Essay Question: Why are these lines from Act I important in the plot of the play? Macbeth. [Aside.] Glamis, and Thane of Cawdor: The greatest is behind.Thanks for your pains.Do you not hope your children shall be kings, When those that gave the Thane of Cawdor to me Promis'd no less to them? Banquo. That, trusted home, Might yet enkindle you unto the crown, Besides the Thane of Cawdor. But 'tis strange: And oftentimes to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths; Win us with honest trifles, to betray's In deepest consequence.Essay Response: This is part of the prophecy that the three witches give to Macbeth and Banquo. These lines are part of the scene that starts the whole plot and shows a little foreshadowing.
Essay Question: Using these lines from Act I and Act V, explain why it was important for Shakespeare to introduce the play with the account of Macbeth's performance in the battle against Macdonwald. ACT I, Scene II But all's too weak; For brave Macbeth,well he deserves that name, Disdaining fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smok'd with bloody execution, Like valor's minion,Carv'd out his passage Till he fac'd the slave; And ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him ACT V, Scene VII What's more to do, Which would be planted newly with the time, As calling home our exil'd friends abroad, That fled the snares of watchful tyranny; Producing forth the cruel ministers Of this dead butcher, and his fiend-like queen, Who, as 'tis thought, by self and violent hands Took off her life;Essay Response: It starts out with the report of Macbeth's performance in the battle to show how strong, smart and competent Macbeth is. It shows how different he was at the beginning of the play than the end. It help the audience see how much Macbeth declined throughout the story.
Essay Question: Choose an event from the play. Focus on the purpose it serves in the story. Consider how the story would change if that event was altered. Form your ideas into a paragraph of at least five sentences. Make sure to include supporting evidence from the play. Some events to consider: The weird sisters' predictions for Macbeth and Banquo Macbeth's murder of Banquo The appearance of Banquo's ghost at Macbeth's coronation dinnerEssay Response: The weird sisters' predictions for Macbeth and Banquo: The three weird sisters' predictions made the beginning of the whole play. They got the idea in Macbeth's head that he could be king. They also predict his downfall, but he is too full of himself to even consider his own demise. If the three weird sisters' predictions for Macbeth had not happened, Macbeth would not have killed Banquo or King Duncan or Macduff's family. He would not have gone crazy and gotten beheaded by Macduff. There would have been no story to write or watch.
