Length: 3 pages, not including a Works Cited page
This assignment is a short, analytical exercise in which you will provide a close reading of one
scene from Macbeth based on an examination of one word: weird/weyward.
Prior to Macbeth and Banquo’s entrance in Act 1, scene 3 of Macbeth, the three witches describe
themselves to the audience as the “weird sisters” (30). At least, this is how they describe
themselves in all modern editions of the play. However, in the original Folio text of the play, the
witches actually describe themselves as the “weyward” sisters.
In your paper, you will use the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) Online (available via the
Watson Library) to analyze the different possible meanings of the words “weyward” and “weird”
in Shakespeare’s England (when using the OED, your period of reference should be definitions
available prior to 1800). Your paper should include the following three components:
• Discussion of the various meanings of “weyward” and “weird” using the OED as your
resource. Do not simply list all the possible definitions! Instead, choose a few
definitions that you find particularly interesting and focus on those.
• Analysis of how these different meanings might affect our interpretation of the witches in
Act 1, scene 3. What difference does it make if the audience imagines these women as
“weird” versus “weyward”? How might Macbeth and Banquo respond differently to
them, depending on how they are described? This step is the most crucial component
of the essay and should, therefore, take up most of your space!
• In your conclusion, you get the chance to play the role of textual editor. If you were
editing a new version of Macbeth, would you choose to print “weird” or “weyward” to
describe the witches in 1.3, and why? Your conclusion should follow logically from the
analysis you present in the earlier parts of the paper.
The body of your essay should be clearly organized into three or four paragraphs. Given the
length of this paper, do not include a traditional introductory paragraph. Instead, begin by briefly
identifying the scene/lines you will be analyzing and then start right in with your explication.
Analyze. Do not summarize. Assume that the reader is familiar with the text you are discussing;
your role is to interpret a particular feature or features of that text.
Your emphasis throughout should be on careful observation, textual details, and thoughtful
critical analysis rather than on overly broad arguments or meta-commentary about the play.
Every claim you make should be supported with evidence from the text. Quoting from the text is
the best way to show you understand it and know how to use it.
Your analysis and annotations for this assignment should be entirely your own; you are to do no
outside research for this assignment, outside of the notes in your textbook and the OED. Of
course, if you do borrow an idea, quote, or specific analysis from another source (including web
sites), you must cite it properly.
You will need to include a Works Cited list that provides the Norton edition of your play and the
entries from the OED that you have referenced (note that you need to cite each OED entry/word
separately). Citations should be in proper MLA format.

I‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ have attached the rubric my teacher sent out in which it states everything the essay requires. The research question is Does Lady Macbeth conform to societal norms for women in the Renaissance and/or the women of the Middle Ages (The set‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ting of Macbeth is Scotland around 1040.) The answer to this will be the thesis and what the essay revolves around. Lady Macbeth does not conform to the norms that females in society at the time played. I need assistance in expanding this‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍.
