Workbook Summary :

This is again a chorus scene. The scene does not further the action of the play, but provides some useful information. The anonymous Lord in the scene represents the scottish nobles. The knowledge of Macbeth’s crimes is spread throughout Scotland.

Condition of Scotland

As the scene opens at Macbeth’s palace at Forres, we find Lennox in conversation with the Lord discussing the latest events in Scotland. Lennox is of the opinion that events seem to have taken place in a strange manner. He speaks cautiously of Macbeth’s actions with a touch of irony. Macbeth exhibited an external show of grief at the death of Duncan, but he did it only after the king was dead. After that, Banquo met with his death, under mysterious circumstances, as he was travelling at night.

Fleance fled from the scene after the murder of his father; he is accused of having killed his father. Malcolm and Donalbain were also charged with the murder of Duncan because they fled after Duncan’s assassination. Lennox says that men should be cautious when they are out at night, as they may fall victims in the hands of evil-doers.

Lord’s Report

Lennox hears from the Lord that Macduff has gone to the English court to request the king of England, on behalf of Malcolm, to support their cause. Macduff did not go to Macbeth’s coronation; and so Macbeth is angry with him. Macbeth has become a tyrant and revolt against him is brewing. His lords have begun to suspect him. The people of Scotland cannot eat and sleep in peace.

Hope of Peace

Lennox prays to the angels to fly to the English Court and deliver Macduff’s message to the holy King. He hopes that with the help of King Edward peace may return to Scotland. However, we see opposition to Macbeth’s tyranny is gaining momentum; and a force being assembled in England.
