Dramatic Irony

In the play Macbeth, dramatic irony is shown very often. Dramatic Irony is when the audience knows more than the other characters, this also creates suspense and tension. There are many ways that dramatic irony is shown in Macbeth as I mentioned before. In ACT I, one of the dramatic irony events is the fact that Macbeth is plotting to kill King. The second is Malcolm is now prince and is fixing to take the throne. The third is that the King is planning to stay at Macbeth's castle. The last is, Macbeth now has a time and opportunity to kill the king.
