William Shakespeare con Macbeth (Penguin Shakespeare)
"The explosive and overwhelming effect of a truck bomb...this horrific, riveting "Macbeth" ought to be seen by as many people as possible." -- Terry Teachout, "The Wall Street Journal"
""Macbeth" is a blast...ghoulish...beguiling...sardonic...an expression of how captivating an evening of crackling Shakespeare can be." -- Peter Marks, "The Washington Post"
From the Back Cover
"Wouldst not play false, And yet wouldst wrongly win."
Macbeth is a feat of dramatic genius compelling, as it does, the audience to sympathize with a cold-blooded murderer.
Encouraged by his ambitious wife and the prophecy of the witches, Macbeth, a noble warrior, slays Duncan the king and seizes the throne for himself. But in so doing, he has upset the natural order and cannot hope to prosper.
