"All hail, MacBeth! that shall be king hereafter!" With these dramatic words the weird sisters fire Macbeth with an all-consuming desire to be King of Scotland. And neither he nor his wife, Lady Macbeth, will stop at anything to gain the throne. A story of ambition, murder, and madness, Macbeth contains some of the most memorable characters in English literature. This short and accessible retelling captures the style of Shakespeare's original language.
