Read the excerpt from act 3, scene 4 of The Tragedy of
Macbeth. Macbeth is speaking to Banquo’s ghost, who
has appeared at a banquet.
[Macbeth.] Approach thou like the rugged Russian bear,
The arm’d rhinoceros, or the Hyrcan tiger;
Take any shape but that, and my firm nerves
Shall never tremble: or be alive again,
And dare me to the desert with thy sword;
If trembling I inhabit then, protest me
The baby of a girl.
What does the simile in the first two lines emphasize to
support the fearless mood in this excerpt?
O Macbeth is unaware of the danger presented by the
ghost.
O Macbeth is terrified of the ghost because it is like
Banquo.
O Macbeth is ready to attack and defeat the ghost of
Banquo.
O Macbeth is furious at the ghost and demands that it
leave.
