Light Vs. Dark By: Tiffany Clark, Scott Hathaway, Caleb Maraman, Barrett Perry
Banquo: "And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, the instruments of darkness tell us truths," (I, III, 135-136) Comment: Sometimes evil people tell others something that is true in order to make them do evil things. Act:1
Macbeth: "Stars, hide your fires; let not light see my black and deep desires.." (I, IV, 57-58) Comment: Macbeth does not want the light, or his goodness, to see that he wants to murder King Duncan in order to receive the crown.
Lady Macbeth: "Come, thick night, and pall the in the dunnest smoke of hell, that my keen knife see not the wound it makes, nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark" (I, V, 57-60) Comment: Lady Macbeth does not want anyone to see what she will do, and she also does not want to see it herself. The darkness, or evil, will cover her deed, and the light, goodness, will not see.
Banquo: "There is husbandry in heaven; / Their candles are all out." (II, I, 6-7) Comment: The moon is down, the night is starless, and there are no streetlights in Macbeth's castle - it is past midnight. This is exactly the kind of night that Macbeth wanted because he thought it might conceal his own guilt from himself and make him brave to kill Duncan. This dark night signals the expiration of Duncan. Act:2
Second Murder: "A light, a light!" (III, III, 20) Comment: At this point of the story, the two murders are waiting in the darkness of light for Banquo and Fleance. Banquo approaches where the murders are with a torch, a flickering light, the life of Banquo. Act:3
Malcolm: "Angels are bright still, though the brightest star fell" (IV, III, 24) Comment: Malcolm compares Macbeth to Lucifer because Macbeth was in very high regard to the king and he murdered King Duncan. Act:4
Gentlewoman: "Why, it stood by her. She has light by / her continually. 'Tis her command. " (V, I, 24-25) Comment: Lady Macbeth is afraid of the dark. She does not want to be bothered by the dead that can appear as ghosts to haunt her in the dark. Act:5
Macbeth: "And all out yeaterdays have lighted fools / The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!" (V, V, 25-26) Comment: Macbeth is sort of losing his mind at this point but what he says is very fundamental to the story. Macbeth says that to live is for fools because life has no meaning. Macbeth wants to die because he has done such evil that that life doesn't suit him anymore. Basically Macbeth wants to die but he can't die because of his charm, Macbeth can't be killed by one born of woman.
Macbeth: "I gin to be aweary of the sun" (V, V, 55) Comment: Macbeth is scared of the sun, Malcolm, but he doesn't want to be frightened of Malcolm so he tells his troops to not be frightened by Malcolm and his army in order to make himself feel more confident when he goes into battle.
