Resource 5 – Provocative Statements

A series of provocative statements to discuss with your pupils about the play:

  • Lady Macbeth is a more evil influence on her husband than the witches.
  • Macbeth is a coward. Lady Macbeth is brave.
  • Macbeth is mentally ill. He cannot be held responsible for his actions.
  • The Macbeths are the perfect married couple. They support each other at all times.
  • By the end of the play, Macbeth is simply a cruel butcher.
  • Macbeth gives up when his wife dies. He actively seeks and welcomes his own death.
