Macbeth By: Tucker w. skipper and m. chandler wheeler

Chandler and I have decided to use textual evidence to convey the motif of blood and water in William Shakespeare's, "The Tragedy of Macbeth." We have taken quotes from throughout the play, compiling them to present for you today. Please enjoy as we analyze Shakespeare's bloodiest (and in my opinion most entertaining) work.

"His silver skin laced with his golden blood And his gashed stabs looked like a breach in nature." (2.3.91)

"Go get some water, and wash this filthy witness from your hand." (2.2.)

"A little water clears us of this deed." (2.2.)

"Out, damned spot! Out, I say!—One, two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ’t. Hell is murky!—Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?—Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him." (5.1.31)

"The thane of Fife had a wife. Where is she now?—What, will these hands ne'er be clean?—No more o' that, my lord, no more o' that. You mar all with this starting." (5.1.37-40)

"It is an accustomed action with her to seem as if washing her hands." (5.1.25)

"when we have marred with blood those sleepy two of his own chambers and use their very daggers" (1. 7. 75)

"There's daggers in men's smiles the near in blood. the nearer bloodier." (1.7.75)

"It will have blood, they say. blood will have blood" (3.4.28)

"Is't known known who did this more than bloody deed." (2.4.23)
