Question Description

1) After Macduff’s revelation about his birth, which passage shows Macbeth’s commitment to carrying out the final battle?

Ring the alarum-bell! Blow, wind! come, wrack!

The mind I sway by and the heart I bear / Shall never sag with doubt nor shake with fear. 

Hang those that talk of fear. Give me mine armour.

I will not yield / To kiss the ground below young Malcolm’s feet / And to be baited with the rabble’s curse


2) Which passage underscores Macbeth’s belief in his invincibility?

Why should I play the Roman fool, and die / On mine own sword?

If thou speak’st false / Upon the next tree shalt thou hang alive

As easy mayst thou the intrenchant air / With thy keen sword impress as make me bleed

Go prick thy face, and over-red thy fear / Thou lily-liver’d boy.


3) Which passage shows Macbeth’s belief in his interpretation of the witches prophecy?

Thou wast born of woman / But swords I smile at, weapons laugh to scorn / Brandished by man that’s of woman born.

And damn'd be him that first cries, 'Hold, enough!'

Such a one / Am I to fear, or none.

I will not be afraid of death and bane / Till Birnam forest come to Dunsinane.


4) Make all the trumpets speak; give them all breath
Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death.
