Macbeth Question & Answer
Act I questions
Based on lines 3 and 4 of the first scene, what is going on in Scotland as the play opens?
How does Macbeth go from being the "Thane of Glamis" (like a Duke or Count), to being "Thane of
Cawdor", and thus becoming second in line to the Kingship? (Scene IV, Line 1 has a clue).
"Disharmony in nature" is a theme of Macbeth. How do lines 13 and 14, as well as line 138 (Macbeth's
first line) suggest this?
Banquo's assertions in lines 139-147 suggest what about the witches?
