Conclusion/work on adding 4 category level (on the rubric) to your project
In act 3 scene 2 line 36 when Macbeth said " O full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife!" When Macbeth says scorpions he is talking about all the problems he is having like when he killed Duncan and now he cant sleep because of it and also because he is becoming very suspicious about almost everyone. When Banquo got suspicious about Macbeth he said in act 3 scene 1 lines 2-3 he said" i fear thou play'ds most foully for't". Since everything that the witches has said is becoming true he thinks that Macbeth had to do some ditty work in order for everything that the witches have said to be accomplished.
The specific word choice that is being used in this act is to help the reader understand more the story. It is also used to make the story more interesting and entertaining for the reader. For example in in act 3 scene 3 line 17 Banquo says " fly good Fleance, fly , fly, fly" what he really means is for him to get out of there as soon as possible but when he replaces run with fly it makes it more interesting.
if you compare Macbeth from act 1 to now he has changed completely. Macbeth and Banquo were really close together as friends and as partners but now he has been killing anyone that could get in his way of taking his crown and place from him. Everytime Macbeth kills someone it gets easier for hime to do it but it is also traumatizing him and he is now seeing the ghost of the one he killed.
