This week felt like a very uneventful week, however in hindsight we watched a very long shakespearean play that is reference in many aspects of the world today. Starting off the week we debriefed and finally decided just what exactly each group's critical theory meant. I found it very interesting to see all the variation among the groups. There were three different theories that were picked yet there was a variety of movie choice between the theory, some decided it suit Macbeth better and some decided it fit King Lear better. There was even more variety among what each group interpreted the critical theory to be centered upon so I found that very interesting.
After seeing what each group had chosen and splitting up based on our movies things got even more interesting. I had only ever seen glimpses of Macbeth in pop culture today but never actually read the play let alone the synopsis of it. It was very interesting to see it, but I felt that I would have been able to enjoy it more had I read the play prior to watching it just. I would have also been able to differentiate between characters easier. At one point while Mr. Schoenborn was out of the classroom almost half the class was so confused that we had to say who each character was as they popped up on the screen just so we could follow the story line.
Other than the it being slightly confusing I found this week to have been very eventful upon looking back, I even was able to figure out the reference to Macbeth that is used in the musical Hamilton.
