Journal Writing #2

How does character influence one's reaction to a promise of power?

    Character influence one's reaction to a promise of power because if one has a desire to do something and make something of him or herself they are the one who sets their goals and their personality to become what they want to do.

Learning Activities:

 Make a list of words or expressions that describe the witches' appearance.
- In lines 44-50 Banquo remarks that they look like women, but he won't call them women, because they have beards.

What are the three prophecies that the witches’ promise Macbeth? Banquo?

The witches hail Macbeth as "Thane of Glamis," "Thane of Cawdor and "King hereafter." Banquo as the father of future kings.  These are the prophecies that the witches’ promise Macbeth and Banquo.

 Pick 2-4 lines from line 54-65 that explain Banquos' reaction to the prophecy

Banquo begin to deny what they have seen. Banquo speculates that the witches were illusory, "bubbles" of the earth.

What news has Ross brought to Banquo immediately after the witches' prophecies? Why is the interlude important to the development of the play?

Ross and Angus deliver the news that's not news to us: The traitorous Thane of Cawdor is to be executed, and Macbeth is to be given his title. What is interesting is how Macbeth turns this unsurprising news into a sign that he is destined to be king.

 In Macbeth's first aside in lines 140-155, identify expressions or lines that indicate his true reaction to the Witches’ prophecies. Use the following double-entry journal format to respond.
Yours Commentary
i.e. The supernatural so soliciting can not be ill..(line 144).  M seems to believe there is no evil intention in the witches prophecies
i.e. “If chance will have me King, why, chance may crown me, Without my stir.  M remarks to himself that if the witches' prophecies are right, he won't have to do a thing to become king.  If he is to be King.

Scene IV

Aim: To continue the discussion of how the witches' prophecies affect Macbeth and Banquo.

Learning Activities:

 What is ironic about Ducan’s comment on former Thane of Cawdor,
“ There’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face!
He was a gentleman on whom I built
An absolute trust”

Duncan’s comment on former Thane of Cawdor is ironic because he is saying that there was no hint of what his mind was thinking and plotting when he attacked Duncan. What is so ironic is that he has no idea what is going on in Macbeth’s head and that Macbeth is planning to murder him to become King.

  What did Duncan give to Macbeth as reward for his bravery?  To Banquo?

Duncan rewards Macbeth by making Thane of Cawdor and telling him that he will be visiting at Inverness at Macbeth’s castle.  Duncan thanks Banquo by hugging him and tells him that he will hold him in his heart.

 What announcement did Duncan make in this scene?  Why are they crucial to the development of the play?

Duncan now announces that his oldest son, Malcolm, is heir to throne, and has therefore been given the title of Prince of Cumberland. And then tells Macbeth that he is coming to visit him at Inverness, Macbeth’s castle.  This is crucial to the development of the play because now Macbeth can go threw with his plan to kill Duncan and his son so he can become King.

Quotations  Your Commentary
    The prince of Cumberland! That is
A step
   On which I must fall down, or
Else o’erleap
   For in my way it lies.  Stars, hide
Your fines;
   Let not light see my black and
Deep desires:
  The eye wink at the hand; yet let
That be
  Which the eye fears, when it is
Done, to see
M is saying that Malcolm, too, is now between him and the throne. Which is something that he has to deal with if he wants to become King.  So now for M to become King he must murder both Duncan and Malcolm. He wants the stars to go out, so that no one can see what it is he wants, not even himself. His own eye should "wink," that is, blind itself to what his own hand wants to do. "Let that be" he says, because he wants the thing done, even if afterwards, "when it is done," his own eye would be afraid to look at what his hand had done.

Journal Writing:

In your view, what is the wife’s role in helping her husband fulfil his ambition?

 What did she advise Macbeth to do?

Lady Macbeth advised Macbeth to act as though the innocent person and not lead on to any suspicion because his face can be read and all will know that he was guilty.

Scene VI

Aim: Why is this scene a good example of irony-dramatic and verbal?

Learning Activities:

 What does Banquo reveal about his character in his observations about the nesting habits of birds?

The nests that are hanging ("pendant") high on the castle walls are the beds of the birds, the place ("procreant cradle") where they make love and produce chicks and keep their chicks safe. Thus, on the outside of the castle, everything looks homey and cozy, but inside the castle, Duncan will be murdered.

Do you consider it strange that Lady Macbeth greets the King alone?  Although it is not mentioned in the scene, but what do you think is the reason that Lady Macbeth gives Duncan to excuse his absence?

No, I do not consider it strange that Lady Macbeth greets the King alone.  The excuse Lady Macbeth would of given Duncan to excuse Macbeth’s absence is that Macbeth is very exhausted and needed to rest so she sent him to his chambers to soak in a hot bath to refresh himself for his company.

Scene VII

Aim: What is the conflict that Macbeth experiences before the murder of Duncan?  How does Lady Macbeth persuade Macbeth to do what she wishes?

                                               Sleep Walking

     In Shakespeare's Macbeth, her gentlewoman sleepwalking finds Lady Macbeth.  In Medieval times people did not know what sleeping was they thought it had something to do

    Sleep walking is a sleeping disorder characterized by walking or other activity while seemingly still asleep.

    The sleep walking activity may include simply sitting up and appearing awake while actually asleep, getting up and walking around, or complex activities such as moving furniture, going to the bathroom, dressing and undressing, and similar activities. Some people even drive a car while
Actually asleep. The episode can be very brief (a few seconds or minutes) or can last for 30 minutes or longer.

    One common misconception is that a sleepwalker should not be awakened. It is not dangerous to awaken a sleepwalker, although it is common for the person to be confused or disoriented for a short time on awakening. Another misconception is that a person cannot be injured when sleep walking. Actually, injuries caused by such things as tripping and loss of balance are common for sleepwalkers.

    Sleep walking occurs at any age, but it occurs most often in children aged 6 to 12 years old. It may occur in younger children, in adults, or in the elderly, and it appears to run in families.

    In children, the cause is usually unknown but may also be related to fatigue, prior sleep loss, or anxiety. In adults, sleep walking is usually associated with a disorder of the mind but may also be seen with reactions to drugs and/or medications and alcohol, and medical conditions such as partial complex seizures. In the elderly, sleep walking may be a symptom of an organic brain syndrome or REM behavior disorders.

    Symptoms of sleep walking are: eyes open during sleep, may have blank facial expression, may sit up and appear awake during sleep, walking during sleep, other detailed activity during sleep, any sort, no recall of the event upon awaking, confusion, disorientation on awakening, leep talking is incomprehensible and non-purposeful.

    Usually no specific treatment for sleep walking is needed. Safety measures may be necessary to prevent injury. This may include modifying the environment by moving objects such as electrical cords or furniture to reduce tripping and falling. Stairways may need to be blocked off with a gate. In some cases, short-acting tranquilizers have been helpful in reducing the incidence of sleep walking.

    Sleep walking may or may not reduce with age. It usually does not indicate a serious disorder, although it can be a symptom of other disorders.

    What we know now about sleep walking people in medieval times did not know although it can be a symptom of other disorders.
