Macbeth (Arc Classics)
Often referred to superstitiously as 'the Scottish play', Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's best-loved works. As a general in the army of the Scottish king, Macbeth meets three witches who prophesy that he will one day take his master's place.
A tumultuous tale of how ambition, guilt and paranoia lead to deceit and murder, it is one of the greatest studies of morality and corruption.
This edition is based on the First Folio and includes an extensive introduction that examines the origins of the work, the plot and the characters as well as notes on the text, a glossary and a timeline of Shakespeare's life and work.
