Macbeth Projects--February 2017
Premise: After Duncan is murdered by Macbeth, the injustice of the act sends the world into chaos. As you read the rest of the play, look for evidence of the disorder caused by Macbeth's overreaching ambition. Trace the motifs that Shakespeare uses to symbolize order and justice, evil and injustice, innocence and callous cunning. How does this chaos result in the total demolition of Macbeth, the tragic hero?
Assignment: Create a web page with a summary of your assigned scene, a selection of 20-30 lines of text that you think are crucial, poetic or just seem the best to focus on, a detailed annotation of the selection, an analysis of the selection explaining its importance to the narrative, artistry with literary device use or reference to theme, and a recording of the selection with appropriate pronunciation, expression and preparation. You are expected to use two sources listed in the suggested resources and cite that source when used in your page and in an MLA Works Cited.
