Product Description

Publisher: Bantam Classics   Publication Year: 1988   First Edition: No

Book Type: Used   Format: Paperback   Condition: Good

No dramatist has ever seen with more frightening clarity into the heart and mind of a murderer than has Shakespeare in this compelling tragedy of evil. Taunted into asserting his “masculinity” by his ambitious wife, Macbeth chooses to embrace the Weird Sisters’ prophecy and kill his king–and thus, seals his own doom. Fast-moving and bloody, this drama has the extraordinary energy that derives from a brilliant plot replete with treachery and murder, and from Shakespeare’s compelling portrait of the ultimate battle between a mind and its own guilt.

Edition Includes: • Vivid, readable introduction by noted scholar David Bevington • A lively personal forword by Joseph Papp • An insightful essay on the play in performance • Comprehensive explanatory notes conveniently placed at the bottom of each page of text • Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English • Completely updated, annotated bibliographies • A listing of famous lines and phrases

DAVID BEVINGTON, internationally renowned Shakespeare scholar, is Phyllis Fay Horton Professor of Humanities at the Universiy of Chicago and editor of Scott, Foresman's 'The Complete Works of Shakespeare'.

JOSEPH PAPP, one of the most important forces in theater today, is the founder and producer of the New York Shakespeare Festival, America's largest and most prolific theatrical institution. He has produced or dircted all but one of Shakespeare's plays.
