    Hamlet by William Shakespeare (Pattty)

    Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett (Tallulah_Rose)
    Tallulah_Rose: "Wyrd Sisters" is a parody of "Macbeth", so everyone who enjoyed "Macbeth" might also like "Wyrd Sisters". On the other hand it's essential to have read "Macbeth" before reading "Wyrd Sisters".

Shakespeare is a staple in my life. I grew up with his plays in my house, I'm sure I read a few of them long before I read them in high school, but I wouldn't have fully understood them. I read Macbeth in grade 10. Not one of my FAVOURITES, but still an amazing read. ( )

I cannot believe this is the first full work of Shakespeare's that I've ever read. What have I been doing all my life? The frequent, clever turns of phrase were marvelous. I lucked out with a good book edition choice. This series gives Rashi-like commentary, enabling me to understand the narrative and word choices with clarity. Julius Caesar is next. Meantime, I've got to find a Macbeth performance in my area. Interest piqued. ( )

Seems like a lot of build up to just suddenly end like that. Damn those witches and their doubletalk. Pro tip: mention this play as often at theatres as possible. ( )

Macbeth é uma tragédia sobre traição e ambição desmedidamente trabalhosa, baseada na vida de uma figura histórica, Macbeth, que foi Rei da Escócia entre 1040 e 1057. Em Shakespeare, costuma ser um equívoco rotular Othello como uma tragédia sobre o ciúme, Hamlet como uma revenger's tragedy, ou Romeu como uma tragédia sobre o amor platônico, mas aqui a ganância é efetivamente o principal traço de caráter de Macbeth e Lady Macbeth, e a causa de sua ruina.

studied this play during 2nd level education. Certain lines still stick with me to this day. Amazing to think of its sheer impact, centuries into the future (and still going strong!). ( )

Dedication
First words
When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
Quotations
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Out, damned spot! out, I say!
Yet do I fear thy nature;

It is too full o' the milk of human kindness.
The attempt and not the deed
Confounds us.

Book description
One of Shakespeare's most classic tragedies, Macbeth is about the murder of the king of Scotland by one of his most honored Thanes. The book has a theme of deception, betrayal, and then has a surprising redemption at the end. I enjoyed this more than Julius Caesar because of the character of Lady Macbeth and when I read it, I understood it quicker than I was able to follow Julius Caesar.
