Over the past year I have branched out in my reading attempting authors and genres that I had not discovered before Recently I read Serena by Ron Rash in which the title character is compared to Lady Macbeth While Serena may be ruthless I had never read the play so I could not contrast the two heroines Another of my reading goals this year is increasing my reading of classics Up until now I had predominantly read modern classics and found a worthy reason to read an older masterpiece So it is without further adieu that I present my take on the Bard's Macbeth Shakespeare penned Macbeth around the year 1606 when he was already established as a reputed playwright For this play he chose a contemporary Scottish soldier and references the Scottish crown within the text Yet as in most of Shakespeare's works the Bard was not as much concerned with the history surrounding the play as he was with the characters themselves their desires and motivations Thus Macbeth is regarded as Shakespeare's darkest tragedy The tale begins when Macbeth visits three witches later of double double toil trouble fame They prophesy that he will become the Thane of Crowder Thane of Glowdis and King of Scotland Yet the men who hold these titles are all currently alive Lady Macbeth plots and decides to murder all the key players who stand in the way of her husband becoming king framing other upstanding individuals for her actions She even goes as far as killing those who relayed news to her that King Duncan had been killed even though she herself committed the crime As the tale continues the Lady now ueen continues to plot and has servants and soldiers at her disposal to do her bidding Meanwhile Macbeth also grows weary of rivals to the crown and plots to eliminate anyone who goes against him While Lady Macbeth is at ease being an evil mastermind Macbeth reaches the point where he can not live with himself for murdering Duncan He returns to the witches in an attempt to change the prophesy but it is not to be At this point Lady Macbeth grows emotionally unstable while Macbeth himself is no longer afraid to die in battle as penance for previous crimes committed It is clear that Shakespeare intended for the Lady to be the hungry individual in this drama As in all Shakespearean works the text is not long but a little tedious if one is unused to old English Because I had just read Serena I read along uickly looking for comparisons to the two women allowing me to be engrossed in the prose than I might have been otherwise Shakespeare's words remain timeless over 400 years later deeming Macbeth as well as his other works worthy reads This play was fun because the characters were so dark encouraging me to read Shakespearean tales in the future

Tions introduced by the digitization process Though we have made best efforts the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience We believe. Macbeth is Shakespeare's darkest play not only because of the restricted palette of its images shades of black varied with bright red blood but also because in the play's world of warfare and witchcraft its hero is half damned from the start Inured to violence prone to superstition Macbeth struggles with the hags' predictions in the depth of his soul But his wife fiercely ambitious never struggles When he is haunted by his imagination she is steadfast preparing everything looking after the details urging him on It is only afterward when he is thoroughly damned coldly vicious that she finds she cannot wash Duncan's blood off from her handsAmong other things this play is the portrait of a good marriage If that is a good marriage can be made in hell

Don't you kind of hate how we've entered the decadent phase of Goodreads wherein perhaps fifty percent or of the reviews written by non teenagers and non romancers are now naked and unabashed in their variously effective attempts at being arch wry meta parodic confessional andor snarky Don't you kind of pine secretly in the marrow of your gut's merry druthers for the good ol' days of Goodreads known then as GodFearingGoodlyReadingcom when all reviews were uniformly plainspoken merely utilitarian unpretentious and above all else dull dull dull Don't you kind of hate when people say 'don't you think this way or feel that way' in an effort to goad you both psychologically and grammatically into agreeing with themIn the words of ABBA I do I do I do I do I doWell because the interwebs is a world in which the past stands shoulder to shoulder with the present and with fetish porn we can revisit the past in its inviolable presentness any time we wish Or at least until this website finally tanksConsider won't you Matt Nieberle's review of Macbeth in its entirety I have bound it with a heavy rope and dragged it here for your perusal Please understand that many a sic are implied in the following reviewsits really complicated and stupidwhy cant we be reading like Romeo and Julietat least that book is goodThere you have it Refreshingly not a review written in one of the witch's voices or alluding to Hillary and Bill Clinton or discussing the reviewer's first period Just a primal yell unleashed into the dark wilderness of the cosmos Yes Mr Nieberle is probably a teenager but I admire his ability to strongarm the temptation to be clever or ironic Don't you He speaks the native language of the idk generation with an economy and a clarity that renders his convictions all the emphatic Here's MICHAEL's review of the same play You may 'know' MICHAEL; he is the 'Problems Architect' here at Goodreads A problematic title itself in that it implies that he designs problems which might be the case for all I knowThis book shouldn't be reuired reading reading plays that you don't want to read is awfulReading a play kinda sucks to begin with if it was meant to be read then it would be a novel not a play On top of that the teach had us students read the play aloud on person for each character for a couple pages None of us had read the play before None of us wanted to read it I made the mistake of taking the 'easy' english class for 6 years The teacher picked students that looked like they weren't paying attention All of this compounded to make me pretty much hate reading classics for something like 10 years granted macbeth alone wasn't the problemI also hate iambic pentameterPure activism there STOP the mandatory reading of plays It's wrong morally and academically Plus it can really fuck up your GPA There's no wasteful extravagance in this editorial no fanfare no fireworks no linked photos of half naked oiled up big bosomed starlets no invented dialogues between the author and the review writer It's simple and memorable Being reuired to read plays is wrong and if you reuire anyone under duress to read a play then you have sinned and are going to hell if you believe in hell If not you're going to the DMVI am also tired of all you smug spelling snobs You damnable fascists with your new fangled dictionaries and your fancy schmancy spell check Sometimes the passionate immediacy of a message overcomes its spelling limitations Also in this age when we are taught to respect each other's differences it seems offensively egocentric and mean spirited to expect others to kowtow to your petty linguistic rules Artistic expression will free itself no matter how you try to shackle itThat's your cue AubreyIn my personal opinion the play Macbeth was the worste peice ever written by Shakespeare and this is saying uite a bit considering i also read his Romeo and Juliet Ontop of it's already unbelievable plot unrealistic characters and absolutly discusting set of morals Shakespeare openly portrays Lady Macbeth as the true vilian in the play Considering she is mearly the voice in the back round and Macbeth himself is truely committing the hideous crimes including murder and fraud I do not see why it is so easy to assume that Macbeth would be willing to do good instead of evil if only his wife were possitive I believe that this play is uterally unrealisticBut the following is by far the ne plus ultra of classic book reviewing While succinct and without any distracting inclination to coyness or cuteness Jo's review alludes to a bitterness so profound that it is inexpressible One imagines a few Signet Classic Editions hacked to bits with pruning shears in Jo's vicinityI hate this play So much so that I can't even give you any analogies or similes as to how much I despise it An incrementally snarkier type might have said something like 'I hate this play like a simile I can't come up with' Not Jo She speaks a raw undecorated truth unfit for figurative language And there's certainly nothing wrong with that Once in a great while when you get neck deep in dandified pomo hijinks it's a nice wallow in the hog pen you're itchin' for Thank you Jo I love you and your futile grasping at similes that can't approach the bilious hatred in your heart You are mine and I am yours Figuratively speaking of course And now here's my review Macbeth by William Shakespeare is the greatest literary work in the English language and anyone who disagrees is an asshole and a dumbhead
