Goals: To use several different interpretations of a work to help develop a deeper and more complex understanding
Opener: A motif is a repeated pattern or idea that shows up again and again in a text. It is simpler than a theme, and is more repetitive. Often motifs are used to help support and develop themes. Write about a motif in Macbeth, describing as many places as it shows up as you can. Some possible motifs are blood, ‘manliness,’ sleep, and children.
