Professor Regina Buccola of Roosevelt University provides an in-depth summary and analysis of Act 1, Scene 6 of William Shakespeare's play Macbeth.
This brief scene serves the practical purpose of getting Duncan to Macbeth's castle to advance the plot. At the same time, it underscores the heinous nature of Lady Macbeth's plotting. She smiles and provides warm hospitality to a guest in her home, knowing that she will take that hospitality away at knifepoint while the guest sleeps under her roof.
