RL.4Analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning
In scene 2 act 3 Macbeth is ambitious because he wants to become the king because he was told by the three witches that if the king died that he could become the king. Macbeth is also very determined because when he first said that he wanted to become the king he was determined to kill the king since he first was told by the witches. Him wanting to become the king might have something to do with Lady Macbeth because Lady Macbeth wants to become the Queen based off of some examples given in Act 1 such as " It is too full o' th' milk of human kindness To catch the nearest way to the throne"1.5.16–18).

One of the Many examples of connotative language is "The Bell invites me." (2.1.63). This example is connotative because it shows that it isnt macbeths fault that he killed King Duncan because Macbeth will make a better king. It also shows that Macbeth doesnt want Duncan to hear the bell because then he will know that he will be murdered. One of the Examples of Figurative language in Macbeth is "ill all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood Clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather The multitudinous seas incarnadine, Making the green one red." (2.3.60-64). This is an example of a hyperbole becasue Lady macbeth is talking about how she feels guilty for killing King Duncan. One example of technical Language used in Macbeth is "Fair is foul and foul is fair."(1.1.30) This is an example of technical language because it can be best understood by a person that is a proffesional at literature all though it still can be understood by other people.
