    Banquo’s Ghost Portrayed On Stage In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, it would be more effective to have the presence of Banquo’s ghost on stage. By having Banquo’s Ghost portrayed on stage, the audience would experience more beneficial factors in contrast to not having the appearance of Banquo’s Ghost on stage.

Using a combination of visual and auditory cues, the audience will better understand The Tragedy of Macbeth if Banquo’s Ghost is on stage. It is important to develop the character of Banquo’s Ghost because it helps develop the play’s main…

    could offer you a place to stay if you’d like.” Fleance assiduously examined the dirt-ridden floor. His father had warned him against the dangers of the world. In fact, before Banquo had been murdered he tended to be an extremely vigilant man; although perhaps a little too on edge. However, Fleance’s stomach groaned and his wounds screamed and he wished for nothing more than a bowl of hot soup and a warm blanket. He sighed, hoping his father would not be too disappointed with his ignominious…

What, in our house” (Macbeth Act 2 Sc 3 li. 64-65). Lady Macbeth did a good job pretending that she didn’t know anything about Duncan’s death; therefore, this action deserves a golden star. The next character I would give a gift to is Macbeth. I would give Macbeth a flashlight so he could see in the dark. In…
