Macbeth Terminology Terminology  As we read various scenes

Macbeth Terminology Terminology As we read various scenes and sections of the play, you will need to look out for examples of the following terms. While it is important to look at Shakespeares work from a literary

perspective (that is written), it is also important to consider the dramatic elements of the play, as that is what 1. Pathetic Fallacy Human emotions and feelings represented in nature. Giving nature human emotions. For example: A cruel lonesome wind is howling through the trees 2. Subversion Challenging, upsetting or overthrowing

an accepted idea. In literary terms, texts can subvert ideas when they rebel against accepted social ideas or structure For example: The character of Christopher Boone subverts what is considered typical for the narrator of a story. 3. Foreshadowing Warning or indication of a future event. For example: Romeo and Juliet Life were better ended by their hate, Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love Romeo says, in the above lines, that he would rather

have her love and die sooner than not obtain her love and die later. Eventually, he gets her love and dies for her love, too. 4. Dramatic Irony When readers/viewers/audience have knowledge about something the characters do not. For example: Viewers know that Juliet is not actually dead, but rather she has taken a sleeping potion, when Romeo kills himself. 5. Pun

A pun is a play on words, often humorous, that uses words that have similar or identical sounds but very different meanings. For example: My friend's bakery burned down last night. Now his business is toast. My dog has a lot of potential, you just have to unleash it. 6. Innuendo A subtle or indirect observation about a person or thing, usually

of a cruel or malicious nature; an insinuation. Can have sexual innuendo. 7. Double Entendre Words or phrases with more than one meaning. Double meanings. Unlike innuendo, a double entendre is not usually planned or intended to be sly. 8. Iambic Pentameter A line that has 10 syllables but only the second is stressed (5 stressed syllables).

In Shakespearean plays, most verses are written using IP, except the lower class characters who write in prose. For example: If mu- / -sic be / the food / of love, / play on Is this / a dag- / -ger I / see be- / fore me? 9. Rhymed Couplet As the words suggests, rhyming couplets are two lines that rhyme. In Macbeth rhyming couplets are always used for the witches. For example: Double, double, toil and trouble.

Act 2, Scene 2 What does Macbeth mean as he says: Methought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep', the innocent sleep, Sleep that knits up the ravell'd sleeve of care, The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath, Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,

Chief nourisher in life's feast,-Still it cried 'Sleep no more!' to all the house: 'Glamis hath murder'd sleep, and therefore Cawdor Shall sleep no more; Macbeth shall sleep no more.' Act 2, Scene 2 Macbeth shall sleep no more. Sleep is a symbol of rejuvenation and refreshment, a chance to recover. Sleep has also been used as a double entendre

for a sense of peace of mind Macbeth is foreshadowing that he will no longer be able to sleep in the future due to his impending guilt. He will not have peace of mind or sanity because of what he has done. Imagery in Act 2, Scenes 1 and 2 Download the worksheet Imagery

show the theme? 2 Why is this theme significant to the entire play? Theme: Love can be a powerful force. (Romeo and Juliet) In William Shakespeares play Romeo and Juliet the theme that love can be a powerful force is heavily emphasised through events and characters. The play focuses on romantic love; passionate and intense romance that overpowers all other emotions or forces. This theme is first explored when Romeo and Juliet meet at the

masquerade ball and they share their first kiss and continues until their love prevails over the hatred of their families with their untimely death. Perhaps the most poignant example of how love is force not be reckoned with is when Juliet refuses to classify her love for Romeo, instead trusting its powerful nature: But my true love is grown to such excess / I cannot sum up some of half my wealth. Juliets hyperbolic declaration of love symbolises the excessive nature of her connection with Romeo. Ironically, the audience knows, through dramatic irony, that this romance will end with neither excess or wealth, but what is certain is that the force and power of love can overcome other senses. Naturally, the idea of love is at the centre of the entire play, but the development of the The Written Report: PART B VISUAL

your poster e.g. salient image, colour scheme, reading path. Within each heading you will then provide information about how this element is developed in your poster. The Written Report: PART B VISUAL LITERACY For EACH AND EVERY visual element you identify in your poster you must: Identify where/how the element was used = The salient image of the dagger

Give a specific example = The colours of red, black and grey used for the background Provide a justification for the visual choice linking to the theme you discussed in Part 1 = The large size of the crown, acting as the salient image, has been chosen to emphasise the significance of this object for Macbeth in his quest for power. By increasing the size of the crown the viewer understands the importance of this object for Macbeth and know that he will do anything to obtain the crown, including murder. Act 2, Scene 4 Read

By the end of the play, how do you know order has been restored? Was justice served? Who Did It? Earlier in the term, you were asked to consider who was ultimately responsible for the murder of Macbeth.

Has your opinion changed? Do you still think the same person was responsible? What changed/confirmed your opinion? Application to Modern Society Brainstorm with a partner a film, book, event or situation you have

been exposed to that has some element of the ideas learned from Macbeth. What does this say about the universality of Shakespeares work?
