Anyone got good Macbeth or Jekyll and Hyde quotes with reasons/explanations?
i have my English Literature GCSE on tuesday and i havent done any revision nor will i have time to due to other exams i havent revised for like physics, maths and geography coming up this week.
do you have any quotes which will make me excel in my exam or good things to remember e.g. setting
“Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead are but as pictures. ‘Tis the eye of childhood that fears a painted devil.”
- this is a really effective yet not frequently used quotation that will make you stand out to examiners.
Here, Lady Macbeth attempts to emasculate her husband by implying that he is too childish and cowardly to return to the murder scene and replace the daggers there. She begins by commanding him to give her the daggers- or metaphorically hand over the role of leadership- before suggesting that there’s no difference in appearance between dead and sleeping people. Due to her lack of remorse, guilt or respect for those Macbeth has murdered, the audience begins to see her ruthless character. But she also suggests that Macbeth is cowardly by comparing his ‘fears’ to a child’s, which shows the power dynamic in their relationship
This might help^^
You’ll find plenty on Lady Macbeth for eg in Act 1 Scene 5, with her whole soliloquy about becoming masculine. It’s highly likely they’ll ask u at least something on her or her relationship w/Macbeth.
As for Jekyll and Hyde, there’s heaps of stuff in the last chapter (I think it’s chapter 9 or 10) when Jekyll reveals all the stuff about how he became Hyde and basically “all is explained”. You’ll find heaps of quotes in this chapter about how Hyde is presented as evil, the duality of man and the struggle for dominance between Jekyll and Hyde.
