We are diving headlong into Macbeth today.
For those of you who may have struggled with Shakespeare in the past, I want to recommend the following podcast: Chopbard. http://chopbard.libsyn.com/category/Macbeth
The episode posted above will give you some really good background into Macbeth. He approaches Shakespeare from the perspective of an actor, not an English scholar, so his explanation of the play is really accessible.
Please go to Google classroom for a copy of our background handout for the play.
