ANGUS ROSS We are sent To give thee from our royal master thanks; Only to herald thee into his sight, Not pay thee. 100 And for an earnest of a greater honour, He bade me, from him, call thee Thane of Cawdor: In which addition, hail most worthy thane, For it is thine. BANQUO What, can the devil speak true? MACBETH The Thane of Cawdor lives. Why do you dress me In borrowed robes? ANGUS 105 Who was the thane, lives yet, But under heavy judgement bears that life Which he deserves to lose. Whether he was combined with those of Norway, Or did line the rebel with hidden help And vantage, or that with both he laboured In his country’s wrack, I know not, But treasons capital, confessed and proved, Have overthrown him. 110 MACBETH [Aside] Glamis, and Thane of Cawdor: The greatest is behind. – Thanks for your pains. – [To Banquo] Do you not hope your children shall be kings, When those that gave the Thane of Cawdor to me Promised no less to them? BANQUO That trusted home, Might yet enkindle you unto the crown, Besides the Thane of Cawdor. But ’tis strange, And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths; Win us with honest trifles, to betray’s In deepest consequence. – Cousins, a word, I pray you. MACBETH 120 125 [Aside] Two truths are told, As happy prologues to the swelling act Of the imperial theme. – I thank you, gentlemen. – This supernatural soliciting Cannot be ill, cannot be good.

I am Thane of Cawdor. If good, why do I yield to that suggestion, Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair And make my seated heart knock at my ribs Against the use of nature? Present fears Are less than horrible imaginings. My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, Shakes so my single state of man that function Is smothered in surmise, and nothing is, But what is not. BANQUO 135 140 Look how our partner’s rapt. MACBETH If chance will have me king, why chance may crown me Without my stir. BANQUO New honours come upon him Like our strange garments, cleave not to their mould, But with the aid of use. MACBETH [Aside] Come what come may, Time and the hour runs through the roughest day. BANQUO Worthy Macbeth, we stay upon your leisure. MACBETH Give me your favour. My dull brain was wrought With things forgotten. Kind gentlemen, your pains Are registered where every day I turn The leaf to read them. Let us toward the king. [To Banquo] Think upon what hath chanced and at more time, The interim having weighed it, let us speak Our free hearts each to other. BANQUO MACBETH 145 150 Very gladly. Till then, enough. – Come, friends. 155 Exeunt Act 3 Scene 1, lines 1 to 73 In this extract, Banquo and Macbeth reflect on their fears about each other, and Macbeth asks Banquo to attend the feast. Enter BANQUO dressed for riding BANQUO Thou hast it now, King, Cawdor, Glamis, all, As the weïrd women promised, and I fear Thou played’st most foully for’t; yet it was said It should not stand in thy posterity, KS3/04/En/Levels 4–7/Macbeth Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 6 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk But that myself should be the root and father Of many kings. If there come truth from them – As upon thee, Macbeth, their speeches shine – Why by the verities on thee made good, May they not be my oracles as well And set me up in hope? But hush, no more. 5 10 Sennet sounded. Enter MACBETH as King, LADY [MACBETH as Queen], LENNOX, ROSS, Lords, and Attendants MACBETH Here’s our chief guest. LADY MACBETH If he had been forgotten, It had been as a gap in our great feast And all thing unbecoming. MACBETH Tonight we hold a solemn supper, sir, And I’ll request your presence. BANQUO Let your highness Command upon me, to the which my duties Are with a most indissoluble tie Forever knit. MACBETH Ride you this afternoon? BANQUO Ay, my good lord. MACBETH We should have else desired your good advice Which still hath been both grave and prosperous In this day’s council: but we’ll take tomorrow. Is’t far you ride? BANQUO As far, my lord, as will fill up the time ’Twixt this and supper. Go not my horse the better, I must become a borrower of the night For a dark hour, or twain. MACBETH Fail not our feast. BANQUO My lord, I will not. MACBETH We hear our bloody cousins are bestowed In England and in Ireland, not confessing Their cruel parricide, filling their hearers With strange invention. But of that tomorrow, When therewithal we shall have cause of state Craving us jointly. Hie you to horse; adieu, Till you return at night.

MACBETH I wish your horses swift and sure of foot, And so I do commend you to their backs. Farewell. 40 Exit Banquo Let every man be master of his time Till seven at night; to make society The sweeter welcome, we will keep ourself Till supper-time alone. While then, God be with you. Exeunt [all but Macbeth and a Servant] Sirrah, a word with you: attend those men Our pleasure? SERVANT They are, my lord, without the palace gate. MACBETH 45 Bring them before us. Exit Servant To be thus is nothing, But to be safely thus. Our fears in Banquo Stick deep, and in his royalty of nature Reigns that which would be feared. ’Tis much he dares, And to that dauntless temper of his mind, He hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour To act in safety. There is none but he, Whose being I do fear; and under him My genius is rebuked, as it is said Mark Antony’s was by Caesar. He chid the sisters When first they put the name of king upon me And bade them speak to him. Then prophet-like, They hailed him father to a line of kings. Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown And put a barren sceptre in my gripe, Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand, No son of mine succeeding. If’t be so, For Banquo’s issue have I filed my mind; For them, the gracious Duncan have I murdered, Put rancours in the vessel of my peace Only for them, and mine eternal jewel Given to the common enemy of man, To make them kings, the seeds of Banquo kings. Rather than so, come Fate into the list, And champion me to th’utterance.
