Macbeth: Study Guide for GCSE (first teaching 2015)

Set text for: AQA | Edexcel | OCR | Eduqas

There is plenty for your students to enjoy in Shakespeare’s Scottish play – delve into themes such as ambition, aggression and the supernatural.

This comprehensive resource ensures students have a detailed knowledge of every scene to prepare them for any exam question that comes their way.

A self-contained study pack that will help students and teachers... I particularly liked the quotation and analysis sections. These are invaluable exemplars to help students to understand Shakespeare's language and the complex ideas behind what is being said. R Getty, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer (feedback for previous edition)
