. The royal line of male Stewarts continued uninterrupted until the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots. As a family, the Royal Stewarts held the throne of Scotland, and later that of

England, in the direct line until the death of Queen Anne in 1714. In fact, the present Royal family still has Stewart blood links. 1. What do the doctor and gentlewoman see Lady Macbeth doing? What do they decide to do? She is sleepwalking and talking about the murders. The doctor decides his best move is to not

mention that he heard anything, and he tells the woman to keep an eye on Lady Macbeth. Study Guide Act V 2. What does Macbeth want the doctor to do for his wife? He wants the doctor to

ease her suffering, to give her something to make her oblivious to her weighty troubles. Study Guide Act V 3. What trick does Malcolm use to hide the number of men in his army?

He has his men cut off tree branches and use them as camouflage. Study Guide Act V 4. Malcolm says, "And none serve with him but constrained things Whose hearts are absent, too." What does that mean? Macbeth's armies are there in

body only, not in spirit, and there should not be any serious opposition. Study Guide Act V 5. What is Macbeth's reaction to Lady Macbeth's death? He takes it very calmly, saying she would have

died sooner or later, anyway. Study Guide Act V 6. What is Macbeth's reaction to the news that Birnam Wood is moving? "Arm, arm, and out!" He's going to fight to the bitter end and take down the

whole universe with him, if necessary. Study Guide Act V 7. Who first fights Macbeth? What happens? Young Siward fights Macbeth and is slain. Study Guide Act V

8. Macbeth says to Macduff, "But get thee back, my soul is too much charged With blood of thine already." To what is he referring? Macbeth doesn't want to fight Macduff; he has already killed Macduff's family.

Study Guide Act V 9. When does Macbeth know he's in trouble? He knows this is his end when Macduff tells him he was taken from his mother's womb instead of being "born of woman."

Study Guide Act V 10. How does Macbeth die? Macduff fights him and beheads him. Study Guide Act V 11. Who will be King of Scotland?

Malcolm will be king. Study Guide Act V 2/7/2014 Macbeth Movie day
