This scene focusses on the [[relationship]] between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Shakespeare continues to use [[animal]] imagery when Macbeth says, 'We have [[scorched]] the snake, not killed it' which implies he still believes they are in [[danger]]. Macbeth also admits he is [[envious]] of Duncan's [[peace]] now that he is dead. Lady Macbeth tries to calm him down but Macbeth responds with, 'O full of [[scorpions]] is my mind dear wife.' He tries to keep his [[deadly]] thoughts to himself but hints to Lady Macbeth that further bad [[deeds]] are yet to happen.
