Living with Lady Macbeth and the Witches

Book Available to buy from Amazon.

Also available to download on Kindle

This book is full of ideas and an in depth analysis of the character of Lady Macbeth. Having long studied the Macbeths both in terms of Shakespeare’s play and the real 11th century King and Queen, Jasmin Tempest gives an account of what it’s been like to spend so much time living with them and in particular, Lady Macbeth. Living with Lady Macbeth and the Witches explores her character along with the witches and delves deep into the historical background to understand them better. Much is suggested about this well-known Shakespearean female character and the supernatural beings that open the play. This book gives plenty of ideas for anyone about to work on an essay or assignment and will help any actress about to embark on this demanding female role for the stage.


One Thought on “Book available on Amazon

  1. Hey Liz,I did Macbeth for my O Level exams in Catholic Convent boarding shoocl in England and it was one of the bright spots! People behaving very badly (not the general fare of our curriculum).Just re-read a synopsis on the web (where was this info when I was doing gruelling O and A level tests for university in England?):Lady M: Lots of ambition. As time advances though, Lady Macbeth’s pretended strength diminishes as she fights the torments of her conscience. Tending to her conscience engulfs and destabilizes her so that she can not support Macbeth against Malcolm. Lady Macbeth’s attempts to suppress her conscience fail. At the end she chooses death because she can no longer bear the torments of her guilt What an amazing role to play! Do you think the character was probably the same age as you? What awful responsibility. Congratulations, Miss Lizzie, on your starring role in a Shakespearean play in NYC. Your Mum and Dad are so excited that they have asked me to take care of Miss Toots so that they can come to see you. I’m sure they are really looking forward to sharing your after hours theatre celebrations . They are so proud of you!Rooting for you in Marin County,Francesca and Miss Toots
