Subject: Macbeth question
The following query was directed to me, but with the questioner's
permission I post it for your collective responses. --hmc]
When I joined this list, I told you that I was no Shakespearean scholar,
and I am about to prove it by this question. Can you tell me if there is
any significance to the frequent mention of time in _Macbeth_? I have a
teaching tape from Spectrum Educational Services (that name may not be
100% accurate) and the voice on the tape keeps saying ". . . another
mention of time" without ever explaining the significance or even why he
is pointing it out, and I must be on a different wave-length because I
can't see what he evidently expects me to see.
Thanks for any insight you might be able to offer.
