555 words - 3 pages

40 Pop Fresh Road WollongongWollongong NSW 251925 July 2005-07-25To the director,Society is changing rapidly and as it changes I think that the play Macbeth should be altered a little. If the play is kept the same it will become boring and we will only realize what the past is like. Maybe if there was two versions to show us what it was like in the past and the future. Something needs to be done!In the play, the witches are too plain. They are described as the plain and original witches you might find in a fairy tale. If there is a change in the witches, the whole play will change as well. This will help compare the differences from the times then ...view middle of the document...

Back in the day people wore formal clothes, fancy hats and occasionally had canes. Nowadays people wear hip hop clothes, wear trucker hats and carry knives.If the play was changed from Shakespeare's idea to today's society, it will help people learn how much the play has changed. From a safe and stable society to a violent and dangerous society.Many things have changed from the past. Reading Macbeth helps me realize how much society has changed and showed me how spoilt the people have become. Technology has changed a great deal. This has had a huge impact on society. Things are mainly made by machine and not human. This also tells us that the use of technology has a great effect on society too.Hip hop style first originated in America. The black people were wearing their own unique trend. As the clothing became famous through the rap and hip hop artists, many people began to wear it. These people who wore this clothing were dominant and they made violence in the area. Wearing the clothes symbolized that they are strong and dominant.This also shows us that as society changes, people hunger for power, popularity and money. The hip hop clothing shows us that people want to become dominant. As in the play Macbeth wanted to become King he wanted power. Although the hunger for power was present in the past it was not as serious as it is now.So my opinion of changing the play to a hip hop background is to show the difference between societies now from society before. Hopefully you can do something to show the change.Yours sincerely,Greg Mann.
