April 16

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Tomorrow Never Knows" by the Beatles/performed by Phil Collins; "All My Tomorrows" by Frank Sinatra; "Tomorrow" from the musical "Annie"]

Explain how the following soliloquy from Macbeth manages to capture the essential tone(s) of the play-- and your own experience of this last semester of your formal education.

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

1. Journal
2. Macbeth test
3. Heads-up: lit terms quiz Friday 4/20 (1st 30 terms)

1. Get your mind right. This is truly the beginning of the end.
2. After school today I will post the test; research the answers, post to your blog, and come tomorrow prepared to discuss.
3. Memorize the above soliloquy: due on demand beginning Wednesday 4/18.
