While I really do enjoy watching movies and plays, I enjoy it much more when I know what is going on. I was so lost for so long while watching “Macbeth.” I could not get past the Shakespearean english paired with the visuals from what appeared to be a World War II time frame. I have a hard time understanding Shakespeare’s english to begin with. I think I got the gist of the story, although I’m not sure I caught all important details and whatnot. After talking with my group, I definitely understand more. We all caught different parts of the story, so I think we have enough to successfully complete our theory.
Lady Macbeth and the witches were just about the only female characters in the whole play. They were certainly the only females with any real relevance. Lady Macbeth was especially essential to the whole plot. If she had not encouraged Macbeth, I don’t think the story would not have developed at all. I had no idea how to really go deeper with my group’s theory. What else is there to do at that point other than google it? So that is what I did. I came up with this website, and I actually found it very cool. It talks a lot about Lady Macbeth and how much she influenced the whole story while never really being given a name. I am excited to dive even deeper into our questions and look at the story from a feminist perspective. I hope that I find more interesting things than just the extent at which Lady Macbeth was an influence.
