Here are six excerpts from Macbeth which ask students to analyze specific passages of importance to the overall themes of the play. The excerpts are heavier from the first part of the play, but they are portions of the following: 1) Act I, Scene iii 2) Act I, Scene v 3) Act I, Scene vii 4) Act II, Scene i-ii 5) Act III, Scene i-ii 6) Act V, Scenei & v.
The excerpts selected include the most famous portions of the play. Questions are mostly specific to the actual excerpts, asking about figurative and rhetorical devices such as repetition, irony, apostrophe, epithet, a couple of allusions (that need a bit of research), etc. but also ask students to paraphrase, summarize, and analyze particular lines. There are eight questions for each close reading, and the answers are included. I would use these only for an advanced 9th or 10th grade class or an upper-level class.
