can someone pls tell me if this is an ok paragraph on how ambition is portrayed. In the play Macbeth, Shakespeare presents ambition as a form of corruption through its consequences. The use of contrast in the character Macbeth emphasises the destruction it can cause. This is highlighted in 'For brave Macbeth, well he deserved that name' portraying Macbeths honour and dignity to be his dominant features towards the start of the play. The adjective 'brave' highlights Macbeths high status and respect which is also discussed through other characters description of Macbeth as 'noble' and ‘valiant’. However, the use of the past tense ‘deserved' foreshadows that this attribute will be lost. In contrast, by the end of the play Macbeths corrupted mindset is dramatically portrayed through, ‘o full of scorpions is mind dear wife.' The extremely horrific animalistic imagery suggests that Macbeth no longer obtains the endeavouring qualities that he portrayed at the start of the play and has a fragmented confused mindset. This is further shown in ‘is this a dagger which I see before me? The handle toward my hand. Come let me clutch thee.’ Shakespeare uses multiple caesura to show Macbeths fragmented mind. Furthermore, the rhetorical question used in his dialogue suggests that he is hallucinating and therefore portraying Macbeths loss of control and the alliteration of the letter ‘C’ highlights Macbeths own disgust at his actions. Therefore, the use of contrast between Macbeths character highlights the effect of ambition in the play.

I mean that paragraph does sound very good- but if last years exam was about ambition it will obviously not come up this year- but you should get high marks if you write your paragraphs like that
