Assignment

This exercise requires you to read a speech from the text (chosen in example 1) to reflect the feelings of the character who said it. In this exercise, the tone and rhythm of speech can reflect how the character will feel in making his/her point.

Choose a Sp>

An example of a speech you could use is the speech in which Lady Macbeth argues for Macbeth’s friends to leave the castle when Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost and almost admits to his murder. This line of dialogue happens near the end of Act III.

Analyze the Sp>

Analyze the sp>
Point of view: Lady Macbeth knows the actions of Macbeth, and how he is frail due to his guilty conscience. Therefore, this speech comes loaded with subtext toward the attitude of her husband’s manhood.

Reasoning: For this question, refer to the speech section in Exercise 1. Lady Macbeth reasons with the table that Macbeth’s actions must be the case of an illness, for why else would he feel such a strange way towards Banquo and the guests. Lady Macbeth feels the only appropriate way out of this mess would be to fake Macbeth as being sick.

Word Choice: For this question, refer to the speech section in Exercise 1. Lady Macbeth’s use of the term “displaced mirth” to settle her guests and remain polite while in the same breath insulting Macbeth’s behavior. She additionally uses the word “enraged” to make Macbeth seem unapproachable, so that his friends will not ask him incriminating questions while he is in such a vulnerable state.

Emphasis: For this question, refer to the speech section in Exercise 1. The main emphasis in Lady Macbeth’s dialogue is to make an excuse so that Macbeth and the guests can part ways without any worse behavior being displayed.

Links Between ideas: For this question, refer to the speech section in Exercise 1. Lady Macbeth uses logical reasoning to explain why her guests should leave the castle. She explains that because Macbeth has “displaced the mirth” of the evening and he is “enraged” that is guests should leave immediately.

Rehearse the Recitation

Rehearse: With a partner, try to memorize the speech that Lady Macbeth makes on page 307, as shown in Exercise 1.

Present the Recitation

Present: using the prompt on page 312, present the speech to communicate clearly the dialogue and intentions of Lady Macbeth

Lead A Discussion

Discussion: In discussion, it might be helpful to mention the intentions of Lady Macbeth towards her guests (respect, courtesy) in conflict with her feelings toward Macbeth (hostility, shame, fear).

Media Connection

In most of the Act I, it seems as though the witches spark a thought that Lady Macbeth elaborates on to the point of completion. When the witches suggest that Macbeth will become the “Thane of Cawdor”, it evokes mostly confusion and wonder from Macbeth. However, Lady Macbeth makes a commitment to reject her womanhood in order to kill the king. It is her ultimate argument, and plead that his manhood will not be retained if the King lives, that makes Macbeth go through with the killing.

As the witches complete their predictions in Scene i of Act IV, they finish by “charming the air” and performing a circular dance right before Lennox enters, as they know that he is arriving. When they eventually vanish, Lennox is not able to see them while Macbeth insists that they were there. (pg 319)

During Scene ii of Act iv, Lady Macduff is angry at her husband for fleeing their estate and leaving her alone. Ross consoles her by suggesting that she doesn’t understand how dire the situation is, and that he is only gone for a good reason, as he knows the, “The fits o’ th’ seasons”, pg 321.

By the end of Act iv, Macduff and Malcolm conspire to kill Macbeth for being unfit and undeserving of the throne. Macduff tells Malcolm, “Fit to govern. No, not fit to live!”(325) after Macbeth killed Macduff’s family to protect his throne. Malcolm agrees that, although it is a horrible thing, he is sworn to do what is best for his country, even after being tempted by Macduff over his loyalty and Macolm’s own desire to possibly take the throne. The two agree that Macbeth must be removed from power.

In Act IV of Macbeth, the witches come to give another round of prophecies that lead Macbeth to vow fully to act upon instinct for the rest of the play. He will no longer deal with moral dilemma or ethics, but by his heart. In another castle, Lady Macduff expresses suspicions at her husband being gone for so long before murderers sent by Macbeth come to slay her son. When this news reaches Macduff, who is conspiring with Malcolm, they both vow to bring war to Macbeth.

The three prophecy that the witches predict are that 1) Macbeth will become King of Scotland, 2) that he will also be named Thane of Cawdor, and 3) That Banquo’s heirs will be kings.

Lady Macbeth fears that Macbeth is not up for the task of killing the king when he is their guest. This act would fulfill the witches prophecy, which is what she wants. She worries that Macbeth will be, “It is too full o’ th’ milk of human kindness (270), and not kill the king.

ACT 1: Three witches introduce the audience to a character called Macbeth, who is a soldier that is slated to become the next “Thane of Cawdor”. Later, when Macbeth returns from battle and disembowelment, he and his friends discuss the prophecy and the expectations, in which the current Thane of Cawdor was killed for being a traitor. A character named the Captain goes off to be treated, and Macbeth has plans to have King Duncan as a guest. His wife, Lady Macbeth, initiated an idea to kill the king, and gives herself over to the witch’s power. She convinces Macbeth to kill the king, citing his manhood and power, and Macbeth ultimately gives in.

Research to Clarify

Example: In researching the word “thane” it is defined as a person who owns land directly from the King, and was common in the Shakespearean times of Scotland.This land was usually a gift for service, so it would make sense that Macbeth would receive land for his heroic war service to the current king.

Research to Exp>

Some examples include:”The Three Witches” by Alexandre- Marie Colinor “Macbeth and the Witches” by Granger. Both can be found online and in reproductions.

Close Read the Text

Lines such as “When the hurlyduryl’s done/ when the battle’s lost and won” (261) and “Where the place/ upon the heath” invoke childlike rhyme schemes that directly conflict with the otherwise scary and evil nature of the witches. It’s this contrast that makes the rhyming patterns unsettling, as if warping a childlike device to be dark.

Analyze the Text

Macbeth, upon seeing the witches, goes into a “rapt” state (264), which is translike and hypnotic. Banquo is more level-headed, and even inquires into the witches beards (“and yet your beards forbid me to interpret”) and prohecy’s, asking why he was not given one, (“to me you speak not”) (264). Macbeth feels fear, whereas Banquo is only interested.

As a guest at the house of Macbeth, the king announced that his son Malcolm will be the next King of Scotland. Macbeth hates to hear this, (“The Prince of Cumberland!’) and is effect to start planning the murder of those who stand in his way, (“Let not light see my black and deep desires”) (269).

The reasons that Macbeth gives for not killing the king are that he,”[am] a kinsman and his subject, strong both against the deed, and his host”) (273). He also admits, that although the King is “meek”, that he is not a bad ruler. He agree that he has no strife upon the King, only “vaulting ambition”, (273). He decides not to kill the King after the soliloquy.

Why These Words

The words “captivity” and “treason” relate to actions that are involved in war and conflict. Additionally “assault” , “rebellion”, and (as stated in the text) “revolt” all have meanings that are similar to the violence expected in war.

Practice

Example; one of the worst treasons to commit on the battlefield is the assault of your own army. On the grounds of war, a revolt is never accepted from within the army, and you will be called a rebellious spirit, and if you flout an attitude that conflicts with other soldiers, your time spent on the battlefield will be short.

Word Study

Belligerent:means to be hostile and aggressive. Similar in aggression to that of wartime.
Bellicose: a willingness to fight. Related directly to violence and war, such as in the the words.

The author “sees” England for the first time during class when her teacher presents it on a map as part of a lesson.

She says that to learn to draw a map of England from memory was made to make her feel in awe of England, and to feel small because she was not a part of it.

The author grew up>When the author holds this same prejudice, there is not this power behind it; her beliefs do not have any real consequential impact when compared to the reverse.

The speaker is in Brixton as a witness to the riots being held by descendants of previously enslaved West Indians, who had been experiencing prejudice from the British.

The author describes the fairy tale ideal of England as including “fairy rings,” “thatched cottages,” and a “green gale lifting the hair of Warwickshire” (pg 210). These are all fanciful ideals of a classical English village; such imagery was likely painted for him as a child living in a community that had been colonized by the British.

Analyze the Text

The author reflects up>
The author makes it clear that she has been encouraged to view England with awe and respect for her entire life from many different sources: her family, her school, her neighbors. The English way of living was something to aspire to, the ultimate way of life. But this way of life is unachievable in her part of the world for many reasons; the weather is different, the economy is not flourishing in the same way (largely as a result of the damage the English colonization has done, ironically). She is being made to chase a standard that is very different than her own resources allow and is being robbed of her ability to fully appreciate her own heritage and surroundings.

Why These Words

Another word that might fit into this category would be “prejudice,” which Kincaid uses in her essay, because it implies that one has a negative attitude toward those of a different social standing in society.

Word Study

Since the root “-jug-” means “yoke” or “harness”, adding the prefix “sub”, which means “under” secures the meaning to be “to bring under the control of a harness”.

Breaking down each part of the word, we can determine that “subcostal” literally means “under the ribs”.

Read It

When Kincaid first talks about “seeing” England, she means “seeing” in a literal sense; it was the first time she saw what England looked like on a map. She then expands upon the definition of seeing when she talks about “seeing” it when she learned about its history; her view of it was expanding as she learned more about it. Finally, when she went to visit England, not only did she literally see England in person, but saw it in a new light; she began to recognize how deep her hatred for England really ran.

The depth of his understanding of these plays is clear; the references he pulls are very insightful and specific; it is likely that he understands Shakespeare better than many of his white contemporaries.

Write It

Kincaid’s essay’s most impactful stylistic device is amplification; the framework of her essay is centered around the amplification of the idea of “seeing” England. Walcott’s is more focused on Allusions to literary work and art and poetic compression. The two pieces both have a strong sense of irony. In Kincaid’s essay, the irony is slowly revealed along with her disdain for England; she was taught to love it, and many of her memories involve England, even her very personal ones (her dad’s felt hat, for example). While it appears at first that she does genuinely have awe for England, the reader is slowly able to realize that her words have been heavy with irony from the start. The irony in Walcott’s appears in the second half of his poem, when the idea that a black man like himself could not possibly understand Shakespeare; he proceeds to prove this idea wrong with several Shakespeare references crammed into just a few lines.
