Good morning/afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.
First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Will, as an actor in an amateur Theatre Company. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to present you my recommendation of William Shakespeare’s great tragedy, Macbeth. The target audience is focus on Australia teenager…
To illustrate the suitability of my recommendation, I have prepared a short performance. The first soliloquy extracted from Act2 Scene1, also known as the dagger scene, this is the scene that precedes Duncan’s murder. It is a nice description of Macbeth’s mental and emotional condition at that time, which marks a point of dramatic tension that will engage the audience.
The dagger speech is deservedly one of the most important scenes in the play, because it demonstrates…

Macbeth’s soliloquy gives a clear view shows his character development and current status. Shakespeare uses dark and gloomy language to depict Macbeth’s thoughts and imagination. First sentence starts with “is this a dagger which I see before me”; this is a hallucination that Macbeth sees a dagger with its handle toward him. It is clearly shown that Macbeth’s lust and greed are pushing him to the brink of insanity. On the other hand, symbolism plays a strong role in the soliloquy, the theme of blood and daggers are constant throughout. Macbeth recognizes his own insanity and lust when he says “Or art thou but A dagger of the mind, a false creation, Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?”. Macbeth continues to recognize more flaws in his personality and what he is doing, he later describes the blade of dagger as covered with blood, which again suggests the foreshadowing of Macbeths murder and guilt as the consequence. Moreover, he alludes to his inner darkness and sin in other ways, such as when he says, “Nature seems dead, and wicked dreams abuse The curtained sleep…”. It is clear that he recognizes the mistake in his behavior, he talks about how dark and terrible the night is, though he isn’t explicitly say he wants to kill the king. It is hard to believe the fact that, despite Macbeth’s recognition of all his flaws and sins, he still stuck to his plan. Guilt and madness lay upon him, but he is determines to follow his fancy and murder Duncan.
