(stage directions). [Enter SEYTON]

Seyton. What is your gracious pleasure?

V,3,2283

Macbeth. What news more?

Seyton. All is confirm'd, my lord, which was reported.

V,3,2286

Macbeth. I'll fight till from my bones my flesh be hack'd.
Give me my armour.

Seyton. 'Tis not needed yet.

V,5,2362

Macbeth. Hang out our banners on the outward walls;
The cry is still 'They come:' our castle's strength
Will laugh a siege to scorn: here let them lie
Till famine and the ague eat them up:
Were they not forced with those that should be ours,
We might have met them dareful, beard to beard,
And beat them backward home.
[A cry of women within]
What is that noise?

Seyton. It is the cry of women, my good lord.

V,5,2373

Macbeth. I have almost forgot the taste of fears;
The time has been, my senses would have cool'd
To hear a night-shriek; and my fell of hair
Would at a dismal treatise rouse and stir
As life were in't: I have supp'd full with horrors;
Direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughts
Cannot once start me.
[Re-enter SEYTON]
Wherefore was that cry?

Seyton. The queen, my lord, is dead.
