LOOOOL same same sameeee..
A Porter, out of allll the bloody characters A PORTER!
I didn't even know there was a porter in Macbeth until today! Absolute nonsense
What's worse is that you could barely write a think cuz you couldn't understand a single word.
I was absolutely fuming.
The teachers were so annoyed as well.

The question for Macbeth was:
1) How is the Porter presented in the extract
2) The theme of evil elsewhere in the play

i literally revised iambic meters, trochee, anadiplosis and every ****ing technique but my mind went blank after the first question. i didnt even get to speak about how inspector goole was significant because he represents angel of death and **** because i was still thinking about the first question while doing the others. i honestly ****ed up and edexcel ****ed up.

It was one I've never seen before and it was about a Porter imagining that the people who were entering through the gates were the gates of hell. Like WTH I had to recheck multiple times to check if it actually doing the Macbeth question that's how bad it was. Sorry i have no idea what exact extract it was.

PORTER

Here’s a knocking indeed! If a man were porter of hell-gate, he should have old turning the key.

PORTER

This is a lot of knocking! Come to think of it, if a man were in charge of opening the gates of hell to let people in, he would have to turn the key a lot.
Knock within
A sound of knocking from offstage.
Knock, knock, knock! Who’s there, i' th' name of Beelzebub? Here’s a farmer that hanged himself on the expectation of plenty. Come in time, have napkins enough about you, here you’ll sweat for ’t.
Knock, knock, knock! (pretending he’s the gatekeeper in hell) Who’s there, in the devil’s name? Maybe it’s a farmer who killed himself because grain was cheap. (talking to the imaginary farmer) You’re here just in time! I hope you brought some handkerchiefs; you’re going to sweat a lot here.
Knock within
A sound of knocking from offstage.
Knock, knock! Who’s there, in th' other devil’s name? Faith, here’s an equivocator that could swear in both the scales against either scale, who committed treason enough for God’s sake, yet could not equivocate to heaven. O, come in, equivocator.
Knock, knock! Who’s there, in the other devil’s name? Maybe it’s some slick, two-faced con man who lied under oath. But he found out that you can’t lie to God, and now he’s going to hell for perjury. Come on in, con man.
Knock within
A sound of knocking from offstage.
5Knock, knock, knock! Who’s there? Faith, here’s an English tailor come hither for stealing out of a French hose. Come in, tailor. Here you may roast your goose.
Knock, knock, knock! Who’s there? Maybe it’s an English tailor who liked to skimp on the fabric for people’s clothes. But now that tight pants are in fashion he can’t get away with it. Come on in, tailor. You can heat your iron up in here.
Knock within
MACDUFF

Was it so late, friend, ere you went to bed,
That you do lie so late?
MACDUFF

Did you go to bed so late, my friend, that you’re having a hard time getting up now?
PORTER

10'Faith sir, we were carousing till the second ****. And drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things.
PORTER

That’s right sir, we were drinking until 3 A.M., and drink, sir, makes a man do three things.
MACDUFF

What three things does drink especially provoke?
MACDUFF

What three things does drink make a man do?
PORTER

Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes and unprovokes. It provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance. Therefore, much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery. It makes him, and it mars him; it sets him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him, and disheartens him; makes him stand to and not stand to; in conclusion, equivocates him in a sleep, and, giving him the lie, leaves him.
PORTER

Drinking turns your nose red, it puts you to sleep, and it makes you urinate. Lust it turns on but also turns off. What I mean is, drinking stimulates desire but hinders performance. Therefore, too much drink is like a con artist when it comes to your sex drive. It sets you up for a fall. It gets you up but it keeps you from getting off. It persuades you and discourages you. It gives you an erection but doesn’t let you keep it, if you see what I’m saying. It makes you dream about erotic experiences, but then it leaves you asleep and needing to pee.
MACDUFF

I believe drink gave thee the lie last night.

Thats the problem because everyone never knew that that was about Macbeth like who would've known there was a porter in Macbeth like I've never heard of that before if you have then you're just super smart but I never knew that and that really really irritated me because I literally didn't think I was reading the correct extract that's how bad it was.
