Macbeth William Shakespeare

“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.”:

How many modern plays do you believe will be bestsellers and entertaining audiences four hundred years after they were written?

It’s quite pointless to review The Tragedy of Macbeth. If you didn’t know you were reading a piece from Elizabethan literature, you could’ve thought that the plot was from a 2012 blockbuster movie. This is exactly where Shakespeare succeeds. Like all great writers, his appeal is timeless. You can very well identify with all his characters; somewhere inside you feel like they do, you yield to temptations, you make pacts with the Devil, and the master playwright knows it.

You love and hate the characters simultaneously. You curse Macbeth and his Queen to hell for their sins, yet you weep blood for their sufferings. Macduff wins at last, kills Macbeth for good, yet he never achieves the stature of his foe. In spite of knowing his destiny, being made aware of the diabolical deception of the three witches, the “usurper” fights the man “being of no woman born” with unflinching courage. Macbeth remains a grand character when he dies, as he has lived, by the sword:

“Yet I will try the last. Before my body
I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff,
And damn’d be him that first cries, ‘Hold, enough!’”
