April 18

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Macbeth Rap" by Flocabulary; "Lady Macbeth" by Barclay James Harvest]

In Macbeth Shakespeare wrote, "Fair is foul and foul is fair." In Infinite Jest (the title itself an obvious allusion to Hamlet), David Foster Wallace wrote, "Try to learn to let what is unfair teach you." What role does fairness play in tragedy? How do you see the concept of fairness?  What role does it play in your life and in our society?
