The Text and its Status
History and Topicality
Critical Approaches and Close Reading
Adaptation and Afterlife

All the essays offer new perspectives and combine to give readers an up-to-date understanding of what's exciting and challenging about Macbeth. The approach based on an individual play, unlike that of topic-based series, reflects how Shakespeare is most commonly studied and taught.
