What are some more quotes of dramatic significance in macbeth?post as much as possible please.
Dramatic significance may apply to many different dramatic developments including to quotes that are important to plot development, or to quotes that show character development, or even to quotes that explain offstage events.
These are three of the more important quotes, in my opinion, that show dramatic significance.
Act 1.3 Line 38 - Macbeth: "So fair and foul a day I have not seen." Sets the theme of appearance versus reality and foreshadows upcoming paradoxes.
Act 5.1 Line 39 - Lady Macbeth: "Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?" Foreshadows Lady Macbeth's mental breakdown because of the weight of her guilt.
Act 5.5 Lines 23-26: Macbeth: "Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and fret his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more." Develops the themes of the futility and the brevity of frail life.
But, of course, there are MANY more important, dramatically significant quotes throughout the play.
There is a good description of dramatic significance supplied by the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
