membean quiz date–block period Friday, Nov. 22

start reading A Doll’s House–aloud together or continue watching Patrick Stewart as Macbeth in film we started Monday

before film, take ten minutes of notes for tonight’s HOMEWORK post on your personal blog: think of the main idea from last week’s paragraph about Macbeth’s primary motivation in his “from this moment on” speech (4.1.145-7); in light of this idea, how do you interpret his words spoken just after he learns of his wife’s death–“She should have died hereafter” (5.5.16 ff.)  What do you see about his thoughts and feelings?  What do they mean to you, as you consider his path to this point in his life?  What is he telling himself, and what is he telling us?
