Grade 10 ELA Module 4: Unit 2, Lesson 13

Lady Macduff uses a metaphor to suggest that her husband does not possess the courage of even a small, short-winged bird—ouch! Using the resource, pupils discover Act 4.2 of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Using reading, writing, and discussion, scholars explore how the author uses figurative language to develop a central idea in the scene.
