William Shakespeare By WilliamShakespeare Completed

"Macbeth" tells the story of a brave Scottish general named Macbeth who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of arrogance, madness, and death.

Man, I love acting as the first witch in school. It is sooo much fun! I wrote a diary entry for macbeth for the night before he kills Duncan if anyone is interested. It's not the best and not entirely accurate but who cares?

this isn't a paradox. It's saying that when the battle finishes; when one side loses and the other wins
                              Not when one side wins and loses

@0dawna0 les mal. Wieso erinnert mich das an diese Brücke von irgendwas? Wo die Hexen auch was labern von wegen "wann sollen wir uns wieder treffen?" "Zur Mittagsstund am Brückenpfeiler"....?

Reminds me of Th. Fontane's poem about the Tay Rail Bridge disaster. Fontane sure seized the idea from Shakespeare. ^^
