Lady Macbeth: moral scapegoat

Program Title:
Lady Macbeth: moral scapegoat
PRA Archive #: 

A talk by John Monteverde, associate professor of English at San Diego State College, who challenges the traditional view of Lady Macbeth as goader and prodder. This interpretation returns the focus of the play to Macbeth as tragic hero, engineer of his own downfall, and places the moral responsibility for the tragedy entirely upon Macbeth himself.
