Analyse the ways in which Shakespeare evokes contradictory feeling towards his characters
Captain speaks of “Brave Macbeth- Well he deserves that name.” Fighting in battle against traitors. This presents the audience a persona of a manly bold Macbeth without Macbeth even entering the stage.
On the contrary though, Lady Macbeth questions whether Macbeth is a man “are you a man” and Macbeth cannot bring himself to return to Duncan’s chambers to retrieve his daggers due to the fear he feels. He speak of hallucinations and voices.
The actions in these scenes of others speaking of Macbeth and Macbeth in person contradict each other so that the audience has to draw conclusions on Macbeth’s personality themselves.
