Please keep in mind while reviewing this piece, that it does belong somewhere in the middle of my essay. As of this week, the outline was due, but I have already completed about 1,000 words of the paper and decided to post the incomplete fraction. I chose two different books to support my thesis, Macbeth being one of them. I find I write best when I am mentally comfortable, and for me this means going out of order. Sometimes things don’t fit and I move them around, sometimes I delete sentences altogether. This is my first rough draft on the sections of my essay pertaining to Macbeth. I will continue to construct it into a more fitting essay form once everything has been compiled. This piece is lacking an introduction, and a conclusion, as well as the sections pertaining to the other book. It is incomplete, but it is a start; feedback is more than welcomed, I would love to begin shaping this up before it is even finished. Thank you for all your input, patience and understanding – I understand that this is somewhat awkward to read in its current form.
