Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow sililoquy

Uploaded by manager05 on Feb 04, 2004

One of the most famous soliloquies in the play Macbeth is the “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow…” soliloquy. The soliloquy takes place after Macbeth knows that Macduff is going to charge his castle. The last prophecy from the witches is no one born of woman will harm Macbeth. At this moment, Macbeth is not worried that Macduff can harm him because Macduff is born of a woman. Macbeth is getting a little worried though because Macduff’s men are approaching Macbeth’s castle.

At this moment, there is a sense of emptiness inside of Macbeth because his wife has died. The next line says, “Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more.” This is showing that real life is like a play. This shows that a person’s life is like an actor’s role in a play because after a person dies, you do not hear from them anymore. This is just like when a play is over, you do not hear from the actor again, because the actor’s job has ended. The last line of the soliloquy is “It is a tale Told by an...
