so for 'brandished steel' i wrote loads on how traumatised the steel (personification) was by being 'brandished' and how the strength and violence of macbeth managed to ruin the strong metal coz it became 'brandished'

but apparently that's not the meaning of brandished but would i get marks or

help plz I'm stressing

edit: to people who studied macbeth- could my analysis have made sense? do u think my points could be justified and would i get marks

You wouldn't lose any marks you just wouldn't gain any for that part.

Basically you should've said that the brandished steel is a metonym for his sword
