you know 10 and 11 welcome to your analysis of Macduff from William Shakespeares Macbeth in preparation for GCSE English literature exam basically then he is the theatre faith he is loyal to King Duncan and very upset by his death he remains a loyal even after the death of King Duncan he defies Macbeth by refusing to attend the coronation and the banquet he also puts his family at risk by meeting a malcolm in England and he kills Macbeth his role in the play then we are introduced to him in act 1 scene 6 but he has no lines in this scene where other characters are praising Macbeth Macduff is silent and this is important because theres a scene later on where again Macduff has very little to see and its when they are preparing to battle Macbeth at the end of the play so because he doesnt have many lines when Macduff speaks usually the characters and the audience will take note in active scene 3 he is the character that discovers that Duncan has been murdered and this is very fitting considering hes loyal and we get all horah horah horah tongue nor heart cannot conceive nor name they more sacrilege murder hath broke off the Lords anointed to Temple and store then to the life of the building Im going to analyze that in a moment and when Lady Macbeth and is he refers to her as a gentle lady and he suggests that her feminine nature is too gentle that she cant bear the sight of Duncan and the dramatic irony and theres an irony in the initial emotions of the tomb the dramatic IV begin that we know she is part of the reason that the king is dead but the irony is also in their emotions as well how overly emotional market offers in comparison to Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and he screams for bank or bank or bank for our royal masters murdered Macbeth makes a speech about Duncan and pivotally and antique naughty it is Macduff who mentions the murdering of the guards and asks Macbeth why he would do that and he says wherefore did you saw and he years old with a character that naught this is Lady Macbeth fient and he says look to the lady so in this scene this act 2 scene 3 its massively important so Duncan discovers the murder and screams he doesnt think Lady Macbeth will be able to stomach viewing the king he screams for Banquo calling calling Duncan the royal master he questions why Macbeth would murder the gods which is a good question to ask and then he is there on that nordicist Lady Macbeth fiend so big scene in terms of my book Macduff and that Court as I said all horah horah horah tongue nor heart cannot conceive nor name the more savage murder hath brought the Lords anointed temple and stool then to the life of the building so as a character who has little to see he holds power when he speaks and we say how emotionally he is upon discovering the death of Duncan and this serves to contrast with Macbeth who obviously shows no emotion really in terms of the killing of Duncan because he does it doesnt he and we get that triple abstract noun of horror horror horror again think about the connotations of that word and he states that the king is the Lords the Lords anointed temple and this shows this metaphor shows that he believes that Kings receive their power from God so again we have that reference to the context of the play that is the great chin Afyon and we get that metaphor that that duncan is the life of the building so here we see the respect that Macduff has for Duncan and the loyalty he has towards him so when were talking about loyalty as one of his characteristics weve got your royal fathers murdered look at the repetition of the adjective royal because he

also says Banquo Banquo our royal masters murdered and again what this adjective has connotations of and then weve got the amount of language of father and we see the connection that Madoff has to Duncan and his emotion remember he is an emotional character unlike Macbeth and then the fact that he refers to dog and his master shows us that he does respect the great chain of being and and order if you need any more details on order and disorder please check out my video and then he gives us the short I am NOT treacherous and thats a massive line because actually what it does is it its almost a mirror image of exactly what Macbeth is because he is he has committed treason here approach the chamber and destroy your site for the new Gorgon do not bid me speak see and then speak yourselves so this is a court again about approaching the chamber where where Duncan is now the reference to a Gorgon is the idea that say and duncan dead will freeze people with horror and it has a link to the Gorgon Medusa who turned people to stored if they look directly at her and Gorgons and mythological creatures so perhaps this emphasizes marked officers despair and also the Medusa link has connotations of death so we realized that the sight of duncan lying dead is horrific um all saw earlier and Im going to bring this up in a second he talks about ringing the alarm bell and this is a warning and it echoes the knocking at the gate and this is hugely important because it acts as a symbol for the outside world intruding on the murder so obviously when Lady Macbeth and market birth have killed donggun the outside world arent privy to it and now as soon as we get the knocking at the gate and the alarm bell the outside world becomes involved and therefore Scapa I suppose the overall plans of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth so the court with the ring the bell is here murder and trees and Banquo and Donna B and Malcolm a week shake off this downy sleep deaths counterfeit and look on death itself or pop and see the great dooms image Malcolm Banquo as from your graves rise up and walk I sprites to countenance this horror ring the bell theres a few things in here obviously weve got again the emotion of Macduff when he scream and murder and treason but weve got the reference to sleep and again the fact that a bank warden will be in a mark and can sleep again Kant writes the fact that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth absolutely cant now and then we get this simile as from your graves rise up and walk like sprites and he urges Malcolm and bungle to see what has happened and this foreshadowing really in this reference to Bangor because the this idea that that he should be a ghost is exactly what happens to or when hes murdered and he and he is there but the banquet remember MUC macbeth hallucinates doesnt eat so it also serves to be a reminder of the supernatural elements that are at play weve got a lot of references to the supernatural namely the witches if you need the supernatural video please check it out on my youtube channel but also in this quotation weve got the single word doom and this is the link to doomsday and doomsday was the end of time and again we get the expression of my dogs utter disbelief and his loyalty and his grief in this that he that he would refer to the end of time because of the death of the king and again I know Ive mentioned it quite a few times it takes us back to what people believed in at the time which was the great chain of being the fact that everything had an order and when this order is disrupted chaos ensues market off also

tells Ross that the murder was the dead and they were killed by Macbeth he also thinks that Malcolm and Donalbain have policed suspicion on themselves by fleeing and will get the court they were suborned Malcolm and Donalbain the Kings two sons stolen away in fled which puts upon them suspicion of the deed and then mocked off himself says hes going to go to Fife and his family instead of going to the coronation aisle to Fife so again we see him defy Macbeth orders he doesnt go to the coronation and he doesnt go to the banquet Macduff is then in England with Malcolm in Act four scene three and weve learned earlier that Macduff has refused to help Macbeth when Malcolm has gathered forces against him so again Macduff he assures his allegiance with modem and supports the Divine Right of Kings yes and we get this let us rather hold fast the mortal sort and like good god sorry like good men bestride our downfall and birthed in each new morn new widows howl new orphans cry new so well strike heaven on a fierce that it resounds as if it felt with Scotland and yelled out like syllable of dollar so the translation is on the right there and we see his loyalty to his country now which is obviously Scotland and he wants this exaggeration the use of hyperbole here is this idea that until it sounds like heaven itself Theo Scotlands peon so what were finding out here through mocked off signs is the tyranny of Macbeth that he has ruined the country of Scotland through his rule and the way that he rules which as we know is tyrannous he is called the time and by the end of the play and we see here that Macduff pledges his allegiance to Malcolm and Scotland and the Divine Right of Kings and how brave he is in the sense that he is willing to defend it against Macbeth you know this brief image here of defending the homeland shows us that hes honorable doesnt it fittingly and quite interestingly it is marked off that refers to Macbeth is a devil as well so we get not in the legions of horrid hell can come a devil more damned in evils to top Macbeth in that line youve got your alliteration in the horrid hell youve got your reference to hell youve got your reference to the devil and the reference to the Damned so theres a lot of language and there we can analyze and this proves as I said earlier marked off slightly to Malcolm it outlines Macbeth as a devilish leader compared to anyone so weve got this use of exaggeration again so even before the murder of his family marked off believes that Macbeth is a tyrant and because these two currents contrast with one another then its fitting that it would be mocked off to point this out Macbeth is feared throughout Scotland and then this as I say this exaggeration is hyperbole naturally Macbeth is not as evil as cien but what marcador does here is evey it erases the terrible deeds that market Beth has committed and is willing to commit because of greed and because of over ambition and the quotation there just to show his greed is boundless in temperance in nature is a tyranny it hath been the untimely emptying of the happy throne and fall of many kings but fear not yet to take upon you what is yours you may convey your pleasures in a spacious plenty and yet seem called the time you may saw hoodwink we have willing dmz nor there cannot be that vulture in you to devour so many as will degree in this dedicate themselves finding it so inclined your translations on the right you need but Ive just got a quick analysis the beginning of the court then the boundless intemperance in nature is a tyranny it hath been the untimely emptying of the happy throne and

fall of many kings it almost certainly points out one of the flaws of Macbeth that boundless in temperance is greed and being overly ambitious and obviously the issues that come with that dont forget that if youre doing my breath as the tragic evil that is his flaw if you need my video on my path as a tragic hero its on the YouTube channel and then we get the metaphor untimely emptying of the happy throne and it outlines the result of Tiffany and this own word and timely seemingly refers to the disorder of the Divine Right of Kings and also it references that makarov is untimely ripped from his mothers womb so weve got a connection here about what happens when you disrupt the order and what happens if you let ambition rule your heart and your head and then we get the foreshadowing of the fall of many kings because Macbeth will eventually die okay so when Macduffs family are killed he responds with he has no children all my pretty ones did you see all or Hellkite all what all my pretty chickens and their dam at one fell swoop the suggestion here is that this refers to Macbeth he has no children and theres an implication that only a man with no children would do such a thing we see Macduff being emotional when he cries out pretty ones pretty chickens and this section serves to contrast Macduff with Macbeth once again because where we see the vulnerability and humanity of Macduff we see the hairlessness in the inhumanity of Macbeth and Macduff says I must also feel it as a man so we do have again mocked off is in touch with his emotions isnt he hes not scared to be emotional and a plea is fitting that it is mocked off who restores the order of the Kings and reveals Macbeth to be a Dewar fish thief in a giant robe so other than loyalty and emotion weve got another key characteristic of Macduff and that is bravery we get the following quotations now the time of help your eye in Scotland would create soldiers so basically hes seen here now is the time we need your help your presence in Scotland would inspire people to fight this is Malcolm asking Macduff to fight for Scotland and weve got this your eye in Scotland would create soldiers weve got this idea that he will inspire or the men and other soldiers to fight and then we get front-to-front bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself within my sword the length this is Macduff when he is ready to fight Macbeth and he remember weve said it before he risks his own life and that of his family to gather an army and he believed that dong gun was ciently and if you look at that that word ciently it places him next to God in a 5 scene 4 they prepare for battle and again mocked offers very little to see much like the beginning of the play all he said says really is let our just sense senses attend the true event and put we on industry soldier soldier ship so basically hes saying we shouldnt make any judgments because we have to achieve our goal and lets all fight as we begin to reach the climax of the play then we get this massive speech from act off I dont expect you to remember it be in th sections that you can so we get that way the noises tyrant show thy fierce so he refers to my breath as a tyrant remember if thou be slain and with no stroke of mine my wife and childrens ghosts will haunt me still so we know that he is still haunted naturally by the death of his wife and his children and if he doesnt kill Macbeth he feels that hes going to be haunted forever I cannot strike out wretched cones whose arms are hired to bear their Steves either

else my sword with a none buttered edge I sheath again on deded there thou should speak by this weave clatter one of the greatest north seams Brutus let me find him fortune and more I beg not so easy but he says here basically hes gonna fight Macbeth or else hell put his down his put his sword down one used hes not interested in been fighting the other soldiers he has this needful for vengeance doesnt he because of obviously what Mark Beth has done Malcolm gives us an interesting quote as well and a good one to use in an exam before get a question about market or fee says market off this normal fashion thy God truth and honor so we know that Malcolm trusts him and weve got the adjective noble weve also got the adjective good and then weve got references to him as being honorable so again in terms of the characteristics of knocked off Malcolm almost sums it all up there in that line and we come to the end of the play act 5 scene II 8 and that massive line about untimely ripped so Macbeth and mocked off meet on the battlefield Macduff reveals that he was not a woman born but rather torn from his mothers womb massive court marked off was from his mothers womb untimely ripped she explained makes it clear that Macbeth should not have trusted the witches Macduff arrives with Macbeth head and pronounces Malcolm the rightful king hell King of Scotland and just for anyone who wants a critical analysis or aiming high weve got Sigmund Freud floress some SES on my Beth and he noted the importance of parents and children so the recent death of the childless Elizabeth the first provided the occasion for the player Bayley and the witchs prophecies gave the crown de bungles children macbeth hope of children as Freud sight is defeated and finally we get mocked off shuttering cry he has no children Freud concluded then it would be a perfect example of poetic justice if Macbeth could not become a father because he had robbed children of their father and a father of his children and if Lady Macbeth had suffered that unsexy she had demanded of the spirits of murder and this could explain the illness of Lady Macbeth the transformation of her callousness independence as a reaction to where childlessness by which she is convinced of her impotence against the decree of nature at the same time admonished that she has only herself to blame if her crime has been barren of the better part of its desired result so again just have a read of that and make sure you understand what Freud was pointing out because quite interesting what he thinks about mocked off and what he thinks about mark Beth Beth in terms of parents and children he also argues in his essay that Macduff doesnt feel to see him anxiety as much Beth because he was untimely ripped rather than birthed naturally so the anxieties that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth feel because they were birth naturally and therefore that the pair of them end up being a lot of it not still they her with the sleep organ and Macbeth with the hallucinating Macduff doesnt suffer those things because he was born via cesarean section so just make sure you understand some of what Sigmund Freud was saying there or if he get a chance to read his essay do so because it might prove interesting to include in an answer oh this was useful in terms of looking at marked off as a character remember hes brave hes loyal hes emotional hes the opposite of Macbeth in many places in the play please subscribe to me on youtube its stay Syria and if you need anything on Twitter ask any questions its act on discourse do you see underscore English if you need any of my other macbeth videos theres a whole playlist and massive good look in your English literature exam
