Act 5 Scene 7.

Characters: Macbeth, Young Siward, Macduff will enter soon after.

Time: What else, the battle!

Location: The plains.

Events: Macbeth speaks of how he can’t be killed by anyone who was born from a women. Then the young Siward decides to attack him, and Macbeth kills him. This only makes Macbeth happier. Macduff searchs for Macbeth. Malcolm and the old Siward enter the castle.

Quote: “They have tied me to a stake: I cannot fly, but, bear-like, I must fight the course.” This is said by Macbeth. What this means is that Macbeth believes the witch’s have doomed him to fall by having him be stuck in Dunsinane(They have tied me to a stake). Because of this, he can’t escape(fly away), so he must fight his enemy himself(bear-like). Perhaps he dislikes the witches for what they did, and has decided to fight his own way out of this problem.
