A Modern Macbeth – Humphrey Carpenter Call me Mac. It was the kind of day when you can do your washing without taking your clothes off. That’s to say, damp. Banquo and I were damp alright. And not just from the rain. We’d been beating the hell out of a bunch of rebels and Norwegians. And I’m not talking about tennis. Scotland’s a big place, and we had most of it to cross to get home. A lot of the scenery looks as though someone backstage is having a joke , and this bit was no exception. They called it a blasted heath. It looked as if whoever drew it had been trying to rub it out ever since. Kind of weird. But not as weird as the three dames we ran into. I mean, I’ve seen all kinds of broads, but this trio made me realise I had to redefine the species. If Helen of Troy had a face that launched a thousand ships, this lot would have sent any fleet into a mud bank. “ Hail!” yelled they youngest out of them, and she wouldn’t see ninety – five again. I looked up into the sky. Well, I thought she was talking about the weather! “ All hail, Macbeth!” screamed the second, who’d passed her sell by date a couple of centuries ago. “Hail, Thane of Cawdor.” “ You got the wrong guys, ladies,” I told them. But they hadn’t finished their little production number.
The style of Humphrey Carpenter’s text Written in 1st person narrative Short simple sentences – sometimes beginning with ‘and’ and ‘but’ Use of American slang Humorous modern comparisons Lots of references to feeling and reactions to the events Not violent Key events in the scene to be written in a blend of Action Description and Dialogue The witches predict Macbeth to be king Macbeth bangs his drum with each prediction and on the final one he cuts the drum skin in the shape of a dagger The witches are about to leave, but Banquo asks about his future The witches Banquo his descendants will be kings The witches disappear Macbeth and Banquo what they have just seen and continue on their journey They see ghostly figures approaching The figures are messengers from King Duncan The messengers relay their message – Macbeth has been given the title of Thane and will be visited by the king Banquo is amazed as the second prophecy has come true! Macbeth thinks events over and what he can do to make the final prophecy come true
