Metaphor / Personification

“That my keen knife see not the wound it makes”

This is a personification because it is saying that the knife is “keen” but a knife doesn’t have any feelings meaning it can not be “keen” and to be keen is a human characteristic making this a personification.

For “keen knife see not the wound it makes”  We would usually say it is the person that it harming the other not the knife.  Also a knife is not able to see anyway so it would never be able to see the wounds it makes.


Act 1, Scene 4

A room in Macbeth’s castle – Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth receives a letter from Macbeth about what happened at the heath and what the witches said about him becoming King and becoming the Thane of Cawdor.  She then was planning to kill the king because she thought that Macbeth did not have the guts to kill anyone and that she had the guts.  They then meet and Macbeth tells Lady Macbeth that King Duncan is coming for dinner.

Act 1, Scene 3

A heath – Three Witches, Macbeth and Banquo

The witches meet Macbeth and Banquo on a heath like it said at the start of the play “Upon the heath. There to meet with Macbeth.” And they are talking about how Macbeth is the Thane of Cawdor and that he will become king. Macbeth and Banquo debate over whether it is true or not until they meat Rosse and Angus who tell Macbeth that he will be the new Thane of Cawdor. So Macbeth then thought that what the witches were telling the truth.

Act 1, Scene 2

A camp near Forres – King Duncan, Malcolm, Donalbain, Lenox, With attendants.

The Captain is talking to Duncan about the battle and describes how Macbeth fought.  Duncan sentences the Thane of Cawdor to death and decides that Macbeth will become the new Thane of Cawdor.

The way you use punctuation and emojis can mean a different things and can show your relationship with the person

Texting has been around for many years now and we have developed new language and new ways of using punctuation. The way we use punctuation and change the meaning of word or the value of the word. For example if you are texting someone and you are listing ideas of where to eat like ” Dominoes?, Kebab??, Red Star???.” Having three question marks can signify that they think Red Star is what you might want the most. Rather than “Dominoes? Kebab? Redstar?” This would seem like they’re all equally as good.
