Macbeth Cd-Rom

Synopsis
Differentiated commentaries and prompts encourage pupils of all abilities to appreciate the richness of Macbeth through language, theme, character and an exploration of the key scenes. This production is aimed at a generation of young viewers who are television-literate, but probably unfamiliar with Shakespearean drama. Allows study of how texts are changed when adapted to different media, and how Shakespeare’s themes appeal to today’s audience. Contains the full-length video of Bogdanov’s version of the play, glossary, background and historical notes, and links to selected websites.
