The witches told Macbeth that no man born from woman could kill him, but Macduff was born by Cesarean section meaning that he wasn't technically born naturally from woman.
How does Malcolm test Macduff's trustworthiness and loyalty? A. Malcolm pretends to be a greedy, lustful, and evil man. B. Malcolm has Macduff's wife and son murdered. C. Malcolm questions Ross about Macduff's reliability. D. Malcolm makes Macduff think he really did kill Duncan.
Malcom tests Macduff by saying he is going to be a horrible king. He says that this is a test to see if Macduff will continue to support him even if he was worse than Macbeth. If Macduff said he would then Malcolm would know him for a toady who would agree to anything. He then claims to be well-nigh perfect, and that he has never told a lie before the whopper he just told to Macduff. Yeah, right. Anyway, Macduff is prepared to go along with him because he would do anything to get rid of Macbeth.
What warning does the first apparition give Macbeth? A. Malcolm's army will attack his castle. B. He should be distrustful of his wife. C. He will be killed by Malcolm's sword. D. He must watch out for Macduff.
In Act 5 Scene 6 of the Shakespearean play, Macbeth [c. 1014-August 15, 1057] saw the combined forces of invading Englishmen and discontented Scotsmen advancing on his royal castle. They were camouflaged by plucked boughs that made Birnam Wood appear to move to Dunsinane Castle. In Act 5 Scene 8, Macbeth was killed by Macduff, who had been delivered by Caesarian section from a dead mother. In Act 4 Scene 1, Macbeth had heard the prophetic warnings of three apparitions in the witches' cavern. The first, an armed head, warned him to beware of Macduff. The second, a bloody child, warned him of his defeat at the hands of the man not born of woman. The third, a crowned child who held a tree in his hand, warned him of his downfall in the aftermath of the movement of Birnam Wood to Dunsinane.
Why is Macbeth upset when he sees Malcolm's army carrying branches from Birnam wood? A. Because the trees in Birnam wood helped protect the castle B. Because his wife will be sad that Birnam wood has been destroyed C. Because one of the witches' prophecies has come true D. Because he fears the army will set his castle on fire
What event in Act V suggests that Macbeth is so exhausted by murder and bloodshed that he is almost used to the pain of death? A. The realization that Macduff will be able to kill him B. The appearance of Banquo's ghost at the banquet C. The sight of Birnam wood approaching his castle D. The news that Lady Macbeth has killed herself
What does Macbeth's reaction to the news of his wife's death say about his state of mind? A. He is so upset that he loses his last hold on sanity and forces his men into a battle with Malcolm that they cannot win. B. He knows what he has done is wrong and wants to surrender to Malcolm's army and die honorably. C. He is unable to feel pain at the thought of death and is exhausted from all of the bloodshed. D. He believes strongly in his convictions and knows that he will have to continue to fight to remain king.
cbeth's reaction to the death of his wife is very different from what we, as an audience expect from a man who shared a very intimate and close understanding with his better half. Macbeth, early in the play, derived tremendous insipration from, and was heavily influenced by his wife, Lady Macbeth, who then, seemed to be one of the most ruthless, power-hungry female characters created by Shakespeare. When Macbeth finds out Lady Macbeth comitted suicide, he is emotionless, saying "she should have died hereafter" ( see act 5, scene 5). Macbeth is very calm, almost like he doesn't care at all. He says that she was going to die someday anyway. He has lost everything, and this does not bother him. On the other hand, you might view the reaction of Macbeth to his wife's death, as one of neutral remorse. He realized that he should be saddened by the event, but was too busy trying to protect himself.
Why does Malcolm lie about himself to Macduff? A. To test Macduff's trustworthiness and loyalty to him B. To show his evil qualities to Macduff C. To get Macduff to admit that he is loyal to Macbeth D. To force Macduff to return to his wife and son
Unlike his father who trusted too easily, Malcolm does not trust Macduff. He does not trust him because he thinks that Macduff may be secretly working for Macbeth. To test this theory he rambles lies giving examples of how he is not fit to be king. However, it is Macduff's polite reaction of disagreeing with Malcolm which makes Malcolm believe Macduff.
