Macbeth Journal Entry #4

Re-watch the film and stage performances of the Porter’s monologue in Act II, Scene iii of Macbeth. Compare and contrast ¬†with the lines of the play. Which version of the Porter do you feel best represents the atmosphere and mood of the play? Why? Post to your blog.

Things to focus on (as we discussed today in class):

  • make-up
  • setting
  • music
  • wardrobe
  • props
  • lines omitted or added
  • lighting
  • emotion
    • tone of voice
    • facial expression
    • body language

These are the ones we watched in class BUT there are many more. Do a search and see which ones resonate the most with you.
