Scotland. So, I’m freaking out, thinking “what is going on?”, but when I go to ask more even though Banquo warned me against it, they disappear. Conan: That’s pretty intense. So they tell you this, and what do you think? Macbeth: Banquo and I awere skeptical, but curious. All of a sudden, I see Ross, one of the King’s aids, and he gives me the title of the Thane of Cawdor and I'm thinking to myself “what if these things are true? What if I could be King of Scotland?”. But whatever, I go to the castle of Duncan, the king, to be congratulated, and whatnot, and I realize that he’s naming his son, Malcolm, as the Prince of Cumberland. All of a sudden, I start thinking that I want to be the King of Scotland. I want to kill Duncan. Conan: And this is where it gets interesting? Macbeth: That’s just the beginning. This is where things start getting good. Okay so Duncan wants to come to Invirness, my castle, to celebrate my new title and the victory over Norway, so I send a letter to my wife, telling her of Duncan, the prophecies, and what I want to do – about my “vaulting ambition”.

The next morning, the bodies are found, and luckily, both Malcolm and Donaldbain flee. So it seems like they are the culprits, which is good for me. Conan: Obviously, you become King after this, unanimously, so clearly, a lot happened between then and now for you to meet your death. A lot of negative stuff, I should say.

    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.
