My friends think that I’m a freak for wanting to read Macbeth for leisure. I never thought that I would ever want to read it again either after the whole torture that was literature class. Then on a one fine day, I had this urge to dig up my old copy of Macbeth but unfortunately, I’d given it away. So I got a new one.
Reading it now, I have a somewhat better understanding and more appreciation for it. It also raises some questions that I have never thought of when I was in school. Questions like, why did Malcolm and Donalbain run away after their father’s murder? Didn’t they know that by running away, it’ll just make them look guilty even though they aren’t? There are more questions that I want to ask but unfortunately, I don’t have anyone to discuss it with me. It’s one of those times that I wish I’d stayed friends with one of my Lit. teachers. Maybe I should try the Shakespear boards or something but if anyone is willing to have a go at this discussion, I’d be very interested.
After I’m done with this, I’m planning to move on to Romeo & Juliet (for obvious reasons), Hamlet, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. That’s going to be damn interesting.
