JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac; "Ball and Chain" by Social Distortion]
We often see chains as metaphors for entrapment (a la "The Allegory of the Cave"). But apart from things that hold us to a place or weight us down, chains can also be seen as bonds that meaningfully connect us to our identities, our families/communities, and our place in the ecosystem. When Macbeth disrupted The Great Chain of Being by murdering Duncan, things began to go awry. How does Macbeth's state of mind reflect Shakespeare's intended theme/tone?
