Mr. Scofield's mastery of verse is unsurpassed by anyone except Gielgud in the modern theatre, and here his exhausted pauses and savagely renewed attack on the lines turned the language itself into a physical symbol of the moral laws whose weight he was heaving aside". "Getting Across the Inwardness of Macbeth", The Times of London, 30 April 1966.
