MACBETH opens after the victory of Macbeth and Banquo, two Scottish generals, over rebels against the crown.Three witches appear and greet Banquo as the ancestor of kings and Macbeth as Thane of Cawdor and “king hereafter.” Emboldened by these prophecies and urged on by his wife, Macbeth murders Duncan, his king and kinsman, while Duncan is a guest in his home.
King Duncan is seen as a great, noble, highly thought of King.
He is in The Monarch which is the highest in the social order.
In Macbeth, Macbeth was known for his relationship with his controlling wife, Lady Macbeth. ” Not all relationships in that era were genuine but Lady Macbeth and Macbeth seemed to have an affectionate/strong relationship as the quote shows.
In the Elizabethan era men were seen as the superior sex and were seen as being brave and noble. This quote is Lady Macbeth questioning Macbeth’s manliness for being hesitant for King Duncan’s murder which would’ve been a massive insult to a man as they were seen as being superior.
The male characters shows us how they were seen as being superior and how important being high up in the social order really is and we can see the contrast in our day age now compared to their era.
If not how can I improve it to be level 4/5 In Act 1:5 Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth and tells him how to commit the regicide, "Look like th' innocent flower but be the serpent under't".
not really familiar with the new gcse marking system (or macbeth for that matter) but would say that a whole paragraph should be a little longer (but if that's just stuck onto the end of a relevant one seems okay) personally, would phrase like this: In Act One when Lady Macbeth is persuading her husband to kill King Duncan "Look like th'innocent flower but be the serpent under't", encouraging him to keep up his prior friendship with Duncan, now as a facade hiding his intentions of regicide.
This quotation is a clear allusion to the Biblical story of the serpent beguiling Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.
“Make all our trumpets speak give them all breath, Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death!
” In this era wars happened quite often because of a disagreement or problems with a country. At the beginning of the play Macbeth is seen a noble, brave, great thane and part of The Nobility.
