And whatever he touched in that rich fortress of his soul sprang into golden life: as the years passed, the fruit trees—the peach, the plum, the cherry, the apple—grew great and bent beneath their clusters. His grape vines thickened into brawny ropes of brown and coiled down the high wire fences of his lot, and hung in a dense fabric, upon his trellises, roping his domain twice around. They climbed the porch end of the house and framed the upper windows in thick bowers. And the flowers grew in rioting glory in his yard—the velvet-leaved nasturtium, slashed with a hundred tawny dyes, the rose, the snowball, the redcupped tulip, and the lily. The author uses sensory details in this excerpt to create images of excess and riches, to suggest Gant’s interest in materialism. shades and barriers, to suggest Gant’s need for privacy. colorful sceneries, to suggest Gant’s artistic aptitude. bountiful harvests, to suggest Gant’s agricultural success.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

1) The witches predictions foreshadow what might happen because they are predictions that are at the beginning of the play and in the middle too, so the tension is building up as to why the witches said them.

2) Macbeth’s reactions to the first 3 predictions were no other than shocked and confused. The other 3 predictions, he didn’t care because he thought he was unbeatable and nothing and nobody can stop him!! But his ambitions so go down hill as his ambitions take control over him. He is a ‘brave solider’ at the beginning of the play, but turns into a ‘dangerous’ criminal near the end of the play. Macbeth’s ambitions are his biggest weakness of everything.

3) Lady Macbeth is a clever, but deep down she is cruel as her husband is. She influenced her husband to kill Duncan, even if Macbeth didn’t want too. The term ‘coward’ was used to make Macbeth have the courage to kill Duncan. Also Lady Macbeth wanted to change from being a woman to being a man, ‘Come to my woman’s breast and take my milk for gall’ and ‘unsex me here’ meaning she want to have the courage to kill Duncan. She wants man power because women were know as the ‘weak’ ones and Lady Macbeth wanted to be the strongest one.

4) I don’t know about this one, but I have some ideas about some thought.

– Macbeth feels guilty, remorse, from killing Duncan. (He has a guilty conscience).
– He starts having hallucinations, especially after the death of Banquo. He hears voices after the murder of Duncan, ‘Macbeth does murder sleep’ and this creeps him out. And the dagger that leads him to the kings room.
– His kingship was bad to begin with.
– Macbeth’s Fate and Free will change throughout the play.

I hope this helps as much as it will help me!!! I’m sorry if I didn’t help with question 4, I didn’t know that one, but I did the other 3!!
