What dramatic techniques are used in Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'
Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' uses a variety of techniques and devices to convey aspects of the play to its readers. These being the setting, conversations, the use of characters as vehicles and entrances and exits. Setting the scene may give the reader a certain 'feel' for the play, by putting them in the right mood in order for them to have the best perception of the play as possible. Conversations between characters can supply the readers with information about certain other characters or future events that come in the plot, they may even give away some of the story. Conversations between characters can also supply readers with information about other characters before they even come across them in the play. Vehicles are characters that move the plot or story forward by providing information. Entrances and exits work similarly with setting the scene; they bring, or leave behind a particular ambience to the scene.
Examples of setting the scene within Act 1 are where Scene 1 starts with "A desolate place". This conveys to readers that at that moment in the play, the characters are in a gloomy and foul place.
