Overview

The Shakespeare tragedy, in English, with line numbers, and translated to French by M. Guizot and in two German translations: by Christoph Martin Wieland and Dorothy Tieck. According to Wikipedia: "The Tragedy of Macbeth (commonly called Macbeth) is a tragedy by William Shakespeare about a man who commits regicide so as to become king and then commits further murders to maintain his power. The play clearly demonstrates the corrupting effect of ambition, but also deals with the relationship between cruelty and masculinity, tyranny and kingship, treachery, violence, guilt, prophecy, and disruption of the natural order.
