Author: William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Summary: This play tells about Macbeth, Thane of Glamis, who was coming back from an important battle with his friend Banquo against the Thane of Cawdor, and met three witches who predicted him that he would become Thane of Cawdor and then King.
First he didn’t believe the witches but when on his return King Duncan made him Thane of Cawdor he made up his mind.

So he invited Duncan to have dinner at his home, and that same night he killed him, with the help of his wife, blaming the King’s guardians for the murder.
Malcolm and Donalbain, the two sons of Duncan ran away from Scotland fearing for their lives.
Then Macbeth became King but life wasn’t easy for him because Duncan’s sons, helped by Mac Duff, Thane of Scotland, and other English noblemen declared war on Macbeth for the control of the Scotland.

Macbeth: trama, caratteristiche e personaggi


The witches had foretold this event to Macbeth saying: «When the wood will move against you, then you’ll be over and you’ll be killed by a man not born from a woman». That man was MacDuff whose wife and son were killed in behalf of Macbeth because he was born by a Caesarean birth.
The moving wood was MacDuff’s army whose men had taken branches from the trees to disguise themselves.
In the end Lady Macbeth went mad and committed suicide.
MacDuff killed Macbeth and Malcolm became King of Scotland.


Comment: I never loved this kind of book whose tells about medieval’s story and, generally, I don’t like very much to read a book.
So I was very boring while I was reading this book.
