answer 1
Answer 1

This shows Macbeth’s false confidence. He ignores the truth of what the messenger tells him

answer 2

a)The sound of women crying

This provides a contrast to Macbeth’s cold hearted response and highlights how he has been destroyed morally

answer 3
Answer 3
  • What does Macbeth say used to frighten him?

c) Sad news and people shouting

  • “The time has been, my sense would have cooled/ To hear a night shriek…….I have supped full with horrors;/ Direness, familiar to my slaughter house thoughts,/ Cannot once start me.”

This reminds of Act 2, Scene 2 when Macbeth jumped at the slightest noise. He has become cold and heartless.

answer 5
Answer 5
  • What does Macbeth say he feels about life now?
  • Life is pointless and everyone is on earth for a short, unhappy time

Out, out, brief candle!/ Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player/ that struts and frets upon the stage,/ And then is heard no more: it is a tale/ Told by an idiot..”

answer 6
Answer 6
  • How does Macbeth feel at the end of the scene.
  • Fearful but determined to fight to the death

Macbeth could have decided to stay inside and wait out the siege, it seems he may be willing to die.

“I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,/ And wish the estate o’ the world were now undone.”

This means I am beginning to be tired of life and wish the ordered universe would fall apart.
