This worksheet, to be used after students have read Acts I-III of Macbeth, provides a mid-play refresher of the major themes and motifs of the play.
The worksheet includes six cited quotations from the play that represent themes (one each for the themes of Fate vs. Free Will, Appearance vs. Reality, Power Leading to Corruption, Guilt, Defining Masculinity, and How Superstition Affects Behavior) and five cited quotations that represent motifs (one each for the motifs of Supernatural Occurrences, Blood, Paradoxes, Ill-Fitting Clothing, and Sleep).
Students have to match the theme or motif to the quotation and then explain what it reveals about the character’s personality, thought process and/or motivation at that exact moment in the play.
