Directed by William Oldroyd. With Florence Pugh, Christopher Fairbank, Cosmo Jarvis, Bill Fellows. In this adaptation of Nikolai Leskov's novella "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk, a 19th century young bride is sold into marriage to a middle-aged man.
"That death and nature do contend about them, Whether they live, or die." (Act 2: 2) Lady Macbeth has drugged the guards and cannot tell if they are dead of alive, nor does she care.The owl that shrieked marked the death of Duncan, the sound like bells before an execution. The image conveys that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are equally as guilty with the murder. Lady Macbeth did not commit the murder, but she convinced Macbeth to do it therefore she shares just as much of the blame as Macbeth.
Contamination imagery signifies guiltiness in Macbeth. As Lady Macbeth deteriorates, she begins to dream of her bloody hands. She states, “all of the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten” her “little hand” I would do this as a painting not a photo
Macbeth: Simple project/discussion--Who or what is controlling who? Macbeth controlled by Lady Macbeth, Lady Macbeth controlled by? etc. Do a chart with red string connecting the controllers (what is behind our actions?) Pride? Selfishness?
