Topic: Macbeth: Act II Scene II
In this scene, Macbeth kills Duncan, but also speaks to Lady Macbeth afterwards. Macbeth is expressing his regret for killing Duncan, whereas Lady Macbeth feels no remorse. This is supported by the line at 3:10, when Macbeth looks at his hands says "This is a sorry sight." At the 3:20 mark, Macbeth says"Methought I heard a voice cry 'sleep no more!'" Do you think Macbeth is actually cursed? Or is the voice crying "sleep no more" just a figment of his imagination? I think Macbeth is creating his own curse, by saying he heard a voice telling him he will sleep no more, Macbeth is making this come true. Eventually Macbeth will begin to lose sleep, because he believes this curse is real.
