    you need sophisticated vocabulary and ideas, at least three zooms that will contain what the reader thinks, feels and imagines with the keywords(your zoom)

    do it exactly like the model PEEZL and change the key parts so you know you dont miss anything out

    talk about how his wife had an abnormally valued position in the relationship from the beginning for that time as Macbeth was actually telling her everything about what was going on

    You could talk about how Lady Macbeth is initially the more dominant one in the relationship and that she has power over her husband (e.g. by convincing him to kill Duncan - give quotes to support the idea). Then link this into context: their relationship contrasts with the typical Jacobean relationship, where women were expected to be subservient to their husbands.

    Quotes. I didn't learn that many quotes for Paper 1 in my Lit GCSE, but then I learnt about 300 quotes/points for Paper 2 (photographic memory) and banged out 95/96 in the exam. As long as you have lots of quotes you will have ideas constantly flowing during the exam.

    Edit: in terms of answering your question, Lady Macbeth is presented as being dominant over Macbeth in the play which is contrary to the Jacobean era.

    Like any essay:
    One sentence to engage the examiner.
    Set out your key arguments.
