Abstract

Macbeth is considered to be one of Shakespeare’s finest tragedies, praised for its artistic coherence and intense dramatic action. The action is desperate and the reaction is dreadful. The interest in the tragedy of Macbeth is the perpetration of crime by a man whose magnificent qualities of mind, extreme courage and poetic imagination raises the villainies above common meanness and gives occasion for a superhuman conflict of images and ideas. It is a five-act play that comes together to form a real-life situation. Macbeth has its own unmistakable individual nature and atmosphere binding the separate elements into a real organic structure. The play starts with a troubled nation (Scotland) and ends with it. The recurring patterns are betrayal and guilt which re-inforces the theme and plot. The tone and mood-foreshadowing and depression are used as symbols throughout the play. The relationship between the violent beginning and the vengeful end, Macbeth as a good man and an embodiment of evil illuminates the structure of the play. The recurrent images create the atmosphere of darkness with lurid flashes of light and definite sense of colour, especially the colour of blood. This paper aims to give a formalistic approach of Macbeth considering the play as an autonomous unit consisting of components like plot, structure, imagery, symbols, metaphors, syntax, trope and metre. The paper analyses and discovers their relevance and significance in the integration of the play.
