Return to Content Writing inspiration: This week we have a bumper guest post: Martha Alderson My inspiration for my own writing and my work with writers comes out of a persistent urge to understand the story beneath the story, the meaning beyond the here and now.
Macbeth is supposed to upset people. It shows life at its most brutal and cynical, in order to ask life's toughest question.
This page deals with all this without apology. I have a high regard for truth and I talk plain. If you want something nice, please leave now.
If you are a student assigned to read or see Macbeth, or an adult approaching it for the first time, you are in for a lot of fun. Everybody brings a different set of experiences to a book, a theater, or a classroom.
Although I've tried to help, ultimately you'll need to decide for yourself about Shakespeare and Macbeth. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
When we first hear of Macbeth, he has just cut an enemy open "unseamed" from belly button "nave" to throat "chops". The king shouts "Oh valiant cousin!
A witch tried to bum some chestnuts from a lady. The lady called her a witch. This made the witch angry.
The witch plans to get back at her by causing a nine-day storm to make her sailor husband miserable. If the ship hadn't been under divine protection, she'd kill everybody on board. Another witch offers to help with a bit of magical wind.
The angry witch appreciates this and says, "You're such a nice person. Lady Macbeth b-tches at her husband and ridicules his masculinity in order to make him commit murder. She talks about a smiling baby she once nursed and what it would have been like to smash its brains out -- she would prefer this to having a husband who is unwilling to kill in cold blood.
Read the passage again and think about exactly what Lady Macbeth is saying. Lady Macbeth keeps a strong sedative in the house. She doesn't mention this to her husband even when they are planning a murder. She just uses it. Attentive readers will suspect she has had to use on Macbeth in the past.
The Macbeths murder a sleeping man, their benefactor and guest, in cold blood, then launder their bloody clothes. They smear blood on the drugged guards, then slaughter them to complete the frame-up. Horses go insane and devour each others' meat while they are still alive.
Everybody knows Macbeth murdered Duncan, but they make him king anyway. Virtuous-talking Banquo "Let's have a thorough investigation sometime" acquiesces to murder, confirming what every teen knows about adult hypocrisy.Find and save ideas about Writing inspiration on Pinterest.
