Concerning your question about Shakespeare's Macbeth, I won't write paragraphs for you, since the assignment requires you to put it in your own words. Instead, I'll bullet some details that will help you write your assignment. I'll deal with the beginning of the play, for the most part.
- Macbeth is a captain serving King Duncan of Scotland. He is a great warrior and loyal to Duncan, as far as a reader knows.
- The witches like to play around and are up to something. They plan to meet Macbeth, though Macbeth doesn't know it.
- Macbeth and Banquo are friends and seem to get along well.
- The grotesque witches predict that Macbeth will be king, and that Banquo's heirs will be kings.
- Banquo laughs the predictions off, but Macbeth is highly interested. He almost immediately begins to think of what it will take for him to be king--assassinating Duncan.
