“Shakespeare’s Portrayal of Ambition and its Consequences in Macbeth: An Analytical Study”

This is an analytical paper. Avoid plot summary. Assume you are writing for a reader who is
familiar with the text you are discussing but who needs to be convinced by your argument. Your
paper should include examples, including direct quotations, that support your argument. You should stick to primary sources. Your works cited should include the edition(s) you are using.  When quoting Shakespeare, cite the act number, scene number, and line number(s). EG 1.4.
17-28.
When quoting Shakespeare, follow these simple rules:
For short quotes (of two lines or less), use a back slash (/) to indicate line endings. Observe the
capitalization of line beginnings.
For longer quotes (of three lines or more), indent and lay the quote out exactly as it appears on
the page. Single space long quotations.
Remember that Shakespeare tends to write in full sentences. Do not begin a quote in the middle
of a sentence.
Stick to primary sources. (You may cite Rupert Goold’s version of Macbeth, but make sure you
distinguish between what is in the text and a director’s interpretation.)
The more quotations you can use to support your argument, the better.
