With its cast of murderous king, tormented queen, ghosts, and witches, and its themes of ambition, fate, sibling rivalry, and treachery, Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's most exciting plays. Classical Comics Study Guide: Macbeth helps students engage with this enduring story while increasing their learning skills in a wide range of areas. Activities cover such topics as Background (the Globe Theatre, the history of the "Scottish Play); Character (tracing MacBeth's shifts from hero to villain, writing Lady Macbeth's diary); Language (metaphors and similes, wordsearch); Understanding the Play (writing a book review, describing the action from a page out of the graphic novel); and Drama/Art (conducting a trial for Lady MacBeth; writing and performing a sequel). Like the other books in the series, this one is published in user-friendly spiral-bound format, and designed for students ages 10 to 17 and a variety of skill levels.
