Synopsis: After a trio of witches prophesy Macbeth will become King of Scotland after being granted Thane of Cawdor. Just then, King Duncan grants Macbeth the title of Thane of Cowdar, making the first part of the prophecy true. Spurred on by this, Lady Macbeth urges Macbeth to murder the king and take his place. Macbeth does so though Duncan’s sons, Princes Malcom and Donalbain, get away.
To curb the third part of the prophecy, which states Banquo’s son will be heir, Macbeth has Banquo killed. Haunted by Banquo’s ghost, Macbeth becomes unhinged, leading the other lords to become suspicious of Macbeth. Prince Malcolm is then able to raise an army and enlist Macduff, whose family has been killed at Macbeth’s orders. Lady Macbeth, haunted by her part in the murder of Duncan, goes mad and dies. Macduff then kills Macbeth, crowning Malcolm king and fulfilling his part of the prophecy.
The Argument: In this story, we see everything a homecoming is not supposed to be. Mabeth comes home to his wife to begin plotting instead of embracing. Duncan is killed in his friend’s home, where he should be his most secure. Macduff’s home is attacked, betraying war ethics. Even Burnham Wood seems to travel unnaturally toward Macbeth’s home. In seeing every way the concept of home is perverted, we see everything a home should be.
