The Multitudinous Seas
I want you to get a sense for just how ubiquitous Shakespeare's words are in our popular culture. For your homework, I want you to find some text that directly alludes to this play.
For example, Faulkner titled his novel The Sound and the Fury, alluding to the last line in Macbeth's famous soliloquy on the pointlessness of life.
In a comment on this post, link to something on the internet that quotes or alludes to a line in Macbeth. With the link, write a short paragraph describing the text and how it uses the quote. What new purpose are the words put to? Then, read two or three of your classmates' links so we can have a conversation about them next week. Make sure and sign in with your real name so I can give you credit.
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
