Years after first adding this to my "Shakespeare" shelf, I finally sat down and did it. So here, long overdue, is The Scottish Play, abridged: WITCHES: Bibbity bobbity boo! Time to fuck with the mortals! DUNCAN: Isn’t Macbeth great? Now there’s a guy I can always trust to have my back. I should prom...

Don't you kind of hate how we've entered the decadent phase of Goodreads wherein perhaps fifty percent (or more) of the reviews written by non-teenagers and non-romancers are now naked and unabashed in their variously effective attempts at being arch, wry, meta, parodic, confessional, and/or snar...

Macbeth is Shakespeare's darkest play not only because of the restricted palette of its images--shades of black varied with bright red blood--but also because, in the play's world of warfare and witchcraft, its hero is half-damned from the start. Inured to violence, prone to superstition, Macbeth...

Over the past year, I have branched out in my reading, attempting authors and genres that I had not discovered before. Recently, I read Serena by Ron Rash in which the title character is compared to Lady Macbeth. While Serena may be ruthless, I had never read the play so I could not contrast the...

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury Signifying nothing هذا في رأيي هو أفضل سطر كتب عن العدمية في التاريخ وهو السطر الذي استمد منه فولكنز عنوان روايته الشهيرة -الصخب والعنف هذا هو كتابي المفضل رقم (1) وسيظل كذلك ما حييت نبوغ شكسبير لا يحتاج أحدا ليدلل عليه فأكيف بالله عليكم أحلل أو أناقش عملا له لا...

There are two reasons to love this play. The first reason is Lady Macbeth. Man, that girl has got it goin’ on. Have you ever found yourself in the running for, say, a new position that’s opened up at your company, a position for which you—along with one of your equally worthy colleagues, perhaps—m...

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.” Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy is also one of his most powerful. Macbeth’s lust for power is compulsory, when confronted with the witches’ prophesy he is drawn into the tragedy as if he were a runaway train on tracks. He must fulfill...

Be bloody, bold, and resolute. Laugh to scorn The power of man, for none of woman born Shall harm Macbeth. Poor old Macbeth. You were doomed from the very first act. Your mistake was believing in hearsay, prophecy and half-truths. You were an excellent Thane, noble and strong. But you were never mea...
