Shakespeare’s Macbeth: Women in Power & Scots in America

  • SHARE:

Join our historian online from Wallace House State Historic Site at Facebook.com/WallaceDutch for a reflection on Shakespeare’s Macbeth. From the Weird Sisters in the opening scene to the famous monologues of Lady Macbeth, Shakespeare’s play probes Jacobean concerns over women in power, exploring ideas that remained resonant centuries later in the struggle for women’s suffrage. The “Scottish Play” is Shakespeare’s most direct engagement with Scotland as a setting and subject and we’ll compare English perceptions of Scotland in the Jacobean era with American perceptions of Scottish emigrants including Wallace House’s John Wallace in the American Revolution.
