Worldview Guide for Shakespeare's Macbeth
by Brian Kohl
The Canon Classics Worldview Guides provide an aesthetic and thematic Christian perspective on the most definitive and daunting works of Western Literature. The Worldview Guides focus on the big picture (both the good and the bad) without neglecting the details. Each Worldview Guide is a friendly literary coach -- and a treasure map, and a compass, and a key -- to help teachers, parents, and students appreciate, critique, and master the classics.
"Perhaps the most vivid testament to the power of Macbeth is that actors consider the play itself bad luck. And the themes seem to justify this reaction: Macbeth is an unhappy, bloody story in which ambition proves to be the harshest master and men’s lives little more than the playthings of witches." ~ from the WG
The bite-size WGs are divided into these ten sections (with some variation due to genre): Introduction, The World Around, About the Author, What Other Notables Said, Setting, Characters, & Argument, Worldview Analysis, Quotables, 21 Significant Questions & Answers, and Further Discussion & Review. A free classics test and answer key are also available online.
