    Re: Lady Macbeth essay help

    As TDOL is suggesting, I'd flip through the play one more time and pick out five to ten quotes that strike you as relevant to the comparison. Obviously focussing on the Lady and the Witches, or on others' observations about them. Then I'd type or cut and paste them into a word processor, and let the essay build itself up by describing in your own words -- including what you think obvious -- how the quotes show what you have observed -- in this case a similarity. For bonus points, you can also show a few dissimilarities. Then, an intro and conclusion should suggest themselves. Remember -- don't be afraid to say what you think is obvious, as long as you are examining the text of the play itself, and often.
