The beheaded king of Scotland
About the story
Macbeth was the Thane of Glamis, and liked his life that way. After three mystical witches told Macbeth prophecies about his future, one of them comes true; he becomes the Thane of Cawdor! Now, a seed is sown in Macbeth's mind that the third prediction might come true- becoming the King of Scotland; later in the story, he must commit some sinister crimes to make his last prophecy come true more... swiftly.
Macbeth ordered the killing of Macduff's wife and children.
Macbeth blew out a candle to honor his wife's spirit.
Macbeth did not want anymore reports on how strong the English were because he thought that no man born from a woman could harm him.
My feelings about the story
This story is a work of art. I adore the fact that my teacher (Mrs. Darman) chose a more mature tale to read because I learned many new words, and experienced reading a novel that brings some adult concepts into literature class. For instance, murder and insanity were carefully placed into the story. To conclude, I have loved learning about Shakespeare and Macbeth because I got to taste (which I want to taste more of) a lovely dish of what sixth grade literature is all about.
