Hi guys.

Today, in discussion, it was said that the play seems to end in the same place that it began. What do you think was meant by this?

Macduff and duty

Hi year 11. Today, (Act 4 sc 3) we saw Macduff break down at the terrible news of his family's fate. Should Macduff have left his "wife, children, servants, all" , his "pretty ones" as he calls them, unprotected and fled to "young Malcolm's" side?

Hi year 11
We have been watching the Polanski Macbeth. Polanski made the witches into real characters. We see them moving and talking. Do you think that the witches LED Macbeth to this evil path that he walks, or do you think that this is a path he would have taken anyway?

The toll of evil

Hi Year 11!
I was wondering what you thought about this question: Macbeth is a seasoned killer. Why then does the murder of King Duncan take such a toll on him? What do you think?
