Macbeth sees a dagger guiding him towards Duncan's chambers. Here we see Macbeth at his most vulnerable. He really does not want to kill the king but feels he must. He is completely intimidated and manipulated by his wife.We can see his stress is having a psychological impact on him. He thinks he sees a bloody dagger and laments that his illusion is coming from his heat-oppressèd brain. Macbeth is clearly trying to find the courage within himself to perform this most unholy deed.
