How does imagery cause tension in the play Macbeth? it need to have a certain quote...
1 Answer | add yours
My favorite examples of imagery in Macbeth are found in the speeches made by supernatural characters (witches, ghosts, etc.) and in Lady Macbeth's speeches. You could find imagery in either that lead to tension, but the classic is the line in Act IV about Macbeth not being vanquished until "Great Birnam Wood" marches against him, and then Macbeth's answer. The images are so clear, and it's easy to say, "That couldn't happen…" Then it does.
