Quite possible Ganu. They may ask you to analyze Macbeth's soliloquies. I mean his state of mind or transformation in character. MAY!! I'm not sure!

PostSubject: Re: some essay questions Mon Mar 01, 2010 8:46 pm

These are few questions i got from past papers.. Take a look


1. Choose 2 of the following characters and show their importance in the play: Banquo, Duncan, Lady Macduff, Porter.

2. Which scene in Macbeth do you find most impressive. Give reasons.

3. Show, close reference to particular scenes, what witches contribute to effect of Macbeth.

4. How does Banquo take the witches’ prophecy and what impression do you get of his character?

5. Malcolm calls Lady Macbeth “fiend-like queen”. Does this seem to you a good description?

6. Outline stages of Macbeth’s decline, showing what, in your opinion, were the cause of the decline.

7. Consider how Shakespeare builds the relationship of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth between the murder of Duncan and of the play.

8. Macbeth in meeting the witches has to struggle against no external power, but only with his own nature; they bring to light the evil side of his character. Discuss this statement with reference to role of witches and Macbeth’s character in the crimes he commits.

9. Which scene in the play Macbeth has made the greatest impression on your mind? Describe it vividly giving reasons for your choice.

10. Show how Macbeth’s soliloquies and conversations with his wife reveal aspects of his character of which otherwise we should be ignorant.
