Macbeth, Quotes. Scenes I, II, III
1 Witches
1.1 'In thunder, lightning, or in rain?'
1.2 'When the battle's lost and won'

Annotations:

  • Ambiguity - literal battle, or Macbeth's battle? Also demonstrates how we cannot know the Witches' intentions - what could they gain from Macbeth? Are they on anyone's side? What is their purpose; their intent? 
1.3 'There to meet with Macbeth'
1.4 'Graymalkin. / Paddock calls'
1.5 'Fair is foul, and foul is fair; / Hover through the fog and filthy air'

Annotations:

  • Proverbial at the time, but expression probably signifies the moral confusion or inversion which the Witches represent.
1.6 'killing swine'
1.7 'in a sieve I'll thither sail'
1.8 'thrice' 'the charm's wound up'

Annotations:

  • The completion of a charm that does not lead to a prophecy suggests that they may be the perpetrators of Macbeth's misfortune.
2 About Macbeth
2.1 'brave Macbeth'
2.2 'Disdaining fortune'

Annotations:

  • Macbeth inevitably takes matters into his own hands.
2.3 'Like valour's minion carv'd out his passage'

Annotations:

  • Again, he must carve his own passage, so he was an instrument in Duncan's murder out of incapability to be a passive observer of fate. Given a prophecy, must act upon it.
2.4 'unseam'd him from the nave to th' chops'
2.5 'worthy gentleman'
2.6 'As sparrows eagles, or the hare the lion.'
2.7 'Bellona's bridegroom'

Annotations:

  • Old Roman goddess of war.
2.8 'What he hath lost, noble Macbeth hath won.'

Annotations:

  • Echoes Witches' prophecy - Demonstrates invasive nature of witches' prophecy - Rupert Goold production. Both literal battle lost and won, but more specifically Macbeth's battle is lost and won - could be used to support argument that the Witches' are to blame - they have already decided Macbeth's fate.
