Act five, scene five
_Macbeth's realises that his actions in the end are meaningless_.

a victory. The news of the death of Lady Macbeth appears to have little
effect on her husband, he comments that she should have died later, at a
better time. He briefly ponders the meaning of life.
When he is informed that Birnam Wood appears to be moving towards the
castle Macbeth realises the witches have tricked him and he begins to
worry. He has no alternative but to prepare to fight.
