Shakespeare at Large

It's nearly Halloween. In other words, it's the time of year when Macbeth gets special attention. For this week's Shakespeare at Large, we'd like to call your attention to a startling Lady Macbeth doll available through this seller on Etsy. Here's the description:

"Shakespeare's most vile heroine, Lady Macbeth, as a 12" tall hand sculpted doll. Made of polymer clay and cloth on a wire armature, she wears medieval dress and a sharp little dagger on her hip belt. All items, including dagger and circlet, are handmade, one-of-a-kind, and will never be duplicated. She comes with a wood stand painted like black marble. Her arms are gently posable."

This doll is much scarier than a howling plug-in ghost or a synthetic spider affixed to the side of your house. Imagine this doll on your front doorstep with a small bucket of red Kool-Aid beside her! If THAT doesn't freak out the neighborhood kids, they must be made of stone or something.
