Just in time for Halloween, I’ve decided to abandon the Julius Caesar posts and spend the rest of the month talking about the most mysterious, most bloody, and most occult play Shakespeare ever wrote- MACBETH.
As you probably know, I already wrote a review of an amazing adaptation of Macbeth called “Sleep No More,” which you can read here. I also mentioned that there’s a new movie adaptation of this play, starring Michael Fassbender, (look at my last post to see the trailer). In future weeks, I’ll create a new play of the month page, and delve into the magic and curses associated with the play.
But for now, here are some nice tidbits from around the internet.
First, a funny comic from “Zounds, Alack, and By My Troth.”
Next, a short recap of the play from 60 Second Recap.
Third, a feminist interpretation of the play:
And finally, a modern retelling of the play from a BBC series called: “Shakespeare Retold,” starring James Macavoy:
Enjoy (devilish last).
