My teacher predicts that either Banquo or the Supernatural may come up. I'm alright with The Supernatural but does anyone have any good quotes for Banquo?

You could talk about how he was unfazed by the witches prophecies, and maybe use the quote 'rapt with'al' which is what he said to Macbeth.

"(stage directions). [Enter BANQUO, and FLEANCE with a torch]"

You could possibly talk about Banquo being accompanied by a torch via stage directions and talk about what the torch represents.

AS longs a the extract is good you could just say about Banquo character through the extract and say this is juxtaposed to Macbeth but if I was to get Bangui quotes look up Act 3 scene 1 where Macbeth has soliloquy on killing Banquo before he does it

quotes/ideas for Banquo:

1. "instruments of darkness" - he recognises that the witches are not to be trusted, unlike Macbeth who fully believes in their prophecies
2. He has "a wisdom" which suggests that Banquo thinks before he acts and does what is right
3. He is a noble and brave warrior "Noble Banquo"
4. "Are ye fantastical" he is suspicious of witches as their appearance is misleading
5." O, treachery!" suggests he did not suspect that macbeth would betray him

Yep, that would be easy. But you also have to quote outside of the extract and in order to get full marks, my teacher told us to "explode" the quote inside the text and directly contrast it to somewhere else in the play so for Banquo, that is where I struggle as he is not in the play much but yet he is a prominent character.

Some of the teachers also predict that Macduff could also come up.
