The Diary Of Banquo

Extracts from this document...


Act 1 After the victorious battle over the barbaric strangers from overseas, Macbeth and I were walking back to his own home when we crossed the heath. The heath seemed unusually misty and foggy as if a supernatural event was about to occur. I could feel the eerie presence of evil and as though something was watching us. Suddenly from almost within the mist itself three witches appeared and started hailing Macbeth and chanting prophecies.

He greeted Macbeth warmly as the new thane of Cawdor although Macbeth did not look as pleased as the king. I felt slightly left out but I was still included in the celebrations. When we arrived at the castle the king immediately proclaimed his admiration for Macbeth's castle. "This castle hath a pleasant seat; the air nimbly and sweetly recommends itself unto our gentle senses" were his exact words.

  1. Macbeth's diary.

    After he spoke this he stepped forward and wanted to know his destiny (if that was what they spoke of or maybe it is truth.) Then all three witches hailed Banquo but I was put to rest when they said "Hail Banquo lesser than Macbeth" I let out a sigh, "But then greater".

  2. Macbeth Comparison - the contrast between Macbeth and Banquo

    He has vowed to be much more ruthless and tyrannical. Macbeth?s unchecked ambition has turned him into an appalling tyrant who is hated by all; this contrasts with the previous Macbeth who was admired by all in Act 1, scene 2.
