The beginning of Macbeth takes place in the middle of a thunderstorm which is only one example of supernatural themes shown. In this class, students will explore some of the supernatural themes and their importance in Shakespeare's Macbeth. Students will focus on Macbeth throughout this class but will learn skills which can be applied to a range of Shakespeare's work - perfect for students studying another play. This will help students to understand the language used by Shakespeare in both his sonnets and plays.
