Nature-“Thunder and lightning.” This is the description of the scene before Act I, Scene I, line 1. The thunder and lightning represent disturbances in nature -The witches are also surrounded by more undesired parts of weather: “Hover through the fog and filthy air” (line 11).-The weather might personify the witches, meaning that the witches themselves are disturbances, though not limited to nature. The bad weather also might mean that the witches are bad or foul (“filthy air”) creatures.(Basically, the three witches are personified by _____) Bad Weather

What does Lady Macbeth see is a man? “And fill me, from the crown to the toe, top-full / Of direst cruelty! Make thick my blood, / Stop up th’ access and passage to remorse, / That no compunctions visitings of nature / Shake my fell purpose, not keep peace between / Th’ effect and it!” (lines 43 – 48). She (Lady Macbeth) wishes she were a man-“Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,” says Lady Macbeth (Act I, scene v, lines 41 – 42). This is probably important, but there’s not exactly much to put on this side. Just know that Lady Macbeth said these quotes I suppose.
To help convince Macbeth not to call the murder off, Lady Macbeth questions his manhood. She says, “When you durst do it, then you were a man; / And to be more than what you were, you would / Be so much more the man” (lines 49 – 51). The sad part is that Lady Macbeth truly does believe that Macbeth wouldn’t be a man if he didn’t agree to the killing.

While _____ implores him to “dispute it like a man” (line 220), he says that he must also “feel it as a man” (line 221), which changes the image of a man given above by Lady Macbeth.-While Lady Macbeth portrays men as being cruel and cold-hearted, he shows that a man is cruel and cold when he needs to be, but feels just as intensely as he acts.

(Lady Macbeth)-In scene vi, Lady Macbeth puts on her mask. She says (lines 14 – 20) that the service and hospitality are nothing “Against those honors deep and broad wherewith / Your Majesty loads our house . . .” (Lady Macbeth) She easily keeps any suspicion off of her in her ruse. -Banquo sees through Macbeth’s masks. In Act III, scene i, Banquo puts up his own masks. He almost knows that Macbeth is the murderer, but he hides his suspicions while he idly talks to Macbeth. The masks aren’t always limited to uses of evil. Probably something important in here. No clue.

This struggle occurs in every act of the play. -_____ is the hero of the play. He is the light that will soon come to a final climactic battle with the dark (Macbeth). -There is also religious meaning to this: God against the devil, Macbeth being the devil (remember how he couldn’t say “Amen” in Act II?).
