Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Arguably the darkest of all Shakespeare's plays, Macbeth is also one of the most challenging. Is it a work of nihilistic despair, "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing, or is it a cautionary tale warning of the dangers of Machiavellianism and relativism? Does it lead to hell and hopelessness, or does it point to a light beyond the darkness? This critical edition of Shakespeare's classic psychological drama contains essays by some of today's leading critics, exploring Macbeth as a morality play, as a history play with contemporary relevance, and as a drama that shows a vision of evil and that grapples with the problem of free will.

Category Description for Macbeth:

This Shakespearean tragedy tells the tale of Macbeth's ascension to the Scottish throne following a series of prophecies made by a group of witches. Filled with deceit, treachery, and murder, this dark drama captures Macbeth's transformation from a man of honor and integrity to a man destroyed by his greed and treachery. Set in 1000 A.D. Scotland. ~ Enh
