written task - macbeth

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. This police statement was designed taking into account the ones that can be found in real police offices. Moreover, this police statement can be filed in any police document.

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. Witnesses claim they saw Malcolm riding his horse as fast as lightning towards England and Donalbain went in another path on his way to Ireland.
