189 pp, 9 1/2" H. "(T)he reader is guided by Ruth Frieman's clear and penetrating explanations into the rich complexities of meaning, imagery, and characterization of 'Macbeth' - and gains a deeper understanding of the greatest playwright in English Literature. Macbeth as obedient husband, fearful and indecisive conspirator, calculating murderer, and finally as the haunted man who faces death with courage - all sides of this complex protagonist are revealed as the author traces Macbeth's steady movement towards his inexorable destiny in one of Shakespeare's most powerful tragedies. Featuring a helpful, introductory historical background on the Elizabethan theatre and Shakespeare's life, the 'Macbeth' TutorText will be an invaluable aid to high school English students and to all who seek a deeper comprehension of the famous Bard. (Includes a) line-by-line discussion of the text. (Miss Frieman's) lucid analysis bridges the gap between the obscure words and archaic idioms of the 16th century and the language of the 20th century, and she accompanies the text with discussions of the nature of tragedy and the tragic hero, Shakespeare's use of prose and poetry, the relationship between rhythm, rhyme, and meter, the effects of metaphor, and the use of dramatic and stage devices." Very light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light browning to top of text block, slight bump to top of spine.
