Macbeth by William Shakespeare Book Summary

Returning home from battle, Scottish warrior and nobleman Macbeth encounters three witches, seeking to deliver a prophecy. They tell him that he will ascend in rank, and ultimately become king of Scotland. As the witches' visions begin to become true, Macbeth yearns for the throne. Yet Macbeth's ambition is nothing compared to his wife, who hatches a plan to murder King Duncan and hasten her husband's rise to power. The body count continues to rise as Macbeth destroys everyone and everything around him in an increasingly desperate bid for the glory of the throne.

Macbeth (William Shakespeare) Book Reviews

Best play of Shakespeare?This is my first reading of Shakespeare. I was brought to this particular play by Borges, who mentioned the tension in the play never drops from beginning to end. In his 1970 prolog to the Spanish translation, Borges says that finds Macbeth more true to believe than Hamlet. And let me bring one more point the Maestro makes (in his rather unusually long prolog) about Macbeth: Shakespeare call the witches the weird sisters, but in the Saxon mythology Wyrd is the fatality, death, which premonitions all that happens in the play..Score: 4/5

Bad FormattingI don't know if this is the fault of the publisher or apple but I have to have the font small to keep the character names from overlapping the first word they speak..Score: 2/5

Peculiar searchI like the attention they give to formatting, such as with the scene titles, although the indents on line wraps are too small (which can be eliminated with a smaller font). Oddly, search results are incomplete. For example, a search for "come what come may" or "roughest" returns no result, although in Act I Scene III we find, "Come what come may, Time and the hour runs through the roughest day.".Score: 3/5

MacBeth ReviewOverall, an outstanding play. If you're a fan of tragedies and Shakespeare, I highly suggest this play to you. I find it amazing how many motifs, imagery, personification, and metaphorical phrases are used in this play. Shakespeare really demonstrates his clever uses of motifs throughout the play. If you read this play, I recommend that you pay close attention to rhyming couplets. They tend to have a history with witchcraft in the 17th century, which is a key theme in this play. Anyways, I extremely enjoyed this play, and I highly suggest reading it..Score: 5/5

A true classic 🖤Always wanted to read Macbeth. Ingeniously written and laid out! Shakespeare at his very best - an intriguing story about royals, treachery and, of course, murder. Something interesting as a side note - I’ve seen the three witches’ song/spell chanting in other places as well, it’s quite popular around Hallowe’en time..Score: 5/5
