Arden Student Guides offer a new type of study aid which combine lively critical insight with practical guidance on the critical and writing skills students need to develop in order to engage fully with Shakespeare's texts. The books' core focus is on language: both understanding and enjoying Shakespeare's rich and complex dramatic language and the students' own critical language and how they can improve and develop this to become a critical writer.This volume on Macbethdiscusses the play in its Jacobean context and in relation to Shakespeare's other tragedies before looking closely at its language and poetry. The third section examines the play's critical history and how students can use this in forming their own critical responses. A final section looks at the play's history in performance and its afterlife in film and other media.
