Macbeth

William Shakespeare

Book Overview: 

Murder and madness, witches and war. Perhaps Shakespeare’s best known tragedy, Macbeth, a general in King Duncan’s army, is given a prophecy by a trio of witches: he himself will become king. Fired by ambition and goaded by his ruthless wife, he murders Duncan and assumes the throne. More killings follow as Macbeth attempts to retain his crown, until he discovers that prophecies are not always what they seem.

[Exeunt.]

SCENE VII. The same. A Lobby in the Castle.

[Hautboys and torches. Enter, and pass over, a Sewer and divers
Servants with dishes and service. Then enter Macbeth.]

MACBETH.
If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well
It were done quickly. If the assassination
Could trammel up the consequence, and catch,
With his surcease, success; that but this blow
Might be the be-all and the end-all—here,
But here, upon this bank and shoal of time,—
We'd jump the life to come. But in these cases
We still have judgement here; that we but teach
Bloody instructions, which being taught, return
To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice
Commends the ingredients of our poison'd chalice
To our own lips. He's here in double trust:
First, as I am his kinsman and his subject,
Strong both against the deed: then,. . . Read More

Don't you kind of hate how we've entered the decadent phase of Goodreads wherein perhaps fifty percent (or more) of the reviews written by non-teenagers and non-romancers are now naked and unabashed in their variously effective attempts at being arch, wry, meta, parodic, confessional, and/or snar...more

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing

هذا في رأيي هو أفضل سطر كتب عن العدمية في التاريخ
وهو السطر الذي استمد منه فولكنز عنوان روايته الشهيرة -الصخب والعنف

هذا هو كتابي المفضل رقم (1)
وسيظل كذلك ما حييت

Years after first adding this to my "Shakespeare" shelf, I finally sat down and did it. So here, long overdue, is

The Scottish Play, abridged:

عندما تتحرك الأشجار..و على يد رجل لم تلده امه هكذا سيتم قتلك يا ماكبث

عندما يتلاعب شكسبير بالألفاظ الي حدود تقنعني انني بلهاء حقا..لا اتقن الكتابة و لا حتى الكلام !!ا

هل ماكبث بطل غبي؟
في رأيي نعم☆ فقد تحولت...more

Over the past year, I have branched out in my reading, attempting authors and genres that I had not discovered before. Recently, I read Serena by Ron Rash in which the title character is compared to Lady Macbeth. While Serena may be ruthless, I had never read the play so I could not contrast the...more

‘’There’s husbandry in heaven; Their candles are all out.’’

This is a text that has been brewing inside my mind for quite some times. I started reading Jo Nesbø’s retelling of Macbeth two days ago (quite interesting so far, by the way…) and it gave me the chance to reflect on a masterpiece that i...more

There are two reasons to love this play.

The first reason is Lady Macbeth. Man, that girl has got it goin’ on. Have you ever found yourself in the running for, say, a new position that’s opened up at your company, a position for which you—along with one of your equally worthy colleagues, perhaps—m...more

Macbeth is Shakespeare's darkest play not only because of the restricted palette of its images--shades of black varied with bright red blood--but also because, in the play's world of warfare and witchcraft, its hero is half-damned from the start.

Inured to violence, prone to superstition, Macbeth...more
