Macbeth[edit]

This peer review discussion has been closed.
I've listed this article for peer review because I want to know where to start to improve it, otherwise I would be spinning around in the dark and just editing, which would not be useful. Doctor Will Thompson (talk) 10:07, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Ruhrfisch comments:

  • It is always useful to have a model article or two to follow and Hamlet is FA, as is William Shakespeare. Since Hamlet is also a tragedy, I think the structure of that article would work well here too.
  • I would ask at Wikipedia:WikiProject Shakespeare for advice / help too.
  • The lead will need to be expanded per WP:LEAD.
  • For FAC, all statements that attribute anythng will need to be sourced with references to reliable sources. The statements will also need to be as specific as possible, for example On this basis, many scholars reject all three of the interludes with the goddess Hecate as inauthentic. Even with the Hecate material, the play is conspicuously short, and so the Folio text may derive from a prompt book that had been substantially cut for performance, or an adapter cut the text himself. all of this needs citations, and the scholars need to be identified.
  • Do not repeat the name of the article in headers per MOS, so "Macbeth as a tragedy of character" could be "A tragedy of character" perhaps. There are also NO refs in the whole Themes and motifs section,
  • Make sure images are free or properly justified for Fair Use, for example Image:Witches 2006macbeth.JPG needs a Fair USe rationale.

So here's some things to start on and please ask some of the experts that got Hamlt to FA a few months ago. Hope this helps, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:57, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
