    Comment on Shakespeare’s presentation of
    Macbeth, focusing on your selection of two
    relevant scenes

    At the beginning of the play Macbeth is presented as a brave
    soldier, “For brave Macbeth-well he deserves that name.” He
    and Banquo fought well against the rebels, so he was made
    Thane of Cawdor, “What he has lost, noble Macbeth have won.”
    At the end of the play Macbeth is no longer seen as brave as he
    not only follows what his wife says but he is also persuaded by
    the evil female witches.

    The role of a man was to make all the decisions by himself. He
    was meant to be brave and loyal, just like Macbeth was at the
    beginning of the play. The role of a man now is very different, as
    today woman are allowed to have their say in what goes on. In
    the society we live in men and women are equal.

    The role of the king was to be ___________________________
    ________________________________ ___________________
    ________________________ A good and noble king should be
    represented ________________________________ _________
    Shakespeare developed the play in this way because James I
    Had just come to the throne and he wanted to impress him so
    that he could carry on writing stories for him like he did
    Elizabeth. Shakespeare made Banquo a strong character as he
    was a distant relative of James, so wanted to say indirectly that
    James was a brilliant king.

    The role of woman was to look after the children and the house.
    In the play women have a lot of impact on what goes on, for
    example “your hand, your tongue; look like th’innocent flower,
    but be the serpent under’t.” Shakespeare is not trying to give the
    impression that women had rights, but is trying to show that
    Macbeth is a weak character.


    In Act One, Scene Two Macbeth is represented as a strong,
    brave, loyal and noble character. He fighting against the Rebels
    with Banquo. This scene is written in verse.

    In Act Four, Scene One the supernatural world is represented
    ________________________________ ___________________
    ______ Macbeth often starts speaking in 4 beat rhythm which
    the witches speak in. This relevant as it shows us the evil in
    him. Macbeth believes what the witches tell him.
    :confused:

    umm..u cud tlk about that the witches are only able to fortell the future and cannot change destiny and that it was Macbeth's weak character that made him go bak to them so it is his own decision to associate with the witches..whcih shows that he has a weak character...

    you cud also check out sum websites like www.essaybank.co.uk, they hav essays that u cud look at and get ideas from
