-I wonder if Macbeth's wife is secretly a witch in the first two acts. Maybe that's why she has such a sudden change of character in the second half (I had never thought of that, but it wouldn't be too far off base).
-Why does Macbeth see Banquo's ghost and not Duncan's? He stabbed Duncan personally but Banquo was done by someone else...
-"It's Macbeth's own ambition that leads to the murders, just like where it says in the text..."
-"Why do we have to analyze everything!?"
Ok so the last one wasn't very encouraging, but I was still pleased to see that everyone is doing an excellent job understanding the text, analyzing it for deeper ideas, and really starting to identify with the characters. Shakespeare never intended his plays to be "studied", merely watched an enjoyed. Part of me wonders if, in the future, people will analyze old episodes of "Breaking Bad" and "House of Cards" for theme, symbols, tone, and mood.
