MacBeth is a well respected man before he is seduced by Lady MacBeth and tempted by the witches.

At the beginning of the Act, Scotland is at war and they just won. The captain enter the room to deliver a message to King Duncan. He tells the King that MacBeth has won them the war. He took a man and cut him from the navel up to the chin. They give him the title “brave MacBeth.” Duncan decides that The Thane of Cawdor who was a trader needed to learn a lesson. Duncan also has a surprise in store for MacBeth. In act 1 scene 3, The witches who are dressed as nurses, and has also just killed The Captain are greeted by MacBeth and Banquo. Banquo and MacBeth insult the witches and ask what they’re doing. The witches respond to MacBeth chanting, "All hail, MacBeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Glamis!  All hail, MacBeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor! All hail, MacBeth, that shalt be king hereafter!" They become very bewildered and Banquo wants to know more about his own future. They tell Banquo that he will bear generations of kings however he will not be one. The witches vanished in thin air. Right after the witches left and as they foretold he was crowned Thane of Cawdor. Later in the scene MacBeth has a soliloquy about how he want chance to crown him king. Lady MacBeth receives a note from the messenger while at her chamber. It’s a note about what has happened to MacBeth. Immediately Lady MacBeth wants more, she wants the fame and the riches and she will stop at nothing to get it.

Before Lady MacBeth gets MacBeth to kill King Duncan she seduces him.  She flirts and tells him how he will be a man. She says that he has no balls and if he ever wants to be a man he would do it. She also says that if she made a promise no matter how bad it was she would do it. After constantly fighting Lady MacBeth now gets MacBeth to kill Duncan himself. In Act 2 scene 2, Lady MacBeth says, “ Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done’t. “ This shows that Lady MacBeth is all talk and no action. She talked a lot about wanting to be a man and that MacBeth is less of a man if he doesn’t kill Duncan.  Duncan is now dead and MacBeth comes back to Lady MacBeth with the daggers. MacBeth is remorseful of his actions. Lady MacBeth gets upset of how guilty he is. When she notices the daggers she becomes frustrated with him, so she takes them back and places them on the guards. When she comes back she looks traumatized and has blood all over herself. She tells him that their hands are of the same color but she shame to where a heart so white. MacBeth and Lady MacBeth quickly go back to their chamber and washes their sins away. At the end of the act King Duncan is found dead in his bed and two bloody guards with daggers. MacBeth kills them so they won't have the chance to deny anything. Malcolm and Donalbain flee in fear that Scotland will think they killed their father. MacBeth is now granted the king of Scotland. MacBeth think he’s out of the clear but there are two very wise people who suspect how Duncan died.

At the very beginning of Act 3 Banquo has a soliloquy about his thoughts on Duncan’s death. He says, “Thou hast it now - king, Cawdor, Glamis, all, As the weïrd women (witches) promised; and I fear Thou play’dst most foully for’t. Yet it was said It should not stand in thy posterity, But myself should be the root and father Of many kings.” After his soliloquy MacBeth walks in and invites Banquo to dinner to celebrate his promotion. Banquo accepts but then acts if though he wants to get away from MacBeth as soon as possible. MacBeth fears that he knows what he has done. MacBeth also fears that Banquo will bear generations of kings as the weïrd sisters told him. His fear leads to getting murderers to kill Banquo and Fleance. While on the train back to the chamber the murders succeed in killing Banquo however Fleance escapes. Everyone arrives for dinner and takes their seats. While the table is being set up the murderers arrive to give MacBeth the news. MacBeth has a fit but calms down and gets back to dinner. As he is eating a ghost walks up on the table and heads straight for him. The ghost stops in front of him and points. MacBeth becomes terrified as the ghost resembles Banquo; bloody and beaten to death. Throughout dinner he sees Banquo and Lady MacBeth tells the guest to leave before MacBeth’s guilt becomes more than he can bear.

MacBeth decides to visit the weïrd sister to see his destiny in Act 4 scene 1. The witches once again gives him information to provoke him and make rash decisions.The witches sends Apparitions to answer his concerns. The first Apparition tells him, “MacBeth, MacBeth, MacBeth, beware MacDuff, Beware the Thane of Fife.” MacBeth now has no one to fear but MacDuff. The second Apparition tells him, “MacBeth, MacBeth, MacBeth.... Be bloody, bold, and resolute. Laugh to scorn The pow’r of man, for none of woman born Shall harm MacBeth.” Now MacBeth is pretty sure that he will not fall to anyone. The third Apparition says, “ Be lion-mettled, proud and take no care Who chafes, frets, or where conspirers are. MacBeth shall never vanquished be until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill Shall come against you.” MacBeth is now positive t`hat no man living can kill him. However he is terribly wrong. Thinking he can't be stopped he decides he will act on impulse. He goes after MacDuff not knowing he flead to receive help from England. MacBeth decides to kill MacDuff’s family instead. Meanwhile in England Malcolm and MacDuff gather and army and heads for Scotland.

In Act 5, the army from England has arrived. Lady MacBeth has just been announced dead when the messenger comes in to break some bad news. He says that as he watched Dunsinane hill he noticed the trees of Birnam Wood moving towards the hill. MacBeth was very shocked however he still thought no one could kill him because everyone is born of women. MacBeth later gets into fights with several different soldiers but he kills them. MacDuff has now found his way to MacBeth. MacDuff is ready to blow his brains out but MacBeth says no one born of woman shall harm him. MacDuff responds, “Despair thy charm And let the angel whom thou still hast served Tell thee, MacDuff was from his mother’s womb Untimely ripped.” MacBeth now realizes that he made a huge mistake and regrets what he did. MacDuff tell him that he can live and bow down to King Malcolm or die. MacBeth chooses death and so MacDuff cuts his head off. He’d rather die on his feet than live on his knees.

In conclusion if the witches had not told MacBeth what was set out for him, he most likely would not have done any of those actions that lead up to his death. Lady MacBeth also played a part in these actions. MacBeth wasn't greedy for anything at all when he was announced Thane of Cawdor but his wife seduces and argues with him until he feels that Duncan needs to be dead. Then the witches tell him that that he can not fall to anyone born of women leaving him ruthless. MacBeth was a tragic hero.

MacBeth was an honest man; loyal and respected man

He fought the war for Scotland

Brave MacBeth was his nick name cause he never ran

Unseeming men from navel to throat

Killed that man like he was a roach

Witches told MacBeth he had a lot in store

"All hail, MacBeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Glamis!  

All hail, MacBeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor!

 All hail, MacBeth, that shalt be king hereafter!"

MacBeth only wanted to know more

Banquo ask what are my plans

The witches say in power will be your kins

King Duncan said someone needs to be promoted

MacBeth said I would be truly devoted

Lady MacBeth is overcome with greed

And won’t stop until pleased

Let’s kill the king, he won’t miss his ring

He won’t even miss a thing

You’re not a man

Unless you give no pics

You know what I want

You know what makes me tic

Please I’m asking you just kill this itch

MacBeth says Fine fine just shut up

What’s wrong with power and a few bucks

Shoot maybe even get a pup

“Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done’t.“ 

Lady MacBeth isn't so blunt

All talk, no action

Can,t walk the walk, don't talk the talk

MacBeth went in for the kill

It was a good deal

Duncan is now bloody and bashed

MacBeth will soon find he wrote a check he couldn’t cash

Bloody was his hands

He killed the king of Scotland

He didn’t mean to end his life

He knows it wasn’t right

Now he has to hide his life

He can’t even sleep at night; can’t get it off his mind

He never thought he’d do it

Whatever happened to him

What started out as simple promotion

Turned into a real bloody situation

He’s just thinking of the army that he’s facing

It makes him wanna cry

The apparitions tells him beware MacDuff

You shall not fall unto anyone born of women

He thought life would be rough

You shall die when the forest walks to the hill

He sees the forest moving know the intentions are too kill

Lady MacBeth couldn’t go on so she swallowed a few pills

MacBeth not so ticked

Ready to kill MacDuff until

He says from my mothers womb untimely ripped

They fought the battle of the king

When MacDuff cut the neck

of MacBeth; The fat lady sang

Macbeth and His Lady Macbeth

1.  This project is about the emotionally roller coster of Lady Macbeth and Macbeth ‘s emotions. This is a creative extension of the quotes for the book Macbeth. 

2. I decided to do something simple. Something that would be easily understandable. I used a all white poster board & free hand drew all the pictures such as the crown, the snake and sword, and the bloody hands. 

3. Just making sure everything matched up was difficult because certain quotes were hard to describe through drawling. I had to take my time and not rush. 

4. One thing I am most proud of is the fact that I was able to actually complete this project. I was not confident in this at all nor did I have a solid paln. 

5. One thing I would have done differently is I would have done a board game. I think it would have been a more hands on with the auditions. 

6. I learned that almost everybody had very similar quotes. Also ideas on the structure of there projects. 

7. I learned that I actual enjoy doing hands on creative projects. Yes it’s a lot but, for me it was very relaxing. It was something other than typing on a computer.

Beyoncé- Guernica

Esta obra de arte representa los aspectos positivos y negativos de ser cantante. La puerta de la fotografía representa que muchas oportunidades para ser creativos. Sin embargo el fantasma representa a los numerosos problemas que un cantante puede tener porque a los medios de comunicación. La paloma representa esperanza y fuerza para futuras cantantes que lo que es el mejor. La madre y el niño representa el amor que yo tengo a mi mamá porque ella es una fuerte y independiente.

A Tragic Hero

Macbeth Reflection
  1. In my movie it’s just a summarization of Macbeth growth to from Thane of Glams to a dead king.
  2. The process in creating this piece went into a state of confusing, first I was going to work with a partner at first on a dance piece but then that couldn’t happen because that person was going away for the weekend. So then I decided to do a dance piece by myself but then I couldn’t because there wasn’t enough time for me to put together a combination. There a just decided to create an iMovie showing the progression of Macbeth’s life. 
  3. As previously stated, the process was difficult for me because nothing really worked out with my partner and by myself so I decided to just change it all up by making a movie. 
  4. I’m most proud of the tone of the movie, the tone describe how Macbeth’s life transition to a life full of misery. 
  5. As always with all my projects, I have to plan fully out mainly with collaboration and time periods. 
  6. I didn’t have a chance to view my classmates’ projects so I didn’t really learn anything from them. 
  7. I learned that my abilities to do a creative piece are challenged each time I do this because what I think I’m strong may be the total opposite.

Lady Macbeth had plans that included strength, courage, and force, which then changed in her mental agenda when she had everything she wanted.

This project is Called Lady MacBeth Lp. It consists of five songs written by me; with their own cover art illustrated by me; and original beats made by me, Ameer Holmes. This Lp tells a story, with each song constructed around it's own quote. Each quote is displayed as the song starts, and is said in each song as an incorporated lyric. The illustrations are based around major happenings around the area the quote was chosen from. The first illustration of the first song has to do directly with the quote, and it is Lady MacBeth quite literally accepting the spirits into her. The second picture of the second song has to do with what ends up happening after the conversation, and that is her taking the daggers to place them onto the "sleeping" guards. The third picture has to do with a litteral interpretation of the quote, which is nature's time is running out instead of being eternal. The fourth illustration has to do with lady MacBeth sleepwalking, and trying to get a spot off her hand no longer there. The last illustration too directly incorporates the quote with just "DEAD" written in a simply creep-ish way  to describe Lady Macbeth dying.

Creating this project was fairly fun. Many difficulties were encountered during the makings of this project, such as having to record the music from a ps vita (having a poor stereo quality) onto an I movie and singing over it. Other milestones included making things rhyme, having them match the thesis, the story pattern, and the quote. Also I wasn't very fond of drawing the cover art. The reason I would call doing everything I did for this project easy (making the cover art, instrumentals, having most the lyrics rhyme, filling a three min. song, creating the subjects of the song, having five different song styles sound relative, creating instrumental each for a different style of music, etc.) is that I was able to do it all on sunday (the day before the project was due) and still get to sleep on time.

I am proud of doing a lot in a small amount of time. I am proud for creating all of my lyrics. I am also proud of making cover art for all of my songs when I really didn't need to.  I am proud of creating all of my instrumentals. I am proud of being so talented. Though I did do a bunch of great things I could have done better, and with actual proper studio equipment and a more realistic timeframe for creating an Ep it could have been pro. Doing things like this makes me feel good, this way I can reassure mysel that I am good at something, because I do so many different things that I never really have time to improve my skills and remember that I actually had skills.

Given The chance I would by real music making equipment, learn how to use that and change the quality of music on my project. Given the chance I would also Learn how to use my photoshop 7 and anime studio 6 to make better, digital cover art. Also, given the chance I would learn how to sing as to sound better in each song, but I got that rapping thing down pact right?

I would love to describe my colleagues. I already knew a lot about some of them but for the sake of describing them I'll pretend that I don't. What these people are awesome at include: Claudia is amazing at art; Tjay likes to rap and likes to say "don't forget the a-y"; Ji-won is super great at the piano; Wilson is amazing at nearly everything digital; Ava is an awesome sculpture and creative person; Josh is a good peoples person, awesomely so; Aaron can make a heck of a pie chart, Amelia can pick the crap out of a song to relate it to a book; Michaela can make completely realistic paper mashie sculptures; Brandon can really recycle, and make interesting ideas; Mitchell can really create a cinematic white board movie, Angel makes awesome, deep poetry; Dez can draw like a boss (an art boss); Tobi is like "the" best at programing; Isabella really knows how to make a disney story; Melissa really is an artsy person; and I didn't get to see everyone else's project. 

Well I already know a lot about myself, so I didn't really learn anything new. I did, however have fun doing stuff I am familiar with doing. I never really did a collab of skills before. In projects before I mostly just used one artistic skill, while this time I did about two or three.
song 1

You don’t have the strength to rule

so let me do it for ya

those spirits of pure ridicule 

the opposite will lure ya 

power hungry as I can be

so strong so force so lethally

as deserving as a lady like me

I’ll get what I want illegally 

Lady MacBeth’s who is in charge

The pants are on the wrong legs

Mr. MacBeth won’t live it large

his ambitions... just... not there

So come ye spirits

my breasts are worm

Give me not the fritz

but the capacity for war

We will take whats ours

No faults in my stars

kill duncan and usurp his throne

we will take whats coming to us

lead by death of our sweet music

this is lust no trust no trust fund

my hubby will prove it

for ruling he is the one

he is the one for ruling 

song 2

sweet murder oh sweet murder 

a foolish thought to say a sorry sight

whats done is done 

so sorry hun the death of of kings shall end tonight

Oh duncan’s dead

screwed up your head

man up son 

it’l be alright

three men are gone


clear your head 

and sit up straight 

kill at war 

and live by day 

how is your brain

at constipate

sweet murder oh sweet murder 

a foolish thought to say a sorry sight

whats done is done 

so sorry hun the death of of kings shall end tonight

so paranoid why are you so

a fool you are we can not gooo

you forgot the daggers

not of your haaaaeeert 

do i have to do

everything myself

Song 3


lady macbeth’s whole view has changed 

she’s going mental derange

not yet

but she’s going on that path

she needs to gain Macbeth’s control

her plan is lost but she got her goals

but in them natures not etern.

your enemies won’t live forever

but in them nothing’s lonelier 

than you

thaan you

he’s paranoid 

she’s worried more

oh my fair lady

whose lost it more

but in them natures not etern.

your enemies won’t live forever

but in them nothing’s lonelier 

than you

thaan you

she comforts him

or at least she tries

their torn between deceitful lies

looking at his lonely eyes

its. no. surprise

but in them natures not etern.

your enemies won’t live forever

but in them nothing’s lonelier 

than you

thaan you 

Song 4

Here’s the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh, oh, oh!


till you kill a person 

get those night terrors

got ‘em dealing with you

in those night airs

the screams the blood the cries oh god why

take it all back here

killing duncan was a bad move

i wanted it all 

didn't see i had it when i had him choose

why couldn’t me and him have through 

instead have those days running chasing you

opportunity out of the blue

had you been giving the chance to kill a man to be in power would you

well i didn’t

had my man do it in 5 minutes

felling good it made our lives different

feeling bad dealing with the consequences

tell MacBeth calm down 

an and everybody mind their business

Here’s the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh, oh, oh!


No time here 

no time to bare

doing something devilish just so I can be something to stare at

I cant take anymore

can you bay?

oh wait im not even talking to you

my head is doomsday

its a nuke and its fumes day

on evrey day

with no delay im surprised I havn’t killed myself yet

oho oho 

macbeth needs me?

without me what kind of situation would he be

a nice position 

as needs be

loved by freinds and family

Not Crazy 

no im not crazy

he wouldn’t be crazy had we not... crap

what made oh what made me

this way i never want to awake for another day

because of


till you kill a person 

get those night terrors

got ‘em dealing with you

in those night airs

No time here 

no time to bare

doing something devilish just so I can be something to stare at


till you kill a person 

get those night terrors

got ‘em dealing with you

in those night airs

no time to bare

No time here 

Song 5

oh oh high there

I see you’ve killed yourself aye?

this is the power of fate

She killed herself

she killed herself 

how can you tell

because Malcolm said so

she’s gone through hell

she’s gone through hell

how can you tell

because god only knows

she suffered from a switch-up in her mental agenda

but literally couldn't handle the size that her plans were

drowning in panties

the sorrowful thoughts of sorries 

an amass of horrible stories

she killed herself

She killed herself

she killed herself 

how can you tell

because Malcolm said so

she’s gone through hell

she’s gone through hell

how can you tell

because god only knows
