Mini essays on Macbeth

The Story Macbeth is a respected Scottish general who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death. A few notes about the production: You’ll see the actors interact with and talk directly to the audience. This is true to Shakespeare’s time. The company of actors is small and many of them play different roles. This is also true to Shakespeare’s era. There are almost no scenery and very few props and set pieces. True to the era. The play is not set in any specific time. Costumes are mostly modern and serve the purpose of speaking to the personalities and conditions of the characters. They are not meant to be realistic in any way. Watch link: Pick any three of the following prompts and write a two-or-three paragraph “mini-essay” for each one you choose. You must support your answer for each of the three mini-essays by referring to specifics in the production we watched. Each mini-essay can be as long as you want, but I am not expecting anything more than a couple of pages total for the entire assignment. University-level writing is required. Pick any three prompts from the following list.: How are illusions to light and darkness used in the play? What were some of your observations about how the environment of performing in The Globe impacted the play? Shakespeare often used the supernatural in his plays. Examples include The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Hamlet. What is at least one theme in Macbeth that is informed by the supernatural? How are the concepts of fate and destiny important to this play? What does the play say about the concept of evil? What are some of the key symbolism used in Macbeth? Who is the greater villain, Lady Macbeth or Macbeth? Why? Which acting performance(s) impressed you the most and why? Do Macbeth’s soliloquies allow you to see him in a more sympathetic light than he probably deserves? Is Lady Macbeth a stereotype of the pushy wife who wants her husband to achieve more or is her character more complex than that?
