MacBeth Oral - Murderer Monolouge

Extracts from this document...


Macbeth Oral Introduction: The murderer has just returned from a meeting with MacBeth. Macbeth has demanded that he sees him tomorrow to eradicate him since he did not complete his task to kill Fleance and is a witness to Macbeth's immorality. The murderer returns to his small neglected house and is explaining what has just occurred along with his inner sorrows. Murderer: O the look on King Macbeth's face... the fire in his dark and evil eyes... the suffering he suffers only reassures his enraged anger. 'Get thee gone', he commands, 'tomorrow we'll hear ourselves again.' This meeting can only mean one thing... the meeting with the cold steel of his bloody dagger. How was I meant to foretell or control neither the escape of Fleance... nor the sinful role I have been assigned... ...read more.


It comes so clear now... Macbeth is the cause of my worries; he took my land away and destroyed my life. Not Banquo... Banquo is an innocent man and I've killed him! Me! I'm now forever haunted by a guilty conscience... my petty veins poisoned by this sinful act... never will I be forgiven for that deed I have committed... never will be able to sleep freely again... my suffrage will be with me all my life... O what have I done? Macbeth has taken everything away from me... left me with nothing but these filthy rags I wear on my insignificant body. Rumours, rumours, rumours 'tis all it was! How could I, a small farming man, be capable of such treason? How could I scheme against my good land of Scotland? Never in my right mind would I ever betray her nor bow for the scum of the Norwegians. ...read more.


I have nothing! My mind is haunted and my feelings are shamed. MacBeth's abuse of power will soon come to his demise... Macbeth will not let me live as a witness to his evil actions... Though the longer he murders to keep his position the shorter his reign will stand. Ever since MacBeth's has disrupted the cycle of nature by murdering King Duncan his real nature has been exposed along with the loss of his sanity and morality. As tries his hardest to force fate to work to his bidding, he will never know the full extent of success seeing that the man who will triumph in the end is the one who did nothing to change the destiny prescribed for him. This past valiant hero, who captured the traitor MacDonald, after his betrayal of his King, will only fall into the same category waiting to be captured by the next noble hero. ...read more.
