Macbeth—“Enter Two Murderers”
Lecture no. 36 from the course: William Shakespeare: Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies
Taught by Professor Peter Saccio | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
In this final lecture, we continue with Lady Macbeth, whose case is every bit as interesting, complex, and compelling as her husband's—if not more so. We explore the sexual undercurrents and overtones of their relationship and look into the realm of "imagination" as we analyze this most searching Shakespearean portrayal of human self-destructiveness.
