Scene 1

Characters: Gentle-Woman, Doctor, Lady Macbeth

Location: Dunsinane. A room in the castle.

Time: Unknown

Events: Gentle-Woman and the doctor hear Lady Macbeth talking in her sleep. This is a worrying situation for the Gentle-woman and the doctor because if Lady Macbeth knew they have heard her talk they would be killed. She than wakes and is continually rubbing her hands like the action of washing her hands. She is not currently speaking in iambic pentameter a signal to her state of mind. Lady Macbeth believes there is blood on her hands and she can’t get it off her hands, racked with the guilt of killing Banquo and others that have been killed in their process of being crowned King and Queen.

Quotes: “Out damned spot! out, I say!” – Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth is referring to the spots of blood she believes she sees on her hands. This is a well known quote because people believed she was talking to her dog. This moment and scene signify the change of Lady Macbeth’s state of mind.

“Unnatural deeds Do breed unnatural troubles: infected minds To their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets.” – Doctor
