    DescriptionMacbeth is one of Shakespeare's four great tragedies, encompassing witchcraft, bloody murder, ghostly apparitions as well as high poetry, blended in such a way as to demonstrate the assured dramatic touch of Shakespeare's maturity. Macbeth's tragedy is that of a good, brave and honourable man turned into the personification of evil by the workings of unreasonable ambition. It was a lesson lost on King James I & VI, for whom the play was written.

    'Macbeth' is a tragedy, one of eleven that Shakespeare wrote. Like other tragedies, this one centers on a prominent person who after a significant struggle, suffers defeat. In this defeat the person achieves heroic stature. 'Macbeth' has been a favorite of readers, theatre-goers, and actors for almost four hundred years and is considered one of the best of Shakespeare's plays.
