Transcript of Macbeth Multi-media comparison

Fireworks Overview Macbeth Multi -Media Comparison The story of MACBETH has multiple themes, morals and motifs which were used to entertain an Elizabethan audience. These same themes, morals and motifs are also used today to entertain an 21st century audience.

Many of these themes are expressed in modern day mediums (Music, TV shows and film) "Viva La Vida"- By Coldplay This song talks about conquest and triumph. the following line can be compared to the opening of MACBETH: "I used to roll the dice, feel the fear in my enemy's eyes".

The song then begin talk about falling. As the main character begins to lose control and his empire begins to fall apart. "Shattered windows and the sound of drums, People couldn't believe what I'd become." "Lion King" Lion king is a story which is also very similar to MACBETH.

In both stories, the king is killed and the position is taken over by someone who looking to gain power.

Both characters Simba and Malcolm come back to the kingdom, to right the wrongs of the corrupted kings "House Of Cards" A popular TV show that also has similar themes and motifs as MACBETH is the new show, "House of Cards".

In the show, the protagonist will stop at nothing to become the president, in order to obtain this position he takes measures in more cryptic ways as opposed to Macbeth who gained control through murder and more physical ways. Finally On a personal level, I feel it is very important to study the themes of modern day mediums and the themes of MACBETH.

It shows how powerful and creative an author such as William Shakespeare really is.

This also shows that history repeats itself. What was used to entertain an audience 600 years ago, can still entertain a modern day one.
