_______ AP EL + C (B) Mrs. Shah June 13, 2018 Macbeth Notes Act I Scene 1 The witches meet during a storm after a battle. They plan to meet up with Macbeth LD: Paradox, “ Fair is foul, and foul is fair” Act I Scene 2 The captain tells Duncan about how brave and loyal Macbeth had been during battle. The current Thane of Cawdor was found to be a traitor, and is executed. For his brave deeds, Macbeth is suspected to be the next Thane of Cawdor LD: Simile, “ If I say sooth, I must report they were / As cannons overcharged with double cracks,” Act I Scene 3 The three witches cross paths with Macbeth and Banquo. Macbeth’s prophecy is given to him ( Thane of Glamis, Thane of Cawdor, and King) Banquo’s prophecy is given: his descendants will be king after Macbeth Ross and Angus tell Macbeth that he’s the new Thane of Cawdor Macbeth and Banquo go back and forth in disbelief of the witches’ prophecies LD: Paradox, “ Lesser than Macbeth and greater” Act I Scene 4 Former Thane of Cawdor is executed Duncan announces that his son, Malcolm, will succeed him Macbeth comes to the conclusion that he’ll have to kill Duncan in order to become King LD: Simile, “But signs of nobleness, like stars, shall shine.” Act I Scene 5 Lady Macbeth reads her husband’s letter about the witches’ prophecies and how one of which came true Lady Macbeth believes her husband isn’t ruthless enough to kill Duncan, so she asks for her so to be filled with cruelty- that she may do it herself. Lady Macbeth tells her husband that she’ll take care of any and all preparations for Duncan’s death
