Elijah Davis, Thomas Ng, Chris Song, James Tsai Ms. McGuigan English Pd 2 Macbeth Handout #4 Aim: James: The condition of my backpack/room is an accurate metaphor of my mind. My backpack is very organized and I like to keep my backpack nice, fresh, and clean. This relates to how my mind functions and that the simple the better. My room is also very clean and everything has to be clean, which correlates to how my mind functions because my organized personality allows me to navigate my bedroom easily. Chris: The condition of my backpack is an accurate metaphor for my mind because I keep things in my bag in the same places all time. I make it easy to remember where I keep everything and which is like my mind. I try to keep everything organized and in the same place to make everything easier to remember. Elijah: The condition of my backpack is an accurate metaphor for my mind because it is in some areas organized yet in others a complete mess. Like my mind, which I find to be mostly organized in some areas, like with schoolwork, but a mess in other areas. Thomas: The condition of my room is an accurate metaphor for my mind. Parts of my room are very neat while other parts are a complete mess. This is like my mind because sometimes my thoughts are clear but other times they’re not. Chris 1)Malcolm’s reflection of Cawdor’s death is significant because it shows that Malcolm thinks that Cawdor died repenting and asking for forgiveness from the king. For example, Malcolm describes his death “With one that saw him die, who did report /That very frankly he confessed his treasons,/Implored your Highness’ pardon, and set forth/A deep repentance.” (Shakespeare,1.4.5-8) It shows that apparently Cawdor regretted betraying King Duncan.

Duncan’s response is significant because it shows that he still doesn’t trust Cawdor even after he died repenting and asking for forgiveness from him. King Duncan says “There’s no art/To find the mind’s construction in the face.”(Shakespeare, 1.4.13-14) This means that there is no way to judge what a person is thinking just from looking at his face. He also says “He was a gentleman on whom I built /An absolute trust.”(Shakespeare, 1.4.15-16) This shows that he trusted Cawdor but since he betrayed him, he will never trust him even after he is dead. Chris 2) Duncan’s plant metaphor is significant because it helps to show that he has started something and will finish it. He describes giving Macbeth the title of Thane of Cawdor by saying “Welcome hither./I have begun to plant thee and will labor/To make thee full of growing.”(Shakespeare 1.4.30-32) This is a metaphor for Macbeth's title as Thane of Cawdor. Banquo replies to Duncan by saying “ There if i grow / the harvest is your own”(Shakespeare 1.4. 37-38) This shows his allegiance is to Duncan. It means that if he is successful the credit will be to Duncan. This dialogue helps develop each of the characters because it shows that Duncan is a generous and caring King. He says that he will help and “grow” Banquo and Macbeth. The dialogue shows that Banquo is also generous because he says that if he is

    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.
