Professor Regina Buccola of Roosevelt University provides an in-depth summary and analysis of Act 5, Scene 6 of William Shakespeare's play Macbeth.
Only three short speeches long, this scene nevertheless brings the play to the brink of war. Malcolm, his uncle Siward, Macduff, and the army approach Dunsinane. Malcolm declares that they are near enough to their target to abandon the branches they have used for camouflage. The men wish one another well for the battle, and the war begins.
Birnam Wood has now come to Dunsinane Hill, and the participants are eager for the fight to begin. Malcolm again displays his leadership and diplomacy as he gives his uncle Siward the honor of leading the battle's first charge.
