What should I look for when reading Macbeth?
One of the most helpful themes throughout the story is the way sleeplessness affects multiple characters (and the varying causes of it). Most importantly though, watch how Macbeth changes, and what motivates these changes. Like in Hamlet, there's a lot of "grey area" about the main character's internal motivations that the reader can fill in.
Why is the Great Gatsby still relevant today?
Despite the immensely different setting, we can still learn a lot about the human nature from the novel: the uselessness of creating artificial facades around ourselves, the ethics of being in a relationship, the timeless evil of classism, and the dangers of a reckless lifestyle.
What is an appositive, and how is it used?
An appositive is descriptive word or phrase that renames a noun in the sentence. It is set off by commas and can add useful information without unnecessary additional or clunky sentences. For example, in the sentence "My uncle Roger, an expert surfer, will be staying with us at the beach house," the phrase "an expert surfer" gives more information about Roger.
