by William Shakespeare

Macbeth is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare in 1623. It dramatises noxious effects of political ambition and it is considered one of his best plays.

The book tells the story of a Scottish general named Macbeth who ascends to the throne as King Macbeth, after murdering King Duncan.

Macbeth becomes obsessed with his new power and becomes a tyrant, which leads to his downfall. The tragedy also tells the story of Macbeth's wife, Lady Macbeth, who encourages him to kill King Duncan so that he can be king.

As in the Greek tragedies, Macbeth will learn his destiny through a prophecy, in which three mysterious witches announce that he will become king of Scotland and that his companion in arms, Banquo, will be the progenitor of a long dynasty of kings, Banquo, will be the progenitor of a long dynasty of kings.

Its main themes are ambition, power, betrayal and death.
