Macbeth - relationship between M and LM
Terms in this set (14)
M says things like 'my dearest partner of greatness', 'my dearest love'. LM is brutally manipulative. She sounds like the witches when she greets M: 'Great Glamis, worthy Cawdor, greater than both by the all-hail hereafter'
What is a difference between the way LM speaks to M and the way M speaks to LM?
Because she is hoping that M will react to them and want to challenge them and prove his manhood/loyalty to her.
Why are LM's manipulations deceptive?
She coaches M to 'look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under't'.
What are the first 2 occasions of LM manipulating M?
She says 'was the hope drunk wherein you dressed yourself? From such time, such i account thy love'.
Which quote is one of the strongest examples of LM's manipulation?
1. The manipulations
2. Lacks love and is unsupportive
3. Revolves around plan of murder
4. Deceptive to each other
5. Don't listen to each other
6. M doesn't seem devastated when she dies (more despondent)
Give 3 reasons why their relationship is toxic and dysfunctional.
'How easy it is then. A little water clears us of this deed'
What does LM say when she belittles both the deed as well as M's natural reaction to it?
Shows strong friendship between Banquo and Macduff - how things should be. Highlights M and LM's toxic relationship.
How could the quote 'Dear Duff' be used in an essay based on M and LM's relationship?
Sounds like LM's manipulations. She has taught him well.
What is noticeable when M speaks to the murderers?
'Be innocent of the knowledge dearest chuck' - decides to kill Banquo without her knowledge.
How do we know that M is no longer listening to LM?
No. She continues her manipulations 'What's done, is done'.
Even though LM is feeling unsure in the quote 'Noughts had, all's spent where our desire is got without content', does she confide in M?
'You lack the seasons of all natures, sleep'. The suggests she can't work out which season he is - which personality.
M is no longer under her influence.
What quote tells us that LM no longer recognises M, and why does it?
Their relationship seems genuine and loving: 'if he were dead, you'd weep for him'.
'All my pretty ones? Did you say all? O hell-kite! All?'
Why would you compare the Macduffs to the Macbeths in this essay theme? What quotes support this?
'She should have died hereafter' - inconvenient.
'Out, out brief candle!' - life is fragile, short lived and insignificant.
M seems distracted by the news rather than disconsolate (great sadness)
