Macbeth Act II

What does Lady Macbeth mean when she asks the spirits to "unsex" her? She wants to be more like a man so that she can commit the murder of King Duncan; she thought Duncan looked her father and so didn't think she could carry out the murder
What is the reason Macbeth gives as to why he would murder Duncan? So that he, Macbeth, could be king
What are 2 reasons Macbeth gives as to why he should NOT kill Duncan? 1-Duncan is a friend of Macbeth 2-Duncan is a guest in Macbeth's castle
Who does murder Duncan? Macbeth by stabbing him and making a bloody mess while Duncan is sleeping at night
Who is killed by Macbeth after Duncan's murder? the two guards-Lady Macbeth has Macbeth smear blood on the king's guards to make it appear that they murdered the king Duncan
Who is wrongfully suspected of the murder and their father's death? Malcolm and Donalbain, Duncan's sons
What are the hallucinations seen by Macbeth before he kills? floating daggers
What do Macbeth and Lady Macbeth hear after the murders? Knocking over and over-it's actually Macduff knocking to get in to the castle but the king's guards have been killed and no one answers
Why has Macduff come to Macbeth's castle Inverness? To awaken the king [Duncan]
After the bodies of Duncan and the guards are discovered, where do Duncan's sons flee to? Malcolm flees to Scotland & Donalbain flees to Ireland both out of fear for their lives
Give 3 examples of appearances are deceiving-"fair is foul and foul is fair" 1-Lady Macbeth welcomes Duncan to the castle even though they plan to kill him 2-Duncan's sons appear to be the murderers even though they are innocent 3-the guards looked guilty with blood on their hands but it was smeared on by Macbeth
What does Banquo's words mean when he says, "There's daggers in men's smiles" You cannot always trust what people look like and what they say when they are smiling at you
Who said, "A little water clears us of this deed." Lady Macbeth-she is as guilty as Macbeth; but she is wrong because they cannot wash their guilt away and Macbeth knows this
Who said, "Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? No." Macbeth-he has blood on his hands and nothing can wash it off now that the deed is done
