Macbeth

Author(s): William Shakespeare

Kids' Classics (fairy tales, poetry etc)

'Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble' 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.
