British Library Essay Extracts on Macbeth

Click on the link above to access a booklet that contains extracts from seven essays I’ve taken from the excellent British Library website.

  1. An introduction to Shakespearean Tragedy
  2. An Introduction to Macbeth
  3. The Witches in Macbeth
  4. Character analysis: Lady Macbeth
  5. Conjuring darkness in Macbeth
  6. Lady Macbeth’s ‘Hell Broth’
  7. Malcolm in Macbeth

The booklet’s designed to give students some accessible wider reading they can tackle at home and then discuss in class.  The bits I’ve put in bold are for zooming-in on.  Typically, I’ll ask students to expand on the statements or retrieve supporting quotations – that sort of thing.

All credit to the British Library.

Hope it’s useful –
