Act 5 Scene 2

Characters: Menteth, Cathness, Angus, Lenox and soldiers

Location: The country near Dunsinane

Events: The Scottish army opposing Macbeth approaches Dunsinane and the thanes discuss Macbeth’s loss of control.

Quote: ‘…those he commands move only in command, nothing in love: now does he feel his title hang loose about him, like a giant’s robe upon a dwarfish thief.’

Explanation:  The soldiers have realised that Macbeth is extremely corrupt and is not fit to be king. They are only fighting for their country and not for him anymore.
