I need help with Act 5 scene 5. I'm writing an essay on it and well we haven't really covered this act in detail in class so i'm a bit lost.

I need to write about how Macbeth is presented in Act 5 , scene 5. these are the things that i need to sort of explore.

links to what has happened in the play and what has led Macbeth to this point

link to any historical/social context

Shakespeare's message to his audience

#Any guidance or tips would be very helpful.

Thanks

Hiya
I did Macbeth back in Year 10 and frankly I've forgotten everything I did in GCSE now, so I can't give much specific help! However, I remember using sparknotes like there was no tomorrow - they have a 'No Fear Shakespeare' section which transcribes most of Shakespeare's plays (including Macbeth) in modern English alongside the Shakespearean English, and break downs on each of the acts, characters, and social context:

I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but I remember it saving my English Lit coursework, so I hope it helps you!
