Interview with Macbeth

1) If the witches have never given you the prophecy of being King, would you have still killed Duncan?

The thought of being king has never come across my mind before I met the witches so if thou has’t given me thy prophecy, would a good owner kill a loyal dog? Though, Duncan referred to me as a friend! “There's no art/
To find the mind's construction in the face:/
He was a gentleman on whom I built/
An absolute trust.” (1.4.2) and I felt the same way back, I had a lot of respect for him because we’ve been acquaintances for a long time. If thy has’t told me that the Thane of Cawdor lives, I would’t have savaged the man of power. As well, when “Let not light see my black and deep desires” (1.4.53), I said this after King Duncan honored me and I began to reconsider my desires to murder him.

Thou sisters of gull have told me that I shall be Thane of Cawdor and then I’ll be crowned King, but I could’t justify killing Duncan for this to happen, I shunt dare! Lady Macbeth, thy vulgar, disrespectful gale, called me a coward if thust hast not kill. Hath mouthed “And live like a coward in thine own steem/ Letting I dare not wait upon I would/ Like the poor cat I’th’adage?” (1.7.X) Here, she explains how I would not...
