Where Macbeth is talking about “bring me no more reports...i cannot taint with fear...the devil damn thee...” what quotes can I use, what points of analysis? I don’t know how to analyse at all I really need to. Improve

First of all, u will need to make sure to chose a quote that has a lot of connotations, that way u can go into deep analysis. Examiners are a sucker for deep analysis. Then write the quote on a paper, spider diagram or whatever ur good with, then look for themes, motifs, or link across the text, and find a way to link it back to context also. make a checklist of everything I listed above and tick them off when u have a point for each....they are basically there to help u ensure that u covered the all the Aos. Also, don't forget to link each point back to the question. then try to write a paragraph. hope this helps ya.

i just scrolled back up to check ur question again and i remembered. Mentioning that Macbeth is a tragic hero because of his Harmatia; fault/mistakes (don't know if ur familiar with that) and Ego; excess pride caused his tragic fall and stuff, boosts ur grades i think.

There are links within the play from the kind of characater we see in Act 1 Sc 2 - where on his own with the support of Banquo Macbeth defeats the uprising against King Duncan. Act 5 scene 3 begings a series of scenes whene we see the kind of character we saw in 1 / 2.

The English army that assembles to topple him is immense and far out numbers Macbeth's defences. So as you read these lines - especially 5/3 - we see a Macbeth (villain though he is) prepare to meet and fisght with a force that far outnumbers his own defences. Like 1/2 personal safety is not an issue for Macbeth.

In 5/5 Macbeth gets the news that his wife is dead. It is clear that his personal preference is to mourn for her, but he dismisses such personal desires because of the danger that now faces. I.e. the danger to his throne must take presidence. Personal emotions must await for a later time.

These are areas I might use to answer this question - there are more as tou progress through Act 5. The comparison with Act 1 Sc 2 is importannt because in that scene macbeth is eeen to be honourable and brave. Act 5 Scenes 3 onwards demonstrates that these characteristics were basic to Macbeth but had been overpowered by ambition.
