  • A look at how equivocation was inextricably linked with the Gunpowder plot when Shakespeare was writing Macbeth and when it was first performed to a Jacobean audience based on ideas from James Shapiro's The Year of Lear.  Looks at Macbeth, The Witches and others as equivocators and what that signposts and the effect it has.

    Final task is an exam question based on appearance vs reality with Act 5 Sc8- previous ideas on Machiavelli and exam question based on an amazing Rob Ward resource.
