TOPIC: You will write an academic essay that presents your case for the role/dramatic purposes served by one element in Macbeth.
For example, you may focus on a character (other than Lady Macbeth or Macbeth) or relationships (e.g. fathers and sons, kings and lords), a stylistic device (e.g. an image pattern, use of personification), a dramatic device (e.g. soliloquies, asides), a physical item (e.g. swords, prophecies), or a societal aspect of the time (e.g. supernatural, augury).
