Lennox thinks that the drunken guards covered in the King's blood and holding their daggers are a good bet.
Enter Macbeth, the picture of sleepy innocence while he makes small talk with Lennox and sends Macduff to wake Duncan.
So, who murdered the king?
Porter, that it did, sir, i' th' very throat on me; but I requited him for his lie, and, I think, being too strong for him, though he took up my legs sometime, yet I made a shift to cast him.
Get up, get up, and look at this image of doomsday!
Macbeth casually announces that he killed both of the guards in a fit of pious rage, out of his love for the King.
Yep, says Macbeth, it was a pretty rough t not as rough as it was for Duncan, who Macduff has just found murdered.
Ring the alarum bell.Malcolm will go to England and Donalbain to Ireland, making it more difficult to murder them both.Apparently, no one thinks it's weird that the guards went to sleep with the bloody daggers in hand.As from your graves rise up, and walk like sprites, To countenance this horror!Apparently, a porter in hell would be a busy guy since there are so many evil and corrupt people in the e Porter says maybe there's an "equivocator" at the door.Ring the alarm bell.Back, nEXT, cite This Page, site Map, help.
