Macbeth's close friend, a noble, a general, and a witness
About the story
Three witches prophesy that Macbeth, the thane of Glamis, will one day become king. He claims that if destiny will have him king, then destiny may crown him without his doing; but, deep inside Macbeth's mind, the seed has already been sown.
Banquo inquired about what prophecies the witches had for him.
Banquo valiantly fought against the invading Norsemen in a skirmish.
Even though Banquo suspected that Macbeth had killed the king, he pledged his loyalty to him.
My feelings about the story
I found the story of Macbeth very enjoyable. When I first started reading the play, I thought it was going to be difficult to comprehend as a result of its old-fashioned, and maybe even out of date, writing style. As I progressed through it, it turned out that the writing was simple and easy to follow with the help of my teacher. Also, the main character, Macbeth, has everyday human flaws, and I think that helped me relate to him. The play's blend of magic and royal setting made for an exciting read, as any modern book would.
