Gonzalo de Berceo’s Muse and the Archpriest of Hita’s angel must depart to give way to Jorge Manrique, wounded to death at the door of the castle of Belmonte. Gregorio Hernández’ Muse, and José de Mora’s angel must bow to the passage of de Mena’s duende weeping tears of blood, and Martínez Montañéz’ duende with the head of an Assyrian bull, just as the melancholic Muse of Catalonia, and the damp angel of Galicia, gaze in loving wonder at the duende of Castile, so far from their warm bread and gentle grazing cattle, with its norms of sweeping sky and dry sierra.
Initially, Macbeth and Banquo are loyal soldiers and close friends. The two characters fight side by side in battle and courageously serve King Duncan. They both receive enigmatic prophesies but react differently after listening to the Three Witches. Macbeth immediately allows his ambitious nature to take over, while Banquo is more cautious about the intentions of the witches. Banquo even warns Macbeth that the prophecies may be nefarious and have disastrous results. However, Macbeth does not listen to Banquo and is convinced by his wife to murder King Duncan. Following King Duncan's murder, Macbeth becomes distant from Banquo and begins to view him as a threat to his throne. Macbeth does not want Banquo's sons to inherit his title and begins to plot against his friend. Banquo also becomes aware that Macbeth may have played a significant role in Duncan's death and becomes suspicious of Macbeth. By act 3, Macbeth has commissioned assassins to kill Banquo and his son. Macbeth essentially goes from being close friends with Banquo to being his enemy by act 3.
