    So my AQA English literature paper is on Monday and I'm having trouble analysing these quotes for Macbeth... any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    "It is too full o'th'milk of human kindness"

    "We will proceed no further in this business"

    I am afraid to think what I have done"

    "What's to be done?"

    "He was a gentleman on whom I built an absolute trust"

    "False face must hide what the false heart doth know"

    "Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck"

    "Turn hellhound, turn"

    I'll do a brief analysis of the quotes in your list I've analysed:

    "It is too full o'th'milk of human kindness"
    In this part of the play Lady Macbeth is see Macbeth as to weak.
    It's portrayed that she is the dominant one in the relationship.
    Context: This was strange as during the Jacobean time period women where meant to be subservient to men, but Lady Macbeth isn't.

    "Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck"
    At this point in the play Macbeth has sent Assassins to kill Banquo and his son without telling Lady Macbeth. When she finds out he calls her a "dearest chuck." A chuck is a child. This is the turning point of the play Macbeth begins to gain power in the relationship and Lady Macbeth loses the power she had at the beginning.
