Macbeth Soliloquy 1 Act 1 Scene 5: The raven himself is hoarse (Spoken by Lady Macbeth) The raven himself is hoarse That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan Under my battlements.

Come thick night and shroud me in the dunnest smoke of hell, so that my sharp knife won't see the wound it makes, nor that the light of heaven peep through the blanket of the dark to cry, 'stop! stop!'

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
