Macbeth

James Mendenhall

Love Interruption by Jack White could very well be Macbeth's theme song.

This song relates to how Macbeth was led to murder Duncan by his wife, Lady Macbeth. Since he was in love with her his emotions were confusing and in the end he did what she told him to do. This, in the end is saying I'll do whatever she needs because i love her. When he finds out she's dead he won't let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt him, anymore.
Jack White-Love Interruption WITH LYRICS!

Who done it?

Lady Macbeth and the human spirit drove Macbeth to murdering Duncan. When Macbeth was told by the witches he'd be king he had no plans. He had a slight thought, but was not going to follow it. He then was told by his wife to do it and how better of a person he'd be and how amazing life would be. Then, after murdering him, Macbeth believed there was nothing left to live for and continued down this path of murder. His wife set him off as his mind carried him on.

Dynamic Character

Macbeth is a great example of a dynamic character in this play. At the beginning of this play he is madly in love with Lady Macbeth. So in love he murders Duncan for her. But then he was driven insane and when he is told about her death he just gives a huge speech on how life is short and pointless anyways. "She should have died hereafter. There would have been a time for such a word. Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time, and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." (Shakespeare 171)

Foreshadowing

I'm pretty sure everyone who has read Macbeth agrees, the witches did a lot of foreshadowing. The witches really stir the thought of murder into Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's head. Driving Lady Macbeth to make Macbeth murder Duncan. As the witches say, "All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be King hereafter!" (Shakespeare 19)This was before Macbeth was king, foreshadowing that he will eventually be king.

Dramatic Irony

Macbeth goes on a huge killing spree in this book. By the end of the book, Macbeth is murdered. The irony is that he kills then is killed. "[Enter Macduff with Macbeth's head]"Macduff: Hail, King! for so art thou"(Shakespeare 183) Macduff is then also claimed as king because he killed Macbeth but Macbeth became king by murdering Duncan.

Piece of Art!

This art was created by Jamie Hewlett.

I believe this art relates to Macbeth. The skeleton would be him because he is dead already on this inside but continues to murder others just so he can be above but in the end they all are truly dead. When Macbeth is freaking out and hallucinating, he is shown best as being a goner and a ruined human with nothing left but the framework (skeleton) of a human being. But even as he is dead, he continues to kill until he is stopped.
