„Macbeth” is one of William Shakespeare’s four great tragedies. It tells the story of a Scottish general named Macbeth who, on his way home along with Banquo after a counterinsurgency, receives a prophecy from three witches that one day he will become Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland, but will have his throne passed to a descendent of Banquo for he has no son for inheritance. Afterwards, King Duncan grants the title of Thane of Cawdor to Macbeth as expected, and the first prophecy becomes true. Instigated by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan when the latter visits his castle, and Macbeth becomes finally king of Scotland. To deceive the public and protect his throne, he kills Banquo and the wife and son of Thane Macduff, throwing Scotland into civil war. The bloodbath takes Macbeth and his wife into the realm of guilt. Finally, Lady Macbeth goes mad and commits suicide, while Duncan’s son Malcolm and Macduff lead the army from England to Scotland and put Macbeth into death.
