    Lady Macbeth’s Deviant Side

    • Eliza, very interesting perspective of Lady Macbeth throughout this monologue. I read Macbeth my freshman year of high school, and your post reminded me of many of my own interpretations of and feelings about Lady Macbeth as her character developed throughout the play. I loved how in the beginning you related the situation to something everyone can relate to–how often people say more than they’re willing to do. I liked also how you showed the progression of character development throughout the specific scene of Lady Macbeth receiving the letter. I think it would also be very beneficial to include some examples from the text just as you did at the end in saying, “Wouldst not play false and yet wouldst wrongly win…” Quotations like these are helpful in supporting the claim you’re making, and I think your claim is a very compelling one. For example, you could quote, “Shalt be what thou art promised” to emphasize your interpretation of Lady Macbeth’s thirst for power. https://litchapter.com/macbeth-by-william-shakespeare-lady-macbeth-quotes

    • This book sounds like a great read and definitely a very interesting story. The mention of the domino effect is very true it is a very real and heartbreaking problem. I liked how you related the book to another story and also to a real life problem.

    • This book sounds very interesting. The way that one kids death caused another months later is a sad truth. The way you connecting the book to a real story shows that this is true and the domino effect is a sad reality. I’ve always thought about how suicide would affect the family, but I never really thought how it would affect other things like friends and teachers from school. I would like to read this book it sounds good and intriguing.

    • This book seems like it’s definitely targeted for teens. Many teens in our current day and age are struggling much more with their mental health. It’s heartbreaking to see what kids in our society are doing to themselves and other. Death truly does affect other people and lead into a chain of grief and depression.

    • I feel astonished because people who tend to be in situations where they do not consider the tragedies that have happened already, will to cause more problems such as suicide, when they should really contribute for the solution of the problem. What i infer by this type of action is that most of his life really depended on those who did before him. On top of that, looks like he had a very strong relationship with them that he was got traumatized when he inferred that that relationship was not going to be as strong as it was.

    • Hi Eliza,
      I really enjoyed reading your introduction to your life. You shared some very interesting points about your life that were so intriguing to read about. When you introduced your family to us and told us a little bit about your parents background and your siblings, it made me connect to you by learning a little bit more about you. I also found it interesting how you told us about your interests and hobbies at the end. One thing I would suggest is maybe not jumping around so much in the last paragraph. I feel like a lot of information was put into that one paragraph that could’ve been spaced out a little more, so the reader can learn a lot about you but not feel like they’re just reading facts. Very well written, great job!
