  1. Act 1, Scene 7 Macbeth’s Monologue

  2. SCENE VII. Macbeth's castle. Hautboys and torches. Enter a Sewer, and divers Servants with dishes and service, and pass over the stage. Then enter MACBETH Repetition of the dictions shows he wants it to be over fast and wishes it were done immediately Alliteration Sibilance metaphor MACBETH If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well     It were done quickly: if the assassination    Could trammel up the consequence, and catch     With his surcease success; that but this blow    Might be the be-all and the end-all here,     But here, upon this bank and shoal of time,     We'd jump the life to come. But in these cases     We still have judgment here; that we but teach Bloodyinstructions, which, being taught, return To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice     Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice To our own lips. He's here in double trust;     First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, Personification Monosyllables Death, all that is to be and what completes everything Idiom, what goes around comes around, and thus foreboding Diction, showing how messy and gruesome the deed is. Impartial metaphor Metaphor Rationality Personification Bringing trouble upon them selves Risky, taking life as it comes

  3. Listing- shows Duncan’s qualities/traits-could be used to create pathos. He should be the protector, not the traitor. 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. 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. Both strong arguments. Diction-incorrupt, free of error. Strong both against the deed; then, ashis 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 clearin his great office, that hisvirtuesWill plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, againstThe deep damnation ofhis taking-off;Andpity, like anaked new-born babe,Striding the blast, orheaven'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 spurTo prick the sides of my intent, but only     Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself     And falls on the other. 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. 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. Metaphor- The Angels will punish those who committed the evil crime. 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. Alliteration
