This book, is a illustrated version of the "Macbeth" is among the best-known of William Shakespeare's plays, and is his shortest tragedy, believed to have been written between 1603 and 1606. It is frequently performed at both amateur and professional levels, and has been adapted for opera, film, books, stage and screen. Often regarded as archetypal, the play tells of the dangers of the lust for power and the betrayal of friends. For the plot Shakespeare drew loosely on the historical account of King Macbeth of Scotland by Raphael Holinshed and that by the Scottish philosopher Hector Boece. There are many superstitions centred on the belief the play is somehow "cursed", and many actors will not mention the name of the play aloud, referring to it instead as "The Scottish play".

About the Book

FIRST WITCH

I myself have all the other,

And the very ports they blow,


All the quarters that they know

I' the shipman's card.


I will drain him dry as hay:

Sleep shall neither night nor day


Hang upon his pent-house lid;

He shall live a man forbid:


Weary se'nnights nine times nine

Shall he dwindle, peak and pine:


Though his bark cannot be lost,

Yet it shall be tempest-tost.


Look what I have.

Second Witch


Show me, show me.

First Witch


Here I have a pilot's thumb,

Wreck'd as homeward he did come.


Drum within

Third Witch


A drum, a drum!

Macbeth doth come.


ALL

The weird sisters, hand in hand,

Posters of the sea and land,


Thus do go about, about:

Thrice to thine and thrice to mine


And thrice again, to make up nine.

Peace! the charm's wound up.


Enter MACBETH and BANQUO

About the Author
William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (26 April 1564) – 23 April 1616) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613 at age 49, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.
Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the 16th century. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest works in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights.
