Project Instructions
For this project, you will write an interpretative essay in which you examine the character of Lady Macbeth in Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth. In your essay, you will express an opinion about Lady Macbeth, specifically whether you think she is a villain or a victim.
Your essay should be between 600 and 900 words (two-to-three typed, double-spaced pages). Use the traditional essay structure:
I. An introduction that explains your purpose in writing the essay and includes a clear thesis statement.
II. At least three body paragraphs, each one of which develops an idea to support your thesis. Each body paragraph should start with a topic sentence that expresses a main point or idea. The rest of the sentences in each paragraph should support the topic sentence.
III. A conclusion that summarizes what you have said in your essay.
As you prepare for your essay, refer back to the free writing activities you did in Unit 3. Completing this form may help you organize your thoughts:
Lady Macbeth is a __________________ because she __________________. Her actions were __________________ because of __________________, __________________, and __________________. In conclusion, Lady Macbeth had a(n) __________________ effect.

Your essay will be graded with this rubric:

Her ambition was her downfall, and she ultimately ended up harming more people than she ever helped. If only she had been content with the way things were, she might have been able to find happiness. Instead, she was constantly seeking more power and control, which led to her ruin.
