Macbeth By: William Shakespeare Act III AP Questions Act III, scene I: 1. The soliloquy is a reflection Banquo has of the encounter with the three fates, his suspicion is that the killing of the king was forced upon Macbeth through the prominent idea of the time, witchcraft. The hope of Banquo is that he will bear children who will become kings foreshadowing the baroness of Lady Macbeth. 2. This foreshadows Macbeth’s conflict with Banquo, as previously mentioned, Banquo will bear many kings and this has been a conflict that has arisen in Macbeth’s eyes as he sees these future kids as a threat and intends to cut the tree at the roots. 3. The meaning of this sentence is, “It is nothing to be king unless I am safely so.” It shows the security that you must have in a position for it to really be your own. 4. Banquo’s character is one of honor and this is something that Macbeth gave away in order to achieve a political position. 5. The part that upsets Macbeth is the fact that Banquo is leaving and then coming back, Macbeth wants to eliminate the threat as quickly as possible, and now he has to wait until the next day. 6. It offers the fear that Macbeth has of Banquo and also how he knows that in his kingly status he could easily kill Banquo but he does the politically smart thing because he knows that Banquo has many allies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
