    • Dear Katrina this was outstanding and i love your review on this. I think you explained it so well and descriptive. Also your cover photo is so bold and adorable. I look forward to seeing what you post next.

    • Dear Katarina,

      You make an interesting, and intriguing connection between Wonderland being the adult-world. I have read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland ​by Lewis Carroll during my freshman year, and to be honest, I did not understand the purpose behind the story. I would love to re-read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with this new perspective of the book. I would love to know if you know of any more evidence in the book referring to wonderland as the adult world. Great Review!

  • Dear Max,
    this analysis is amazing! I found that your points regarding the potential motives Hecate was driven by were extremely interesting. The way that you were able to discuss the true aspects of her character in such detail was very informative- and provided tons of insight on how she was able to impact the story as a whole. You were also…Read More

    • Nicely done, love the analysis. You go into such great depth about guilt and internal thoughts of Macbeth. Macbeth is such a great example of remorse and the fear of karma that the actions he take to protect himself are show us more about his mindset and the inner workings of his psyche.

    • Dear Katarina
      I am intrigued by your analysis and recording, Macbeth: A Tale of Guilt,” because I interpreted this scene differently. I saw this scene as Macbeth proving that he is a man. When Macbeth says “Be innocent of knowledge”, I thought that Macbeth was telling LM to not worry that he (Macbeth) has everything under control, and that she (LM) doesn’t need to know his plan. I did not notice that Macbeth was in an unstable position, maybe he is just showing that on the outside but you saw his true emotions that he isn’t showing. That is why I find your analysis very interesting because it is from a different perspective than mine.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “for Macbeth to perhaps drop or throw against the ground in order to show his declining mental state after killing Duncan.” I think this is original because in the versions we watched I do not remember anyone directing this scene using this method. At first I wouldn’t have thought that this action would match the scene but after reading your analysis I realized that during this scene Macbeth is “unhinged” as you said.
      Another sentence that I awakened by was: ““good things of day begin to droop and drowse” reflect the murder that Macbeth commited- ridding the kingdom of a peaceful and good authoritarian figure, only to be replaced with himself” This stood out for me because I didn’t realize that is what that line meant, and I agree with you. From what it said about Duncan in the play it seems that he is a kind and loyal kind, and during his reign Scotland prospered. But after Macbeth killed Duncan it all started to go downhill.
      Have you seen the musical Something Rotten? https://www.rottenbroadway.com/. I thought you might be interested in this because the Broadway Musical is a comedy that combines Shakespeare, and the present. Two brothers struggle to find success in the theatrical world, but they meet someone that shows them the future of what will happen in theater, and they decide to create a show. This part is most likely related to the witches from Macbeth, and it doesn’t just use Macbeth, the show includes ideas from a wide variety of Shakespeare’s plays. The comedy follows the brothers journey to create a 20th century show while also including Shakespeare. It is a hilarious show and I recommend that if you have time to go and see it.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your interpretations opened my eyes, and helped me to see a bigger picture. And I expect that your future writing will do the same.
