Can someone Mark and Grade a paragraph from my Macbeth Ambition essay?Watch
In the beginning of the play, Shakespeare presents Macbeth as noble and brave, his ambition makes him a dedicated warrior, therefore he is noticed by many and is the epitome of a hero. This is made evident in the quote, “his brandished steel which smoked with bloody execution.” These words literally show that he is so used to slaying the opposing team in battle that it almost becomes a hobby and second nature to Macbeth. The fact that he has adopted this murderous nature when he fights, highlights his dedication not only to king Duncan but to the whole of Scotland, as it is made to seem that people, especially the captain is dependable upon “Brave Macbeth.” The verb “smoked,” gives the implication that his sword is constantly being swung, it is like a recurring motion and so the metal itself begins to wear away. This echoes the determination within Macbeth, he will do anything to protect his nation, showing him to be ambitious. Commonly, “execution,” is associated with criminals and killings, which shows that Macbeth has a sense of immunity in regard to what he can do. He is above the rules and therefore he evades the conceptual faculties of a normal Jacobean soldier. This goes to show the difference in perception of what is good, killing would have been considered noble and right. Macbeths ability to kill is further exploited in the simile “like a lion,” which indicates that he has a primitive nature and so he lacks a moral compass causing him to fight unpredictably. Often “lions,” are seen as leaders which suggests that Macbeth has been born with a gift, something of his nature cannot be lectured It has to run through blood. The graphical imagery and violent tone when he “unseamed him from the nave to the chops,” is regarded with awe, which implores the readers sense that Macbeths ambitious drive to kill is what makes him known and respected. In other words, his reputation is built upon the ambitious aura he emits. Shakespeare has done this to make Macbeth a stand out citizen, his gift on the battle field causes him to rise above many other soldiers hoping to be “thanes,” one day. This goes to show how his ambition can make him recognised in the Elizabethan era for the noble and brave human he is.
