The Tragedy of Marybeth By Shakespeare Excerpt from ACT V, SCENE I Doctor You see her eyes are open. Gentlewoman Ay, but their sense are shut. Doctor What is it she does now? Look, how she rubs her hands. Gentlewoman It is an accustom’d action with her, to seem thus washing her hands. I have known her continue in this 15 minutes. LADY MACBETH Yet here’s a spot. Doctor Hark! she speaks. I will set down what comes from her, to satisfy my memory the more strongly. LADY MACBETH Out, damn’d spot! out, I say! One—two—why then, ’tis time to do it. Hell is murky. Fe Fie Fo Fum, my lord, fie, a soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when accompt? Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him. Doctor Do you mark that? LADY MACBETH The thane of Fife had a wife; where is she now? What, will these hands ne’er be clean? I guess I need more soap!

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
