Macbeth- Silioquy Analization Essay, Research Paper

The opposition of light and dark as symbols for life and

death is the foundation upon which much of Shakesphere?s

Macbeth is built. In Act V Scene V of Macbeth, strong

words covey all of these thoughts to the reader. The tone for

Macbeth?s speech is immediately set after hearing of the

death of Lady Macbeth. Having lost his queen, and seeing

his hopes turn to ashes, the bitter Macbeth now comments

on life in caustic words. ?Tomorrow creeps in this petty

pace.? The basic feel of this brings a negative connotation to

tomorrow. Iit keeps coming slowly and slyly as if to attack.

What exactly does this petty pace refer to? It is the

progression of life, as Macbeth now sees it. This negative

and dark imagery continues to grow because tomorrow is

unrelenting. ?[T]ommorow creeps…To the last syllable of

recorded time.? With these dreary remarks Macbeth

presents his hopeless outlook. He feels the only way to end

the pain of life is through death. ?And all our yesterdays have

lighted fools The way to dusty death.? What can be taken

from this is that from our earliest recollection, we are

constantly being guided forward from yesterday to our

death. If light is life, then the light just leads us to death.

When these lines are read together it enables the reader to

see the despair and agony Macbeth is now suffering. The

past is pushing him ahead and the future is creeping in on

him. He has nowhere in time or space to escape. Death is

the only place left to go. ?Out, out brief candle!? Lady

Macbeth?s candle has burnt out and soon his will also.

Although he talks here about life being light (the candle

flame), light is not desirable to him. He wants to extinguish it.

Macbeth is at the point in his life where he is now trapped

by his fate. The consequences of his actions have caught up

with him. This may very well be why he has such a dreary

outlook on life. Life is associated with light but Macbeth is at

a state where he sees no significance in having lived. ? Life?s

but a walking shadow.? Macbeth is saying here that one?s

life is dark and dreary, and that the light of life only serves to

cast a dark shadow . ? [A] poor player that struts and frets

his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more.? A

person lives his life like a bad actor. He only get one chance

on the stage, and he does a terrible job. ?Struts and Frets his

hour? says that everyone overdramatizes events. Life

according to Macbeth is like this and it ends…. ?Signifying

nothing.? We can easily distinguish between what is life and

what is death in the world of Macbeth through the

interpretation of light/dark imagery. Towards the end of this

play, however, it becomes difficult for me to relate to the

character because he presents ideas in the direct opposite of

what I generally associate with life and death. His feelings at

this dismal point are that life is pain and he presents life with

the imagery of darkness. The general connotation of death is

one of darkness and sorrow. However, he now views it as

an escape or an end to the darkness, possibly light. This

reversal of the light and dark imagery Shakesphere uses

causes me to have to stretch to relate to the character. By

reaching to try and relate to Macbeth?s agony, I see how

Darkness/Evil blinded Macbeth and when he was no longer

blinded, it was to late. The use of light and dark imagery

brings a heavy tone to this play. Although the traditional

values of light for life and dark for death are used by

Macbeth, as he starts to see that neither life nor death hold

any meaning for him, the light becomes darker ( a shadow)

and the opposition becomes weaker. His struggle for life

ends and he starts to see life and death as a single tone of

darkness. We feel his strong emotions, the heaviness of his

heart and his sense of despair as he expresses that

everything has lost it?s light. When the opposition The
