MACBETH
metaphor
Alliteration
Sibilance
Repetition of the dictions shows he wants it
to be over fast and wishes it were done
immediately
Personification
Monosyllables
Death, all that is
to be and what
completes
everything
If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well
It were done quickly: if the assassination
what goes
Could trammel up the consequence, and catch Idiom,
around comes
With his surcease success; that but this blow
around, and thus
Might
be
the
be-all
and
the
end-all
here,
foreboding
Diction,
But
here,
upon
this
bank
and
shoal
of
time,
showing
We'd jump the life to come. But in these cases
how messy
Impartial
and
We still have judgment here; that we but teach
gruesome
Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return
the deed is.
To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice
Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice
metaphor To our own lips. He's here in double trust;
First, as I am his kinsman and his subject,
Metaphor
Personification
Risky, taking life as it comes
Rationality
Bringing trouble upon
them selves
He should be the
protector, not the
traitor.
Both strong
arguments.
Dictionincorrupt,
free of error.
Personification &
Simile-He will
pity Duncan, the
same way a
person would
pity a crying new
born, hence
relaying
Duncan’s
innocence. He
will want to
cradle pity.
Listing- shows
Duncan’s
qualities/traits-could
be used to create
pathos.
Strong both against the deed; then, as his host,
Who should against his murderer shut the door,
Not bear the knife myself. Besides, this Duncan
Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been
So clear in his great office, that his virtues
Will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against
The deep damnation of his taking-off;
And pity, like a naked new-born babe,
Striding the blast, or heaven's cherubin, horsed
Upon the sightless couriers of the air,
Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye,
That tears shall drown the wind. I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself
And falls on the other.
Metaphor- The Angels
will punish those who
committed the evil
crime.
Alliteration
Personification- his
merits/deeds will mourn his
death. Duncan was such a
pious and noble man that his
deeds will still have an effect
on him, even after life ends.
Metaphor & Irony–
Embracing the
Sounds of the Angels
which depicts that
he has some sort of
faith
He will fall over the hurdles,
and he knows this, but his
ambition, narcissism, etc. is
fueling him.
Simile , religious diction,&
Irony-Angels do not need to
plead to people (god gives
them commands), thus
Shakespeare gives Duncan
a ‘god-like’ superiority.
Angels, and in turn God, are
mourning Duncan’s death.
‘Trumpet-tongued’
suggests that the off-tune
trumpets will signal
Duncan’s atrocious murder.
Euphemism-Death
Metaphor- Angles will
be crying so much,
their voices will
become hoarse.
Metaphor & Pathetic
Fallacy- An abundance of
mourning shall wash away
the sinister, cold, chilly,
wind.
