Macbeth

Shakespeare's

MotifThere can many motifs that could be pulled from the play Macbeth. One motif would be hallucinations. Macbeth sees a bloody dagger point toward Duncan's chamber and the handle towards himself. Macbeth shows this when he says, "who should against his murderer shut the door, not bear the knife myself" (I.vii.417) He thinks he sees a dagger like the one below but does not making this a motif with repetition.

The Weird SistersThe clip above is a direct exerpt from the movie Macbeth at the scene where the witches furst meet Macbeth and Banquo. You can infer this is the first time they see the general when one says, "A drum, a drum! Macbeth doth come" (411). Their excitment shows they are interested in witnessing the future king and now he is infront of them which they prepare for.

Setting There are many settings in Macbeth but one setting that comes straight to my mind is a castle as you see below. I saw this picture of a castle and ironically enough this picture was taken in Scotland. An apparition once told Macbeth, "Macbeth shall never vanquished until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill..." (IV.iv432). I saw Macduff's soldiers in camo creeping up with hill to Macbeth's home.

Macduff When I think of Macduff I think of myself in a way. I'm still loyal at times it may seem impossible.I am a well grounded person with a level head. I could have gone with Anakin to the Dark Side. Would I have ever? Perhaps not but nevertheless. Macduff had many hard choices to make as did I but you cant let obsticles trip you up and defeat you. One must get back up and strive forward. Macduff and I both had to do awful things. Both him and I took actions unspeakable with, "...one fell swoop" (IV.iii.438).

MacbethI was hesitant at first but now I know I'm right in what I do. (I think anyway) I fight for what I believe is right even though some say I'm wrong. People have told me about this Macbeth being and I feel as if I'd get along with him. We both were 'wrong' before we changed for the better. I now worry as Macbeth did always questioning myself thinking, "If we shall fail" (I.vii.418). That one question is always haunting me and if you know both, Macbeth and I, you see as if we do fail in the end.

SummaryMY favorite scene is the epic battle between Macbeth and Macduff in scene viii of act V. It starts of with Macbeth not being as fearful as he should be when he says, "why should I play the Roman fool, and die on mine own sword" (V.vii.446). Here I thought Macbeth was surely going to be the victor in any battle. Things really start to heat up when Macduff yelled, "turn, hell-hound, turn" (V.viii.446)! I think if I was watching this play at this point of battle I'd get chills. I loved how you can see the controlled hatred of Macduff which makes him that much better of a character. After they talk at eachother Macduff calls Macbeth a coward and proceeds to piss Macbeth off further. The do fight and it is one fight that was indeed to the death.

ConnectionA modern day connection to Macbeth would be the film Ambition. It connects by having the same theme of Macbeth in my opinion. Ambition (film) is a story of a young apprentice struggling to master nanotechnology and prove to her master she is worthy. She falls time and time again but she has that desire to be great. The play and movie both show what you can do with a little ambition and perhaps knowledge. Wether you're a general commit unspeakable deeds for selfish purposes or trying to be the best for you master in conquering nanotechnology ambition can go very far. The moral of the story is never give up and always go that extra mile.

SongThis is an exerpt of the Hogwards choir singing, "double, double toil and trouble" (IV.i.431). This is what the witches said to brew up the apparitions which told Macbeth about the future.
