Are there any sites that have full annotations of Macbeth?

I have an assignment for Macbeth that requires me to highlight every page with at least one of the following, three times: themes, motifs, literary devices, characterization, and symbols.

Example:
Blahblahblah: theme because ____
Blahblahblah: symbol because ____
Blahblahblah: characterization because ____

Thanks. c:

I am providing a link to an award-winning annotation of the play.  However, an annotation does not necessarily help you with this assignment, and you are likely to have to do some work yourself to complete it.  Annotations usually give background information and explanations of unfamiliar words in their historical contexts.  An annotation will certainly help you to understand the play better, but you need to understand each of the literary terms that are part of the assignment and how to apply them to the text.  Therefore, I am also providing you with a link to a site that discusses literary terminology.  You might also have handouts or a textbook that discusses literary terms, and I doubt that your teacher has created this assignment without having discussed these terms in class.  Last, but not least, there are enotes materials available to you, for which I have provided a link, too.
