Studying Shakespeare’s Languge

1. Using statues to SHOW the representation of emotions/tones:

  • ambition, fear, bravery, deception, respect and honor

2. Use lines of text for statues to show tones

  • “All hail Macbeth” HONOR
  • “King that shall be” AMBITION
  • “Fair is foul and foul is fair” CONFUSION
  • “I have no words My voice is in my sword” ANGER

3. Group tableaux

  • A little water clears us of the ded
  • hell is murky
  • there’s daggers in men’s smiles
  • look like innocent flower, but  r serpent under it
