Extracts from this document...


I chose to write in the form of a police statement, because I felt this would be a more interesting style allow me to put myself in Macbeth point of view. In this written task my aims when writing this police statement was to show how Macbeth is interrogated by the police in a modern age. To show this, I use modern language and a police statement design. As Macbeth (in the police statement), my other aimed to convince the police of England that I am not the murderer.

I think ... awakened by the alarm, came in. The nobles went in to see the king's body. We had to give the terrible news to Malcolm and Donalbain. The violent rage inspired by my love for Duncan caused me to act before I could think rationally and tell myself to pause. I killed the king's attendants. We agree to dress quickly and meet in the castle hall. For my surprise the two princes had left the country. This makes them suspicious.
