But even after becoming the king Macbeth could not find happiness and was always haunted by the third prediction. In order to make false the third prediction he attempted many murders. He again met the three witches who made another three predictions this time and everything went according to that and finally Macbeth was killed and Malcolm the son of Banquo became the king of Scotland.
Macbeth is a Shakespearean classical tragedy evolving out of the hero's all-encompassing ambition. The supernatural witches add much to the horror and dread of the play. Macbeth is a conflict of good and evil. A story of damnation,how the good Macbeth gets damned to become an evil man due to inordinate ambition.
Shakespeare possessed the fundamental excellencies of poetic art.
A wonderful classic not to be missed by any literate.
