"Two truths are told As happy prologues to the swelling act Of the imperial theme" (221, Macbeth).
"False face must hide what the false heart doth know" (230, Macbeth).
"Be bloody,bold, and resolute. Laugh to scorn the Power of man, for none of women born shall harm Macbeth" (263, Macbeth).
This quote makes the theme "ambition used irresponsibly, can corrupt minds" emerge because Macbeth is realizing that he will be King someday. The witches told Macbeth that he would become the Thane of Cawdor and very soon after, he did. Macbeth thinks that if the witches were right about this, that they would be right about everything. He is gaining his ambition for power and soon, that will take over him. He is becoming corrupt because he now knows he will be king and now he is willing to do anything to fulfill his promise.
Tone of text
"The time is free. I see thee compassed with thy kingdom’s pearl" (The Tragedy of Macbeth, 289).
This quote is developing the theme by Macbeth trying to make everyone think that he is innocent but in reality, he knows he isn't. Macbeth is deceiving everyone and blaming others for all the horrible stuff he did. There are only a few people that know what Macbeth really is.
"Thy bones are marrowless; thy blood is cold" (The Tragedy of Macbeth, 255).
This quote is also developing the theme because Macbeth is so corrupted that he starts listening to witches and apparitions. Macbeth starts believing what they say because he already became Thane of Corridor so he has no reason to stop believing them now.
"Be lion-mettled, proud, and take no careWho chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are" (The Tragedy of Macbeth, 263).
The tone of this part of the scene is jubilation and freedom because Macbeth had been slain. Macduff killed Macbeth and kept his head as evidence. Macduff had finally avenged his family. Macduff is jubilant because he is proud of slaying the beast known as Macbeth. Macduff feels free because the reign of Macbeth's terror is over. When Macduff says "Hail! King of Scotland", he is announcing that Macbeth's reign of tyranny is finally over.
This text is a great example of figurative language because Macbeth's bones are not actually marrowless. What he means by this figurative language is that Macbeth has no soul and is very heartless. Shakespeare uses this to convey who Macbeth truly is.
This part of the text is talking about how lions eat their problems and the apparitions are trying to convince Macbeth to be more like a lion, and be more violent. The apparitions are corrupting Macbeth and transforming him into and evil, satanic ruler. This figurative language is very Satanic because the apparitions are manipulating Macbeth to think more like a murderer than a ruler. Macbeth was corrupted by the apparitions who were trying to make Macbeth evil.
