English - Act two, scene four

Act two, scene four

Ross and an old man discuss the unnatural events since the King's murder
and it is their words that establish how evil has come to pervade Scotland
since the murder. When Macduff enters and is questioned by them he reports
that it is thought the King's sons had ordered the murder since they had
flown. Ross asks if this means that the throne will go to Macbeth, the most
powerful man in the country and Macduff answers him by saying it had
already done so. Although Macduff is not convinced that Malcom and
Donalbain were responsible for their father's death.
