A Soliloquy from Macbeth for character Fleance

Extracts from this document...


Kevin Nguyen A Soliloquy from Macbeth for character Fleance: Act 3, scene 4 (Fleance enters. He appears distraught and tired. He?s been running for a while) (Fleance has a quick look around) I think here is safe. How could this be happening to us? What has my father ever done wrong to deserve this terrible fate? Who would have ever done such a thing to my father, a brave warrior and a great man who always acted on his beliefs and was honest and loyal to those he held dear. Revenge, how can I take revenge when I don?t know even who my enemy is? (Fleance walks around and thinks for a while then suddenly he realizes something) ...read more.


After King Duncan announced his heir for the throne, father knew Macbeth was improbable, Malcolm isn?t brave or powerful like Macbeth but it?s him who shall be king after all not Macbeth. He was afraid that Macbeth would seek his future actively instead of just waiting for the prophecy to become true even if it?s through wicked speculations and regicide. Father said his suspicion to Macbeth had risen significantly since he had that weird dream during that dreadful night, the night King Duncan got murdered. He said he met the three weird sisters again in his dream and they gave him signs which he didn?t fully understand so he tried to confide it with Macbeth but now he knows that it was the sign of King Duncan?s death and his own. ...read more.


First he killed King Duncan then accused Duncan?s sons so he could become King of Scotland and now he has killed my father and tried to kill me so he can prevent the next prophecy that our family will rise to become Kings. But, he wouldn?t imagine that I, the son of Banquo escaped. If everything those dark creatures said about Macbeth has become true then what they said about me might become true as well. Macbeth, your reign will end one day I shall be King of Scotland and revenge my father?s death. (Fleance quickly looks behind) I have to keep going now before those murderers can catch up. I have to find a place where Macbeth?s men can?t capture me, a place no one knows who I am and hide until the right moment comes. The moment I rise and become King of Scotland. (Fleance walks off the scene) ...read more.
