The Ruthless King of Scotland
About the story
The story is about how one great ruler who is given three prophecies that run him into the ground. Along the road he is given more responsibility then he can take and it involves killing a king, ruling a land, and even fighting himself.
Macbeth killed his best friend just because he thought he would be a threat.
Macbeth killed Macduff's family for his own protection.
Macbeth kills the king, even when treated fairly, so that he may rule all of Scotland.
My feelings about the story
I think this story was a clash of what all of Shakespeare had. He threw in these powerful quotes and unbelievable twists to the story that kept you hanging. His expertise made me read the whole story in one day. My favorite character by far was Lady Macbeth. What Shakespeare did with her was truly devilish. She sparked Macbeth into all of his evil doing which lead to one of the best endings that I have ever read.
