112 Words1 Page
Shakespeare, the intelligent author of Macbeth, created new words within not only Macbeth, but in all his works of literature. In Act 2, Scene 2, Macbeth had said, “No, this my hand will rather the multitudinous seas in incarnadine, making the green one red.” In this sentence, Shakespeare used the word multitudinous, which means very numerous. Another word Shakespeare created was assassination, and it was used in Act 1, Scene 7 by Macbeth. “If it were done ‘tis done, then ‘twere well it were done quickly: if the assassination could trammel up the consequence, and catch with his surcease success,” Macbeth declared. These are just two of the many words Shakespeare fabricated.
