In which ways does Shakespeare build up a mood of tension and horror in the scenes? Essay
I think that Shakespeare built up a mood of tension and horror in the vistas by apply particular motion pictures with a kind of situation Will he? system he? which builds up the tension incredibly. Act I scene septenary is the scene where Macbeth makes the decision even if not his own, that he will eradicate King Duncan. Though Macbeth wasnt ready for Lady Macbeths fury. She c on the wholes him a coward and mocks his masculinity,When you durst do it, thus you were a manMentally beaten by his wife and persuaded by her mockery, Macbeth makes his makes his last(a) verdict. This part creates tension in the melodic line of Macbeths uncertainty. Act II, scene I starts off the horror and the tension, of the murder, by using that point in time as midnight. The witches havent just disturbed Macbeth, as Banquo grasps his sword whilst crossing the courtyard as he pictured a noise. You can tell that Macbeth is distressed as he answers very little to Banquo and it clearly shows when he le aves. When Macbeth hallucinates, seeing a dagger before him,A dagger of the mind, a false insertionShakespeare increases the tension in this scene by using language that is dear of references to origin and darkness,And on thy blade, and dungeon, gouts of blood,Which was not so before?The dagger goes then returns, besides on its return Macbeth notices that it is of his own dagger covered in blood which increases the horror, the handle pointing towards his hand, inviting him towards King Duncans chamber. The dagger was basically bragging(a) him a step by step guide to committing regicide. Macbeths final words before regicide are very dramatic,I go, and it is doneThis creates images of what is rough to come. Lady Macbeth goes and gets the scene ready for Macbeth by framing the guards, she drugs them and takes their daggers. In bet II, scene II the murder of King Duncan takes place and fear and sadness dominates the scene. Macbeth returns with the guards two daggers which he was meant to of left at the scene to frame the guards, this creates both tension and horror as the audience doesnt know if they will be found out. Lady Macbeth then takes pull strings of the situation by taking them back herself. When she returns she is fuming and begins to call her husband a coward. But to add to the tension Macbeth cant wash the blood off his hands which shows regret and guilt Macbeth compares his hands to the seas of Neptune,Will all great Neptune Ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? verbalise that his blood will turn Neptunes Ocean from green to red,The multitudinous seas incarnadine,Making the green one, redBut then Lady Macbeth tries to quieten him by sayingMy hands are of your colour but I shame to wear a heart so whiteThey hear knocking at a door so Lady Macbeth tells him to go and put on his night gown and forget what has just happened but it is easier said than done Macbeth believes that he is outside the Christian world as he couldnt say amen also th at he will neer sleep again because regicide is a sin. The knocking at the end of the scene creates suspense because it plays on the audiences fear of discovery.
