9780140620795: Macbeth (Penguin Popular Classics)

Promised a golden future as ruler of Scotland by three sinister witches, Macbeth murders the king to ensure his ambitions come true. But he soon learns the meaning of terror - killing once, he must kill again and again, and the dead return to haunt him. A story of war, witchcraft and bloodshed, Macbeth also depicts the relationship between husbands and wives, and the risks they are prepared to take to achieve their desires.

"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."-- Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

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.

This edition of the text contains notes, a glossary and an introduction.
