Soliloquy Macbeth, Act I

A soliloquy is a conversation with ones self. In plays, it is sometimes directed at the audience. Usually lengthy, the character speaks their inner-most thoughts aloud. It is delivered by the character while on the stage alone.

At the beginning of Act I, scene vii, Macbeth vacillates between wanting to kill King Duncan and being content with remaining the Thane of Cawdor. His indecision ends with him deciding that he will not kill King Duncan. Its not a lack of ambition, but a fear of retribution that keeps him from plotting against his king.

This activity involves creating your own soliloquy. Choose one of the situations below. Write at least 10 lines that show your own vacillation and indecision. Like Macbeth, weigh the consequences of each action. Part of the process will be to see the other viewpoint put your self in the opposite position of your first reaction. Show indecision, but make a decision by the end.

The situations:

1. You are lost in a desert with your best friend. You are on the verge of death, when suddenly a man on a camel appears. He only has enough food for one of you, and you must make the choice of who gets the food since your friend is too weak to argue either way.

2. Youve broken your mothers favorite lamp, and she is due home any minute. You know your mother would ground you for two weeks if she found out. You also know your brother has been disciplined for throwing things around the house before, so if you blamed him, your mother would believe you. Do you blame him or take the blame yourself?

3. Youve just been elected President of the Senior class, and youve shared the news with all of your friends and family. Later, while you are studying the results, you realize that someone made an error in counting the ballots and you actually lost the race by one vote. The person who actually won is someone whom you know would do a terrible job. Do you point out the error by telling the advisor or keep quiet?

We will be sharing our work.

To help you get started:

Choose a problem.

Make a decision.

List the pros and cons of your decision and the consequences.

PROS CONS CONSEQUENCES

Are you happy with your first decision? Make it final or change it.

Then write!!!

Your grade will be applied to the writing component of your marking period grade. I will grade you in the following manner:

Did you choose a situation?

Do you clearly show vacillation between the two sides?

Do you clearly show the pros and cons of each side?

Is the writing itself clear and understandable?

Did you make a final decision?

The Tragedy of Macbeth, Act I

Identifying Character Traits

In the first act you were introduced to five key characters in the play. In the squares below, jot down a few phrases about each character. Put their names below the squares. Then draw lines between these characters and write a brief description of their relationship to each other.

The Tragedy of Macbeth, Act I

The Criminal Mind

When Shakespeare first shows us Macbeth, we see a hero, a man who would fight to the death for the king. Throughout Act I, Shakespeare gradually introduces the moral struggle developing in Macbeths mind. The evil side is threatening to overwhelm the good side by the end of the act. In each column below, write events, dialogue, or thoughts that reflect these changes in Macbeth in Act I.

The Good Macbeth

Neutral/Ambiguous

The Evil Macbeth

1. Do you think Macbeth would have changed if the witches had not appeared? Explain.

2. Do you think most people are as susceptible to temptation as Macbeth? Explain why or why not.
