My fave high school read has got to be The Tragedy of Macbeth by William Shakespeare.
I may be cheating a bit, though. Because I don’t really have fond memories of it as a high school student, but I sure do love it now as a high school teacher. (Yes, I prefer teaching this to the more erudite and psychological Hamlet, the darling of English teachers everywhere; I’m going against type, as per usual.)
I think my fave part of it is the diabolical Lady Macbeth, a far more intriguing character than her husband simply because she undergoes such a major upheaval. She starts off so strong and cunning and conniving and then she falls so low at the end. It’s tragedy at its finest.
I wish I could have done her complexity justice with my outfit interpretation, but it was a bit of a challenge, shackled as I was to the twin requirements of Pick-me-up’s Go Grunge and my own 50 Dresses. I’m hoping the skulls on the chiffon top and the severity of the Chelsea boot and black shift dress will go far in conveying my respect.
And if that doesn’t satisfy you, how about some of my fave quotes from the play, Pinterest style?
