Seniors: More Freudian analysis, Macbeth the murderer

We started off class discussing the Karin Thomson article that looked at Lady Macbeth’s thoughts and actions from a Freudian angle. We also talked about the “wandering uterus.” Ask your friends what that’s about. Your notes/writing on the article were handed in for me to check out.

Then we read II.2, the scene after Macbeth kills Duncan (Duncan’s death is never shown on stage) and discussed how Lady Macbeth’s personality is further revealed, while Macbeth’s thoughts are just as conflicted as ever.

Then we watched two versions of Duncan’s death, one from the Polanski movie and one from the Scotland, PA adaptation.

Remember, your response papers are due Tuesday.
