About Macbeth

Another well known of the Shakespearean tragedies, and this one is from 1605.

Macbeth is about a Scottish nobleman who ends up getting thirsty for power leading to much blood shed on his behalf and that of his wife, Lady Macbeth, too.  Their actions result in the death of King Duncan and friends such as Banquo and things don't end up well for either of them...  blame the witches at the start if you like.

Author / Creator: William Shakespeare

By magot-pies and choughs and rooks brought forth
The secret'st man of blood. What is the night?
