The project above is the creative portion to my Macbeth Analysis quarter 3 benchmark. It shows how much influence Macbeth, The Witches, and Lady Macbeth have over Macbeth’s mind act by act through brain pie charts. It also includes a quote underneath relating to the chart and a little blurb explaining why the chart looks like it does. The first thing I did when creating this project was making the charts. Afterwards I put the key on the page and added the charts. Then I added the quotes and the blurbs. The most difficult part about this project was making the charts and organizing them the way I wanted on the page. I am really proud of the organization of the project and how the brains look. I am not organized nor neat so to come up with such a clean looking, organized project was exciting for me. Often, my projects are not so aesthetically appealing. I would put one brain on each page and make a slideshow out of them rather than just one poster. I would have more room to add everything I wanted. I learned other underlying themes and emotions of some of the characters. I also learned about some “modern day Macbeths”. I learned that if I give myself enough time, I can come up with an organized appealing project.
This project is an extension of an analytical paper about the play Macbeth. By choosing a character a poem was written about Lady Macbeth, Macbeth's wife. It explains the changes Lady Macbeth went through throughout the play. The poem is based on a thesis from the essay. The thesis is Lady Macbeth, the most hyper-sexual and controlling woman grew weaker as the days passed after she came to the realization of what she had done to Duncan.
The process for writing the poem was simple. I gathered words to describe Lady Macbeth and her actions, while quoting her at the same time. To get a good sense of a free verse poem, sample poems were researched. Researching free verse poems helped me get a sense of how the poem should look and the rhythm of it.
There were a couple difficulties I encountered while trying to complete this project. One being, I had to use the correct word, as little as possible, and incorporate the quotes into the poem. Even though the poem is free verse, trying to use/find different words to describe what was happening in the play was difficult.
I am most proud of how the poem turned out. I began to believe the poem wasn’t going to come out well. The turnout of the project was good. Over coming the difficulties of writing this poem was exciting. I’m proud that I got the project finished in a short amount of time and I went through with writing a poem instead of doing something else. I enjoyed writing the poem.
While watching my other classmates present or glancing at their project I learned a lot. I learn how to interpret the play in many different ways. These different was wouldn’t have been done if it were my project. A lot of thought and time was put towards these projects. All of the effort put into the project showed through the final product. It was really cool to see everyone else’s ideas and learn in many different ways by many different projects.
During this project I learned that I could write a poem really well, in a short amount of time. Writing a poem in a short amount of time about a play is hard. Especially if you don’t write poems a lot. Writing this poem made me realize that i’m pretty good at writing poems. I should write them more often.
Here I’m positioned,
Alone with nothing in hand in utter silence,
And the only thing that
keeps me company are the
Vivid barriers that change positions every time
the silence is broken.
Who am I?
I don’t know what happened to me,
Becoming a man was my goal,
Not having emotions and dealing with regret
Who was I?
Things that broke silence
Make me cringe
Silence soothed my mind
Going over my thoughts but then memories
Horrible memories would come
Into play one by one
Who am I?
Memories when I stated
things such as
“Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty.”
Who was I?
Praying to the spirits seemed to
Be only right.
They could grant my wishes,
And change my features
Who am I?
I criticized people,
Just so they could prove me wrong
What did that get me ?
My heart is pounding
People can hear it
Is it that loud? What’s happened
Who am I?
“My hands are of your color, but I shame , To wear a heart so white.”
I used to be the boss and control things
That was my position.
The queen that wore the pants of me and
my husbands relationship
Who was I?
Completing deeds, struggling
Not emotionless, not regret less
Greed is gone, “Naught’s had, all’s spent,
Where our desire is got without content
‘Tis safer to be that which we destroy
Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.”
Who am I?
In this state of depression,
Not talking to anyone,
Seeing things no one else can see,
Not being able to erase the evidence from
my body parts
“Here’s the smell of the blood still.
All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
Oh, Oh, Oh!"
Who was I?
People are beginning to feel sorry for me,
Saying “I would not have such a heart,
In my boom for the dignity of the whole body”
Who am I?
My heart is pounding faster and faster,
Voices, I hear voices,
They surround this room
Louder and louder they get
I CAN’T take it!
DEATH, death is the only way
I take my knife and plunge it in my stomach
Four times, that’s all it took
The voices are gone, but i’m not free of regret
What have I done?
I made a piano collection of various piano pieces for the creative extension of the Macbeth quote analysis. I used little parts of the five pieces that I thought best describes Macbeth in each act. I mostly used minor songs to describe Macbeth because I wanted people to pity him and remember why he became hungry for power and became a killing machine. Therefore, I used more sad songs than loud, dark songs. This video below shows the change in Macbeth's character journey and the downfall of his life. To begin with, Macbeth was a decent man, but his hunger for power and dominance led him to become a killing machine.
My process of crafting the creative portion of this project was fun but somewhat difficult. First, I had to choose five piano pieces that I wanted to play to describe Macbeth. When I chose five of them, I had to choose the parts I think would connect naturally to the next piece I was going to play. Then, I had to learn the parts and film the whole thing. It took me hours to do this process.Difficulties that I encountered while doing this project was there were visitors in the house when I was filming the video. My solution was just to wait until it was somewhat quiet and start playing again. I had to cut out a lot of scenes in the film because of all the talking. It took me about 20 minutes just to this filmed. Another problem that i encountered was that my iMovie kept closing. That resulted in me filming over and over until one film was saved.
I am proud about how I overcame the difficulties and got to film the video. I am also proud that I learned the pieces well in a short amount of time.
If I had a chance to change my creative portion, I would try harder to compose a piano piece on my own rather than using piano pieces that has been composed by other pianists.
From doing this project, I learned a lot from my colleagues and myself. From my colleagues, I learned what talents and skills they have. I also learned other creative ideas that I could’ve done. From myself, I learned that I don’t approve myself if something is not how I want it to be. I also learned that I like my final products to be something I will be proud of.

This diagram/poster displays the similarities between the stories of AMC's Breaking Bad and Shakespeare's Macbeth. Although the two stories are not directly related in many aspects, general themes are transferable between them. I flushed out the majority of these within the chart by illustrating them in a simplified form. I tried to incorporate my quotes into the illustrations by having each of the relations correlate to one or more of the quotes I chose.
a. My project was about relating the themes that Shakespeare created in Macbeth and seeing how they relate to media in modern times. The ideas and story telling devices in Macbeth are still very viable options for writers to use today.
b. I tried to make an easy-to-understand chart that displayed the similarities and story sections/themes.
c. At first it was difficult to draw all of the characters in a consistent style, but after a few drafts I got the hang of it and started on the final. I am not that good with photoshop, but this was a good learning experience for future projects.
d. I am most proud about the style I used to draw all of the characters. I think they turned out really well. I used the Macbeth charter designs from the Patrick Stuart version, and those characters worked very well along side the Breaking Bad characters.
e. I would find a way to incorpate the quotes better into the actual art; I think that flaw might be the downfall of my project.
f. I learned about making a good vocal presentation to the audience.
g.I learned that when you are really invested in part of the project and you put your best work into it, it becomes less of a chore. I really wanted this project to reflect some of my skills, and not to be sloppy.
