Read an Excerpt
This book is written in Spanish. Macbeth es una de las grandes tragedias de William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Macbeth, el gran general del ejército del rey de Escocia, regresa victorioso después de una campaña de apaciguamiento cuando sucumbe a la tentación del poder. Desde entonces un mundo tenebroso y mágico, de apariciones y desconfianzas, sembrará de crímenes la pacífica vida de los escoceses hasta que Macbeth muere como habían viticinado las brujas.

This novel has to be one of my top ten. I am a huge fan of irony and this play has plenty of it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes English literature or, like me, who thinks that irony is entertaining. My favorite part of the play is when Macbeth becomes enraged at the witches and damns himself in the ironic phrase in which he damns 'all of those that trust him.' By damning everyone who trusts the witches, he actually damns himself. I would also recommend this book to anyone who is interested in English history because this play tells the reader a lot about the Enlish culture at the time of Shakespeare. I enjoyed this novel emmensely and I hope you do also.
