descendants are going to be kings for a very long time. But I didn’t think much of it because I was so mentally confused and worried about only myself. In order to make sure Macduff wouldn’t harm me, I even got his entire family murdered. Every last person in his home, I had slaughtered – and the worst part about it was that I didn’t even hesitate. I was so bloodthirsty that I didn’t care who died. So I return to Invirness, continue my tyrannical reign, when I learn that my wife falls ill. Apparently she’s sleepwalking and murmuring to herself, talking about all the bad things we’ve done. She’s on the verge of suicide. Ironically, she went from completely insane and bloodthirsty, to feeling guilty. I was so caught up in my own situation to care. Conan: and your wife dies during the war, right?

Patel Macbeth: Yea, she did. But to tell you the truth, I didn’t care. It was bound to happen. But let’s talk more about this war. So Macduff goes to England to join Malcolm and they raise an English force under Siward to rebel against me. When they get to Dunsinane Hill where my castle resides, they hide in Birnam Woods, and use branches of the trees to camouflage themselves. When I hear of this, I realize that these are the Birnam Woods “marching” that I heard in the prophecy so that’s one prophecy gone. The fight goes on, none of the soldiers on my side retaliate against the English, but it’s okay, because I can’t die. Finally, I come face to face with Macduff and when I tell him that I don’t have to fear him because anyone born from a woman can’t harm me. Conan: So how are you dead? Everyone’s born from a woman. There can’t be a double meaning to that. Macbeth: He was born by C-Section. Conan: SERIOUSLY? Macbeth: I know. So I was like there is no way I'm going to live under the rule of Malcolm, so I fought till the death, and got my head cut off by Macduff, ending my terrible reign over Scotland. Conan: And here you are now. Macbeth: And here I am now. Conan: Well it’s been a pleasure hearing your tragedy. Thank you for being here. Macbeth: Thank you for having me. Conan: come back soon with Lady Macbeth, we’d love to hear her side of the story, too. Macbeth: I’ll be sure to. Conan: Good night.

    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.
