Meet the Author

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.

Its an amazing tragedy that is presented very well. There are stage notes as well, so you can get a good image of the action onstage.

This has to be one of my all time favorites that Shakespeare had ever written!!! Eventhough there is a lot of killing, the story is really good. I thought that it would be like Julius Ceasar, but it wasn't. I really enjoyed it.

Macbeth is basically a tragedy about a man that kills a man with a small little dagger. The name of the man that he kills is named Duncan. The man that he has someone else kill is named Banquo. After the person kills Banquo he can't ever stop thinking about the death of him. It haunts him like no other and finally he can't take it no more. The parallel is a negative resource because I think it confuses a lot of people and a lot of people don't know what the heck it is even saying. It can also be used as a positive way because if your teacher wants you to read the Shakespeare then bam it are right there. But like again a lot of people don't even know how to read the Shakespeare version but if you look on the other page the regular version is there so it's pretty nice.
