UNDERSTANDING SHAKESPEARE: Macbeth

A short introduction describes what it must have been like to be in the audience at the Globe. Running commentary supplies the meaning of archaic words, literary allusions, and symbolic meanings behind characters and situations. The use of poetry and the different meters is explored. An appendix sums up the play in prose and an afterword discusses the probable mechanics of staging. The Tutortext Series, most often simply announced in these pages, is a teaching machine in book form. Although its pages are numbered consecutively, the reader must follow numbered references within the text while answering the multiple choice questions at each step. For the determinedly self-taught, a helpful teacher.
