Honors 11: Macbeth Act I

Today, I assigned you a response to complete by Wednesday 10/22 by 7:40 a.m. You are to first type up your responses to the three Bloom interview questions plus the extra credit question answer. You will need to then, in a 200-word response, use Harold Bloom’s interview and Borges’ “Shakespeare’s Memory” as evidence to prove a claim regarding the importance of, ambiguity of, or obsession with (be creative with your claim regarding Shakespeare–does not have to remark on the example ideas just given)  Shakespeare to understand him as a so-called inventor of the Western literary canon or the original Bard.

Next, we assigned the dramatic reading groups/dates of performance:

1st hour’s groups

2nd hour’s groups

Next, we discussed Act I.i-iii of Macbeth and got started working on these focus passages from Act I.

HOMEWORK: Finish Act I
