About: Why do Shakespeare's characters use such difficult language? Wouldn't it be better if they expressed their feelings by laughing, crying or running around with their hands in the air? In this workshop students will look at an extract from one Macbeth, one of Shakespeare's grearest tragedies, to see how characters think by using creative language and literary devices. This close reading will allow us to see how Shakespeare creates characters, and where tricky speeches belong within the tragedy as a whole.
Speaker: Dr Peter Auger
