RL.4 Analyze the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings
I killed him
The theme took a dark turn when Macbeth killed his father to take the throne for himself. The text states "Here lay Duncan, His silver skin laced with his golden blood, And his gashed stabs looked like a breach in nature For ruin’s wasteful entrance; there the murderers, Steeped in the colors of their trade, their daggers, Unmannerly breached with gore."
RL.4 Analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning Analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on tone.
He was skin laced in his golden blood
The text that was selected seems like an observation of Duncan after he was murdered by Macbeth. It said that Duncan's skin laced with his "Golden" blood. He had stab wounds that looked terrible and was covered in blood. It also said that the murderers steeped in the colors of their trade meaning that the murderers were probably covered with a lot of evidence. The text states "There’s warrant in that theft Which steals itself when there’s no mercy left." Means that the murderer showed no mercy.
Conclusion/work on adding 4 category level (on the rubric) to your project
Do you still have the knife?!
The words used to develop the tone and the theme better is murder, no mercy, and etc.
Word choice is a big thing because if you just say that he stabbed someone then it doesn't give that much impact as saying that he murdered the king and his skin laced witch his golden blood.
So in conclusion what happened in act 2 is that he killed the king. He had an hallucination of a dagger moving towards the kings room and that when he knew that it was time to kill the king. He got super paranoid because he thought people heard him and also he took the knife with him.
