Hey,

What are the best quotes to learn for Macbeth? I'm thinking ones for themes and character movement throughout the play?

Simple 2-3 word quotes that could be embedded if needs be!

Thanks!

"Unsex me here" - Lady Macbeth
"Take my milk for gall" - Lady Macbeth
"Look like th' innocent flower, But be the serpent under ’t." - Lady Macbeth - Longer one but is good
"Be innocent of the knowledge" - Macbeth

These are just from the top of my head, but I will check some material I have and add a few more.

A Christmas Carol
An Inspector Calls
Need any help with those books?

Not sure if you do, but this is a good analysis we did at school as a class:

Dickens initially constructs Scrooge as misanthropic. He does this using the simile "as solitary as an oyster" which epitomises the protagonist as an individual who craves seclusion. The use of the noun "oyster" not only expresses his loneliness, but can also act as a representation of the wealth that he despises to share which is signified by the pearl of an oyster. This ignites his selfish and ignorant ideas, however further strengthens the idea of loneliness as the pearl and the shell is used as a defence mechanism to prevent unwanted people from coming close.

"...all's too weak for brave Macbeth" - Act 1, Scene 2 - Links to the theme of expectations of masculinity and violence
"...only vaulting ambition..." - Act 1, Scene 7 - Links to the key theme of ambition
"Macbeth shall sleep no more" - Act 2, Scene 2 - Links to the theme of guilt

A Christmas Carol
An Inspector Calls
Dickens envelopes the significant change found in Scrooge through the quote of "No fog, no mist: clear, bright, jovial, stirring...". The use of pathetic fallacy and juxtaposing the "fog" and "mist" with "clear bright" skies, illustrates the transformative impact of the night's events on Scrooge.

Shakespeare's use of the metaphorical "vaulting ambition" encapsulates the inherent and unstoppable desire for power that exists within Macbeth


Sorry for the small spam, hope I was able to help!

Don't think you'd want that, I'm barely scraping an 8 and sometimes just scraping a 7.
