SCENE III.-Dunsinane. A Room in the Castle.
Macb. Bring me no more reports; let them fly all;
I cannot taint with fear. Then fly, false thanes,
Shall never sagg with doubt, nor shake with fear.
Death of thy soul! those linen cheeks of thine
Are counsellors to fear. What soldiers, whey-face?
Macb. Take thy face hence.-Seyton !—I am sick at heart. When I behold-Seyton, I say!-This push
Will cheer me ever, or disseat me now.
What news more
Sey. What is your gracious pleasure?
Sey. All is confirm'd, my lord, which was reported.
"Tis not needed yet.
Macb. I'll put it on.
Send out more horses, skirr the country round;
Hang those that talk of fear.-Give me mine armor,——
How does your patient, doctor?
Not so sick, my lo
Cure her of that:
As she is troubled with thick-coming fancies,
Canst thou not minister to a mind diseas'd;
Raze out the written troubles of the brain;
Must minister to himself.
Therein the patient
Macb. Throw physic to the dogs, I'll none of it.—
And purge it to a sound and pristine health,
That should applaud again.—
What rhubarb, senna, or what purgative drug,
Would scour these English hence? Hearest thou of them î
Makes us hear something.
Enter, with drums and colors, MALCOLM, old SIWARD, and his Son, MACDUFF, MENTETH, CATHNESS, ANGUS, LENOX, Rosse, ana Soldiers, marching.
Mal. Cousins, I hope, the days are near at hand,
That chambers will be safe.
We doubt it nothing.
The wood of Birnam.
Siw. What wood is this before us?
Mal. Let every soldier hew him down a bough,
It shall be done.
Siw. We learn no other, but the confident tyrant Keeps still in Dunsinane, and will endure
Our setting down before't.
"Tis his main hope:
For where there is advantage to be given,
Both more and less have given him the revolt;
Let our just censures
The time approaches, That will with due decison make us know What we shall say we have, and what we owe Thoughts speculative their unsure hopes relate⚫ But certain issue strokes must arbitrate: Towards which, advance the war.
Within the Castle.
Enter, with drums and colors, MACBETH, SEYTON, and Soldiers.
Macb. Hang out our banners on the outward walls;
Were they not forc'd with those that should be ours,
[A cry witnin, of romen
Sey. It is the cry of women, my good lord.
As life were in't: I have supp'd full with horrors;
Macb. She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.-
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Enter a Messenger.
Thou com'st to use thy tongue; thy story quickly,
I shall report that which I say I saw,
But know not how to do it.
Well, say, sir.
Mess. As I did stand my watch upon the hill, I look'd toward Birnam, and anon, methought, The wood began to move.
Macb. Liar, and slave!
Mess. Let me endure your wrath, if 't be not so; Within this three mile may you see it coming;
I say, a moving grove.
I pull in resolution; and begin
To doubt the equivocation of the fiend,
That lies like truth: Fear not, till Birnam wood
Comes toward Dunsinane.-Arm, arm, and out !—
I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.-
Macbeth leads his followers to the Battle, which terminates in the defeat of the Usurper who is Lain by Macduff, and Malcolm is declared King of Scotland.
