PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An enduring mystery of the play Macbeth is the identity of the Third Murderer in Act III, scene 3. Shakespeare never explained who it could be, which has left scholars and students to debate for centuries about the character who makes the most logical suspect.

For this worksheet, students identify what would motivate each listed suspect to participate in the attack on Banquo and Fleance and also what could be his/her alibi or reasons for avoiding the situation. Then, students respond to three in-depth questions to analyze who they think is the likeliest suspect and the use of this plot device.

This worksheet is best assigned after students have read Act III, but it can also be used after they've read the entire play.
