Act 5 scene 2.

Characters: Menteth, Cathness, Angus, Lenox, and soldiers.

Location: Country near Dunsinane.

Time: The battle for Scotland.

Events: 4 soldiers talk of Macbeth and what he has caused. They also talk of how he is mad, and that he is evil. And while they talk, they have problems, and say how they ony continue to fight because they are loyal to Scotland.

Quote:” Some says he’s mad: others, that lesser hate him, Do call it valiant fury; but for certain, He cannot buckle his dis-tempered cause within the belt of rule.” This is said by Cathness, while he talks to his fellow solders. When he says this, he is meaning that they know Macbeth is mad/completely insane. Then he continue’s to say that those who don’t hate him as much(which imply’s that they all hate Macbeth to some degree), just call his madness ‘valiant fury’. Which he then adds how this view simply can not work with in the the legal rules of the country, which pretty much says that this soldier disagrees with him. All in all, Cathness: believes hes insane, hates him, and also disagrees with his king, Macbeth.
