Macbeth

Language Shakespeare's characters talk in pictures and analogies. The pictures and analogies they use tell you a lot about them.

Language: Macbeth vs. Banquo Macbeth: Come, seeling night, Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day And with thy bloody and invisible hand Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond Which keeps me pale. Banquo: This guest of summer, The temple-haunting martlet does approve, By his loved mansionry that the heaven’s breath Smells wooingly here.

Macbeth:

Come, seeling night,

Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day

And with thy bloody and invisible hand

Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond

Which keeps me pale.

Banquo:

This guest of summer,

The temple-haunting martlet does approve,

By his loved mansionry that the heaven’s breath

Smells wooingly here.

Introspection Shakespeare's tragic figures are different from Oedipus. Oedipus confronts his place in the universe and his relationship to the gods. Macbeth and Hamlet confront themselves. Shakespeare employs the SOLILOQUY to dramatize this introspection.

Doppelgangers Shakespeare's tragic heroes are divided, conflicted people who must confront the terrible ramifications of their choices and actions alone. The gods are conspicuously absent in Shakespeare’s plays. This realization that one must face these horrors alone makes these tragic figures suffer.
