Summary
A classic tragedy about the lust for power and its ultimate bloody consequences. Macbeth is a Scottish war hero whose insane ambition unleashes a cycle of violence. Prompted by the supernatural prophecy of three witches, Macbeth is then goaded by his lady into slaying King Duncan in order to assume the throne. He plunges further into murder and moral decay to keep the unsteady crown on his head
