Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Macbeth is unusual in its representation of marital intimacy and in its central dynamic of a husband and wife working together in partnership. The article argues that this intimacy is realized in the imaginary private space of the curtained bed and through the speech form known as the curtain lecture.
