English - Act five, scene three
Act five, scene three
In this scene at Dunsinane Macbeth's courage can be seen, although it is
bound on false beliefs. He orders the death of anyone that shows weakness
or fear of the English. In his soliloquy Macbeth admits that this battle
will either secure his position as king or undo him. The doctor has seen
Lady Macbeth and informs him that her illness is not of the body but of the
mind. She cannot be cured, she must cure herself (by confessing the crimes
she has committed).
