ENGL 1330 Paper 1 Length: 3-4pp. Due Date: March 7, 2019; 11:59pm Paper submission: UTC Learn Macbeth Theme Analysis For your first paper you will select a theme from Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then show how the theme develops throughout the entire play. Length is 3-4 pages. General Instructions: First, you will analyze one key passage to explain which theme you’ve selected and why it is important to the play. Second, you will select and analyze two to three other passages in the play that reflect this same theme and use these passages to reveal the unity of the play—or how the play fits together as a whole. Tips for Paper 1: 1. Make sure you understand the passages. In order to do that, you must know the definition for every single word, and you must understand the grammar. Refer to the notes in your Folger Shakespeare Edition and to the Oxford English Dictionary. Try rewriting the passages in your own words to make sure you fully understand it. 2. You absolutely must explain any puzzling or difficult sentences or phrases in the passages you choose. If you don’t understand these, you won’t understand the most crucial parts of the text 3. Explain the text in its context. In other words, it’s not enough to say what the passage means unless you explain how it fits into the larger story of the play. Who is speaking and to whom? What is happening in the scene when the words are said? And where does the passage fall in the context of the entire play? 4. When writing about the other 2-3 passages you select, do not merely observe that these passages say the same thing as the first passage. Instead, show how Shakespeare continues the theme in each passage but with a difference each time. Your analysis of the text should consider how the theme has developed throughout the play. Do different characters embody or communicate the theme differently? Does the play’s presentation of the theme change from the first scene to the last? Probably. Make sure you address the nuances of each scene rather than merely repeating yourself, and, as with the first passage, situate each selection in its context. What sources may I use? I do not want you to include any secondary sources in this paper (other than a possible definition or explanation of some obscure cultural/historical fact), and I especially do not want you resorting to the internet for your inspiration. Papers showing even small portions of plagiarism will fail and will send their authors to the UTC Honor Court.

Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ Theme Analysis
William Shakespeare is one of the most acclaimed literature authors of all time. In his
play ‘Macbeth,’ Shakespeare aptly uses deception as a theme to highlight the plot in the play.
Firstly, the play begins with Macbeth and Banquo visiting the three witch sisters. The sisters are
too physically unattractive to the level of scaring a fully grown up man like Banquo. These
witches are hideously ugly and manifest supernatural powers. Macbeth decides to have a
communication and interact with these witches. In the mix of these set of circumstances, the
witches state, "fair is foul and foul is fair" (Act 1, Scene 1, Line 10). In this particular context,
the above statement may be interpreted to mean that appearances may be deceptive. It is not
usually what an individual see that is important is defining a person’s character or attribute.
Throughout the play, a deeper understanding develops of this particular statement as the
audience is encouraged to investigate deeper to understand the behaviour of certain characters.
Therefore, the audience must discern the d...
