Act 3 Scene 2

Charecters:Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Servent

Scene set:A room in Macbeths palace

But let the frame of things disjoint, both the worlds suffer,Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleepIn the affliction of these terrible dreams That shake us nightly. Better be with the dead,Whom we, to gain our peace, have sent to peace,Than on the torture of the mind to lie In restless ecstasy” This quote is explainng Macbeths fear and uncertainanty on what may happen next. He is in constant fear as everthing he does he is always fearfull and it is effecting hugely mentally. He thinks it would be better to be dead with Duncan than to live with the things he has done and says later on that Duncan is even lucky. Because he is living in so much fear he may also be doing ratinol things whitch may not make him a good king and if hes not carefull he may let somthing slip or do somthing to rash. This also shows that Macbeths state of mind continues to delcine and that he may of been better of to not of killed duncan. He also mentions this “, both the worlds suffer,” This is refred to erath and heaven.Back in Act 1 Scene 5 he said this quote “Stars,hide your fires! let not light see my black deep desires“. Stars here is also a refrence to heavean and that he doesnt want heaven or anyone else to see what he has planned. The eath of king Duncan however did indeed reacact to the death of Duncan and now Macbeth see this and is very worried about what the furture may hold. “Oh, full of scorpions is my mind, dear wifethou know’st that Banquo, and his Fleance, lives“. This is a efrence that Macbeth says him self almost admitting that he is going crazy about the events that are occuring. It aslo show thatb even now he is king he still doesnt feel better off.
