“In this scene of Macbeth, the characters arrive at Inverness. King Duncan comments on the sweetness of the air, and Banquo says birds must be nesting in the castle. It’s ironic that King Duncan comments on where he will die is beautiful. Lady Macbeth enters the scene and kindly greets the King and Thanes. Macbeth is no where to be seen, so the soon to be murder weighs more on him than his wife.” – Oliva Vuleta
The beginning of this scene is set outside of Macbeth’s castle when King Duncan and many other men arrive and talk about their admiration for the castle. “This castle hath a pleasant seat; the air nimbly and sweetly recommends itself unto our gentle senses.” – Duncan. Little did they know that the terrible events that would soon happen there.
