We are in the midst of week two of Macbeth, approaching the ides of March. Can there be a time more portentious?
Like Macbeth, we are "in blood / Stepped in so far that should [we] wade no more, / Returning were as tedious as go o'er" (3.4.136-8).
So let's carry on then, shall we?
We've certainly had many interesting conversations about various topics this past week or so. In fact, any number of us could say, "Strange things I have in head that will to hand / Which must be acted ere they may be scanned" (139-40).
I invite all who have things in their heads to bring them to hand (then keyboard). The more the better!
Those of you who've been reading along more slowly might want to check out my thread on Act II, which is all about the murder and its immediate aftermath.
If you have other issues you'd like to see discussed from that act, please start a thread!
Also, a lively discussion is ongoing in the "Weird Sisters" thread. Those of you who have not yet contributed, I urge you to bring your thoughts to the forum! And those of you who scarce need urging, please continue to share your ideas.

Consider today's date - it's too bad we weren't doing Julius Caesar!
