Within and without, in the poetry of blood, Shakespeare's Macbeth ruptures dangerous political boundaries around the body, the psyche, time, reality, gender and nature, shattering the concept of the self as a sovereign state. 

For this thrilling episode Helen is joined by actor, singer and academic, David Adamson, for a discussion of the play's radical language and themes. 

Literary Punk is also proud to present an original work of sound sculpture, Birnan, specially commissioned for the Macbeth episode, and created by Melbourne sound artist Atticus Bastow.
