English (Macbeth)

posted by .

I'm looking to simply answer these questions on Macbeth. Problem is, I really honestly don't understand the entire book.

1. Explain the significance of the pre-murder sililoquy which beings, "Is this a dagger I see before me "(II.i.30)?

2. Provide a quotation which reveals Macbeth's reaction to the murder of Duncan, and comment on what suggests about Macbeth's mental state

3. Briefly summarize the plans of Malcolm and Donalbain after their father's murder. What are the two most significant results of the plans?

5. "Come thick night and pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell." This is one of the many cloaking images (of hiding, disguise, subterfuge) in the play. Using another example, comment on the effect of these images on our understanding of the play and/or character.

Thanks.
