LADY MACBETH MACBETH How now, my lord, why do you keep alone Of sorriest fancies your companions making, Using those thoughts which should indeed have died With them they think on? Things without all remedy Should be without regard; what’s done, is done. 10 We have scorched the snake, not killed it; She’ll close, and be herself, whilst our poor malice Remains in danger of her former tooth. But let the frame of things disjoint, both the worlds suffer, Ere we will eat our meal in fear and sleep In 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. Duncan is in his grave. After life’s fitful fever, he sleeps well; Treason has done his worst; nor steel nor poison, Malice domestic, foreign levy, nothing Can touch him further. LADY MACBETH 20 25 Come on. Gentle my lord, Sleek o’er your rugged looks, be bright and jovial Among your guests tonight. MACBETH 15 So shall I, love, And so I pray be you. Let your remembrance Apply to Banquo, present him eminence Both with eye and tongue; unsafe the while, that we Must lave our honours in these flattering streams And make our faces vizards to our hearts, Disguising what they are. LADY MACBETH 30 You must leave this. MACBETH O, full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife! Thou know’st that Banquo and his Fleance lives. LADY MACBETH But in them Nature’s copy’s not eterne. MACBETH 35 There’s comfort yet, they are assailable; Then be thou jocund: ere the bat hath flown His cloistered flight, ere to black Hecate’s summons 40 Turn over KS3/05/En/Levels 4–7/Macbeth Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 3 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums Hath rung night’s yawning peal, there shall be done A deed of dreadful note. LADY MACBETH MACBETH What’s to be done? Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck, Till thou applaud the deed. Come, seeling night, Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day And with thy bloody and invisible hand Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond Which keeps me pale. Light thickens, And the crow makes wing to th’rooky wood; Good things of day begin to droop and drowse, Whiles night’s black agents to their preys do rouse. Thou marvell’st at my words, but hold thee still; Things bad begun, make strong themselves by ill. So prithee, go with me. 45 50 55 Exeunt Act 3 Scene 4, line 83 to the end In this extract, Macbeth is terrified when Banquo’s ghost appears for the second time. He decides to visit the Witches to find out more about his future. LADY MACBETH My worthy lord, Your noble friends do lack you. MACBETH I do forget – Do not muse at me, my most worthy friends. I have a strange infirmity which is nothing To those that know me. Come, love and health to all, Then I’ll sit down. Give me some wine; fill full! 85 Enter GHOST [OF BANQUO] I drink to th’general joy o’th’whole table, And to our dear friend Banquo, whom we miss. Would he were here! To all, and him we thirst, And all to all. LORDS MACBETH 90 Our duties and the pledge. Avaunt and quit my sight! Let the earth hide thee! Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold; Thou hast no speculation in those eyes Which thou dost glare with. KS3/05/En/Levels 4–7/Macbeth Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 4 95 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk LADY MACBETH Think of this, good peers, But as a thing of custom. ’Tis no other, Only it spoils the pleasure of the time. MACBETH What man dare, I dare; Approach thou like the rugged Russian bear, The armed rhinoceros, or th’Hyrcan tiger, Take any shape but that, and my firm nerves Shall never tremble. Or be alive again, And dare me to the desert with thy sword; If trembling I inhabit then, protest me The baby of a girl. Hence horrible shadow, Unreal mock’ry hence. 100 105 [Exit Ghost of Banquo] Why so, being gone, I am a man again. – Pray you, sit still. LADY MACBETH You have displaced the mirth, broke the good meeting With most admired disorder. MACBETH Can such things be, And overcome us like a summer’s cloud, Without our special wonder? You make me strange Even to the disposition that I owe, When now I think you can behold such sights And keep the natural ruby of your cheeks, When mine is blanched with fear. ROSS 110 115 What sights, my lord? LADY MACBETH I pray you speak not; he grows worse and worse. Question enrages him. At once, good night. Stand not upon the order of your going, But go at once. LENNOX Good night, and better health Attend his majesty. LADY MACBETH MACBETH 120 A kind good night to all. Exeunt Lords and Attendants It will have blood they say: blood will have blood. Stones have been known to move and trees to speak. Augures, and understood relations, have By maggot-pies, and choughs, and rooks brought forth The secret’st man of blood. What is the night? 125 Turn over KS3/05/En/Levels 4–7/Macbeth Sourced from SATs-Papers.co.uk 5 http://www.SATs-Papers.co.uk LADY MACBETH Almost at odds with morning, which is which. MACBETH How sayst thou that Macduff denies his person At our great bidding? LADY MACBETH MACBETH Did you send to him, sir? I hear it by the way, but I will send. There’s not a one of them but in his house I keep a servant feed. I will tomorrow – And betimes I will – to the weïrd sisters. More shall they speak. For now I am bent to know By the worst means, the worst; for mine own good, All causes shall give way. I am in blood Stepped in so far that should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o’er. Strange things I have in head that will to hand, Which must be acted ere they may be scanned. LADY MACBETH 135 140 You lack the season of all natures, sleep. MACBETH 130 Come, we’ll to sleep. My strange and self-abuse Is the initiate fear that wants hard use; We are yet but young in deed.
