For about two weeks worth of drama lessons, we just read Macbeth, wasn’t that exciting tbh. But it has some good things about it. Like idk.
Advantages to reading the entire Tradegy of Macbeth in class include: I get to say “yo, I read a whole play one time. It was a Shakespeare”, it was fun at the start when we started reading it by acting out the scenes in weird ways, I can now laugh at Macbeth-related jokes and sound intellectual, I feel like I’ve been injected with culture.
Disadvantages to reading the entire Tradegy of Macbeth in class include: it used up so much class time, we sort of rushed it once we were out of Macbeth-scene-interpreting-games, the language was confusing at times, it was sort of a little bit kind of boring. Little bit.
Important Points of Macbeth: The prophecy, the murder of the king in an attempt to fulfill prophecy, the new prophecy, the new attempt to overrule new prophecy, the failure of the attempt to overrule the new prophecy, death of main character while he was attempting to overrule new prophecy.
And that’s it for week three and four.
