Infamously known as the cursed Scottish play, Macbeth is perhaps Shakespeare's darkest tragedy. When General Macbeth is foretold by three witches that he will one day be King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth convinces him to get rid of anyone who could stand in his way - including committing regicide. As Macbeth ascends to the throne through bloody murder, he becomes a tyrant consumed by fear and paranoia.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debaparna Das | 12/14/2013

    " One of THE most fascinating, thrilling, awe-inspiring story I've ever read until now. An unforgettable read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin | 11/22/2013

    " Decided it had been too long since I last read something by Shakespeare. Having never read Macbeth, I believe it was only assigned to the higher level english classes in high school, so I was completely unfamiliar with the story. A very quick read, probably one of the shortest Shakespeare plays I've read. Classic Shakespeare dealing with death, deceit, betrayal, downfall, ghosts, war, kings, and some of the most beautiful writing I believe I'll ever come across. No surprise I came to enjoying it, but I wouldn't say it competes with Othello or Hamlet. Glad to have finally read this widely known piece of work. Highly recommended. "

    " Hated it as school, loved it as I got to know it. A nice study of people. "

    " I can't think of a better play for Shakespeare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Wolf | 11/6/2013

    " A drum a drum, Macbeth doth come! My favorite of the tragedies. Macbeth's "tomorrow" speech is one of the most beautiful pieces of poetry ever transcribed. The vibrancy of characters like Duncan & Lady Macbeth stay with you forever. "And vaulting ambition o'erthrown." Oh yes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/2/2013

    " Fascinating story about power and its effects. The best Shakespeare's plays I have read so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allie | 8/6/2013

    " I actually liked it a lot, despite how dark and creepy it could be if you really thought about it. I don't know if I enjoyed it as much as I did Hamlet, but that's a question time will have to answer. Which one will I go back and re-read first? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kindra | 6/24/2013

    " I was never particularly fond of Macbeth until I saw the RSC performance at The Globe. As it should be, much better on stage! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Varley | 2/27/2013

    " I was forced to read this book in my English class and it was NOT AS BAD AS I THOUGHT. Interesting characters, scary plot and some superstitious stuff that would usually make me scoff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandria | 6/25/2012

    " Macbeth and the emphasis on fate. The Weird Sisters with their prophesies, the protagonist' inability to believe, the sudden necessity of believing when it is far too late. "

    " At first the language used by Shakespeare was difficult to understand but generally as I progressed through the book, I slowly began to understand the language and get invoked with the story. It has a very interesting unique plot with the prophecies being very interesting. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
