Macbeth-William Shakespeare

Macbeth,a brave lord of the king of Scotland,Duncan,once while returning from a victorious battle along with a companion Banquo happened to meet three witches who made three predictions which became a turning point in Macbeth's life. When one of the predictions became true, Macbeth along with his cunning wife killed the king cruelly to make the second prediction true. 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.

Social/Historical context:

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.

Writing Style:

Shakespeare possessed the fundamental excellencies of poetic art.

My Thoughts:

A wonderful classic not to be missed by any literate.
