Immediately, all of the thanes rush to Duncan's chambers, of course finding him dead. But this is not the first hallucination that will appear in the play.

macbeth act 2 summary short

Act 2, Scene 3 In a scene of comic relief, the Porter hears knocking at the gate and imagines that he is the porter at the door to Hell. The murder of Duncan transforms the play; as shall be shown the country will descend into immorality and as a result chaos.

macbeth act 2 scene 3 summary

When Malcolm and Donalbain arrive, Lennox blames the regicide on the guards by pointing to the incriminating bloody evidence. The porter continues to ramble humorously on about the effects of alcohol to them. It is however the changes her character goes through that classifes her as marginalised. Again, for Lady Macbeth, blood is only like paint used to daub the picture of death and can be easily washed off.
