          b. Character- Focus should be primarily on Macbeth and Lady Macbeth
          c. Theme- you must identify at least one specific theme
   4. Create a PowerPoint presentation which incorporates the following elements
          a. Analysis summary: 1-2 slides which summarizes your analysis and the importance of
              your motif in terms of the development of mood, character, and theme.
          b. Supporting quotes: a minimum of 5 slides which give a supporting quote from the play
