Messenger in the household of Macduff

[This is an annotated list of all appearances and all mentions of this Messenger.]

Rushing in, a messenger tries to get Lady Macduff to run for her life, saying "If you will take a homely man's advice, / Be not found here; hence, with your little ones" (4.2.69). This man is not an official messenger. No one has sent him. He's just a "homely man," an ordinary guy who somehow found out that Lady Macduff and her children were in danger. He is himself very frightened, and with good reason. Moments after he runs out, Macbeth's hired killers come for Lady Macduff and her children.      [Detailed Scene Summary]
