Teacher note: at this point, it is worth discussing our reactions to horoscopes etc. It is fun to buy some fortune cookies and hand them out, read out and discuss how we feel about the predictions.

Macbeths letterLADY MACBETH(reading) They met me in the day of success, and I have learned by the perfectest report they have more in them than mortal knowledge. When I burned in desire to question them further, they made themselves air, into which they vanished. Whiles I stood rapt in the wonder of it came missives from the king, who all-hailed me 'Thane of Cawdor,' by which title, before, these weird sisters saluted me, and referred me to the coming on of time with 'Hail, king that shalt be!' This have I thought good to deliver thee, my dearest partner of greatness, that thou mightst not lose the dues of rejoicing, by being ignorant of what greatness is promised thee. Lay it to thy heart, and farewell.they have more in them than mortal knowledge: does it sound like he believes them? Is frightened of their knowledge?they made themselves.: A frightening sight, and an audience of the day would truly fear witchcraft.the king who hailed: He was made Thane of Cawdor, which the witches said would happen.time with hail, king that shalt be!: they also said he would be King.Lay it to thy heart: keep what I have written a secret. 12Lady Macbeths responseGlamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt beWhat thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature;It is too full o' th' milk of human kindnessTo catch the nearest way: thou wouldst be great,Art not without ambition, but withoutThe illness should attend it. What thou wouldst highly,That wouldst thou holily; wouldst not play false,And yet wouldst wrongly win. Thou'ldst have, great Glamis,That which cries, Thus thou must do, if thou have it,And that which rather thou dost fear to do,Than wishest should be undone. Hie thee hither,That I may pour my spirits in thine earAnd chastise with the valor of my tongueAll that impedes thee from the golden round,Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seemTo have thee crowned withal.shalt be what thou art promised: right from the beginning, she has decided he has been promised this and it will happen. Promised by who?I fear thy nature.: she worries macbeth is too loyal and kind to overthrow the king.wouldst not play false..: you have ambition, but you dont want to gain power by wrongful doings, you are a good man.Hie thee hither.: come on home, so I can talk you into doing what needs to be done. She is manipulative from the start?fate and metaphysical aid doth.: fate and the supernatural seem to want this for you, it is fate for you to be king. 13Exit SERVANTThe raven himself is hoarseThat croaks the fatal entrance of DuncanUnder my battlements. Come, you spiritsThat tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,And fill me from the crown to the toe top-fullOf direst cruelty. Make thick my blood.Stop up the access and passage to remorse,That no compunctious visitings of natureShake my fell purpose, nor keep peace betweenThe effect and it! Come to my womans breasts,And take my milk for gall, you murd'ring ministers,Wherever in your sightless substancesYou wait on natures mischief. Come, thick night,And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the darkTo cry Hold, hold!Fatal: suggesting that Duncan will die tonight.Spirits: calls upon spirits to help her link with the supernatural.Unsex me: make me more like a man and fill me with the ability to be cruel.Language she uses to ask the spirits is negative and murderous. 14 Lady MacbethWhat is your first impression of Lady Macbeth from Act I, scene V?
