About The Book
The authoritative guide to teaching Shakespeare’s Macbeth, The Folger Guide to Teaching Macbeth is an invaluable resource for teachers, students, and Shakespeare fans alike.
In 1603, James VI of Scotland ascended the English throne, becoming James I of England. London was alive with an interest in all things Scottish, and Shakespeare turned to Scottish history for material. He found a spectacle of violence and stories of traitors advised by witches and wizards, echoing James’s belief in a connection between treason and witchcraft.
In depicting a man who murders to become king, Macbeth teases us with huge questions. Is Macbeth tempted by fate, or by his or his wife’s ambition? Why does their success turn to ashes?
The Folger Guide to Teaching Macbeth includes:
-An explanation of the Folger methodology for teaching Shakespeare
-Scholarly essays from experts in the field
-A five-week breakdown of digestible lesson plans
-Resource links for a deeper dive into the world of Shakespeare
This guide is an essential part of any teacher’s toolkit.
