Reading Macbeth

Macbeth - William Shakespeare

I am taking two classes on Macbeth. One class was finished last Tuesday evening. We read this play out loud, taking five weeks to read five acts. Each student spoke different parts in each scene and then we discussed it. This is a wonderful way to read the play. It helps to understand the language and grasp the nuances which are missed in watching a performance or reading it straight as a play. I got to read Lady Macbeth's final speech on the last night! I was thrilled. Thanks to Geoffrey Owens for guiding us on our journey.
