Choose an event from the play. Focus on the purpose it serves in the story. Consider how the story would change if that event was altered. Form your ideas into a paragraph of at least five sentences. Make sure to include supporting evidence from the play. Some events to consider: The weird sisters' predictions for Macbeth and Banquo Macbeth's murder of Banquo The appearance of Banquo's ghost at Macbeth's coronation dinner

    The first witch greets Macbeth as the thane of Glamis, which was his official title. The second witch, however, says All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, thane of Cawdor! The third then says All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter! These two predictions are a shock to Macbeth. He does not know that the current thane of Cawdor has been deemed a traitor and Duncan has ordered his title be given to Macbeth. When Banquo hears these predictions, he asks the witches to speak of his future as well, to which the third witch says Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none: So all hail, Macbeth and Banquo! This prediction is what eventaully leads to Macbeth's plot to kill both Banquo and Banquo's son. the witch predictions

    After prophesying that Macbeth will become king, the witches tell Banquo that he will not be king himself, but that his descendants will be. Later, Macbeth in his lust for power sees Banquo as a threat and has him murdered; Banquo's son, Fleance, escapes.

    can think of three reasons why Banquo's ghost might visit Macbeth. Of course, you should realize that this is speculation and the play actually gives no information about why the ghost visits. For revenge. Banquo wants to make Macbeth uncomfortable, and that is an understatement. Banquo wants to terrorize Macbeth. He appears to him as payback. He wants to let Macbeth know that he is still around. To gloat. Fleance escaped. That means Banquo's children will be kings, not Macbeth's. To sabatage. If Banquo can freak out Macbeth, maybe the other characters will know for sure that Macbeth has set up all these murders. By the way, this scene is just a feast, not Macbeth's coronation. That takes place earlier.
