Macbeth Intro

  1. 1. Macbeth
  2. 2. Language Shakespeare's characters talk in pictures and analogies. The pictures and analogies they use tell you a lot about them.
  3. 3. Language: Macbeth vs. Banquo <ul><li>Macbeth: </li></ul><ul><li>Come, seeling night, </li></ul><ul><li>Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day </li></ul><ul><li>And with thy bloody and invisible hand </li></ul><ul><li>Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond </li></ul><ul><li>Which keeps me pale. </li></ul><ul><li>Banquo: </li></ul><ul><li>This guest of summer, </li></ul><ul><li>The temple-haunting martlet does approve, </li></ul><ul><li>By his loved mansionry that the heaven’s breath </li></ul><ul><li>Smells wooingly here. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Analogies: Microcosm / Macrocosm <ul><li>The individual (microcosm) is a reflection of the state and the universe (macrocosm). </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Shakespeare’s characters and the world they inhabit are always microcosms of the universe. </li></ul><ul><li>What they do affects all reality. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Microcosm / Macrocosm <ul><li>In addition to characters, images can be microcosms: </li></ul><ul><li>Gardens and Gardeners </li></ul><ul><li>Castles </li></ul><ul><li>Beds </li></ul><ul><li>Meals and Banquets </li></ul>
  7. 7. Blank Verse and Prose <ul><li>The language of introspection is BLANK VERSE, unrhymed lines of IAMBIC PENTAMETER. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Introspection <ul><li>Shakespeare's tragic figures are different from Oedipus. Oedipus confronts his place in the universe and his relationship to the gods. Macbeth and Hamlet confront themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>Shakespeare employs the SOLILOQUY to dramatize this introspection. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Doppelgangers Shakespeare's tragic heroes are divided, conflicted people who must confront the terrible ramifications of their choices and actions alone. The gods are conspicuously absent in Shakespeare’s plays. This realization that one must face these horrors alone makes these tragic figures suffer.
