AQA Elements of the Gothic (LITB3) - ONLY QUOTES!Watch this thread
So basically I think we should use this formula to organise the thread:
Analysis: (if you feel like giving it)
We should keep it as simple as possible, basically we should dedicate this thread solely to quotes. Personally I have a habit of memorising quotes that probably aren't necessary for the exam.
Please don't let this be a dead thread
Banquo "That look not like th' inhabitants o' th' Earth" (act 1, sc 3)
Banquo "You should be women, and yet your beards forbid me to interpret you are so" (act 1, sc 3)
Quote: "His wedding gift, clasped round my throat. A choker of rubies, two inches wide, like an extraordinarily precious slit throat."
Quote: "This place is too cold for hell. I'll devil-porter it no further" The Porter. The quote shows the Porter referring to Macbeth's Castle as Hell after the death of Duncan. It helps to reinforce the idea of Macbeth being an evil character.
Quote: "Unsex me here."
Analysis: Lady Macbeth has a strong desire to abandon her role as a stereotypical female in the play. This would have been disliked by the Jacobean audiences as it shows Lady Macbeth going directly against the will of God.
"No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness"
Quote: "I ought to be thy Adam; but I am rather the fallen angel" The Monster
Heathcliff says this about Catherine (Earnshaw)
"In every cloud, in every tree...I am surrounded by her image!"
This shows his devotion to her, even after she has passed away. It also links Catherine to the world of nature rather than the world of men.
The creature - ''I will glut the maw of death, until it be satiated with the blood of your remaining friends.''
For some reason this one sticks with me!
