What is a man , according to William Shakespeare? Textual Evidence What is a man? Captain: For brave Macbeth well he deserves that name- disdaining Fortune, with his brandished steel, / Which smoked with bloody execution, / Like valors minion carved out his passage / Till he faced the slave; / Which nevr shook

hands, nor bade farewell to him, /Till he unseamed him from the nave to the chops, / And fixed his head upon our battlements (441). What is a man? Banquo: But tis strange: / And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, / The instruments of darkness tell us truths, / Win us with honest trifles, to betray us / In deepest consequence (447). What is a man? Macbeth: Prithee, peace! / I dare do all

that may become a man; / Who dares do more is none (454). What is a man? Banquo: As upon thee, Macbeth, their speeches shine- / Why, by the verities on thee made good, / May they not be my oracles as well / And set me up in hope? But hush, no more! (472). What is a man? Ross: I pray you school yourself. But, for your

husband, / He is noble, wise, judicious, and best knows / The fits o th season (495). What is a man? Malcolm: What, man! Neer pull your hat upon your brows; / Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak Whispers the oer-fraught heart, and bids it break (503). What is a man? Malcolm: Dispute it like a man.

Macduff: I shall do so; / But I must also feel it as a man (504). What is a man? Macduff: I could play the woman with mine eyes, / And braggart with my tongue! Bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself; / Within my swords length set him (505). Writing Prompt
