FoxTrot: Macbeth Sequence (Part Two)

Amend, Bill. Take us to your Mall: A FoxTrot Collection by Bill Amend. Kansas City: Andrews and McMell, 1995.

Ah, Andi.

Ah, Paige.

Ah, Macbeth.

We return to the FoxTrot series on Macbeth, picking up where we left off. In the very first strip, Paige's mother was thrilled that her daughter was reading the play, and she showed that emotion by ecstatically reciting the opening of the dagger speech.

The large picture above shows the daughter's reaction.

The continuation of the series shows the enormous sweeping panorama of emotion inspired by Shakespeare (and by having to write a paper on one of his plays).

No comments:

Bardfilm is normally written as one word, though it can also be found under a search for "Bard Film Blog." Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).

Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:
Shakespeare, William. The Riverside Shakespeare. 2nd ed. Gen. ed. G. Blakemore Evans. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.
