Is Macbeth a World Literature?

Recommended Posts

Your world lit texts are given to you by your school I think. If they gave you Macbeth as a word lit text (which I doubt?), then you can.

Is Like Water for Chocolate one of your world lit texts? If so, then you can do that for WL2

If I remember correctly in world literature 2 papers I think you can use 1 non-world it book (not fully sure). So if "Like Water For Chocolate" is under your world lit books list then I think it should be fine to compare it to Macbeth.

I have never heard this, and am 90% sure that this would be incorrect.

You might be thinking about the language requirements for the English EE.

Say for world lit 2

I wish to compare macbeth and Like Water For Chocolate.

can i do this for 2a?

Which country are you from? In the English speaking countries, Macbeth cannot be considered as a world lit. text because it's originally written in English. World lit. texts are originally written in a language foreign to the country you're doing your IB diploma in, but translated into English. For example, I'm from Australia and I read One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, which was originally written in Spanish.

Pro, I'm pretty sure that master is correct, we got told the same thing.

Strange, my teacher insisted on the two works both being World Lit. I'll chalk it up to the curriculum change, or perhaps a slip of judgment on her part.

Just to be sure for anyone in doubt - I just verified my previous statement from the language A1 syllabus (99):

"Assignment 2a is a comparative study based on an aspect of one World Literature work

and one Language A1 work, chosen from any part of the school’s syllabus."
