Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is rooted in the Shakespearean tragedy of Macbeth. We identify the core aspects of the Shakespearean tragic character and subsequently analyze the eponymous protagonist of the play using this model. Additionally, we analyze the progression of the play, noting the main driving forces thereof, whether Macbeth is truly the prime mover of the plot. Lastly, we analyze his agency, and the ways in which the secondary characters shape this agency.
