Author: William Shakespeare
Setting: This tragedy has been written by Shakespeare about 1606, but the real
time of the play is some centuries before. The principal places are
Plot: At the
beginning of the play
When Macbeth come back to the king, Duncan gives to his
general the title of Lord of Cawdor, and goes to
Macbeth's castle with all the nobles to celebrate the victory against Norwey. Macbeth tells to his wife, Lady Macbeth, what the
witches had told him and she persuades him to kill
Macbeth is conscious that, even if he is the king now, after his death all will be give to Banquo's son, so he try to kill his friend and the son, Fleance. The three hired killers manage to kill Banquo but Fleance runs away before to be kept. Macbeth, at the castle during the banquet, begins to see Banquo's ghost everywhere, and, the day after, he goes back to the three witches.
They tell him that he will be killed only when
he'll see the
Macbeth prepares a war against the nobles but
when a servant run to him to say him that the forest of Birnam
seemed marching (that was only a plain to camouflage the nobles' soldiers with
leaves and branchs to hid their real number), he
started to fear and when he discovers that Macduff
was born by a cesarian operation, he braves his
destiny and dies in the duel against Macduff. When
Macbeth died, Malcom has been chosen to be the new
Themes and comment: This is a tragedy of great visual and verbal power and it's more complex than others like Titus Andronicus and Shakespearian's early plays. In fact in this tragedy Shakespeare explores all the human mind's darker recesses with a lot of violence and cruelty; but Macbeth is also simple and in the story we don't find some subplots or significant deviations, it's totally centred on a deadly play for power.
Like all the Shakespeare's works, this play talks about death and love, but on the contrary of most of his famous plays like Romeo and Juliet the supernatural world has an important role in the development of the story. The plot of this play is simple but Shakespeare resorts to some expedients to entertain the reader.
The idea of love in
Romeo and Juliet is quite different to Macbeth's play. Shakespeare describes
love between the two through the point of view of young lovers, but this is a
passionate and positive love; on the other hand the love between Macbeth and
Lady Macbeth is characterized from the desire of power. In
fact Lady Macbeth indices Macbeth to kill
I like Shakespeare's tragedies because they talk about important themes like love, death, prejudices,. through simple plots. In fact the stories are not complex, but the characters are phsycologically all-rounded.
