PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH (non illustrated) The play opens with Macbeth and Banquo two of the Scottish King Duncan s generals returning from battle when they encounter three witches in the woods The witches tell Macbeth of how he will become the Thane of Cawdor and then the King of Scotland For Banquo they prophesize that he will beget the line of Scottish Kings though he will never become king himself The two are sufficiently skeptical and continue their journey home .

However when the two come closer to the encampment they are presented with a messenger from King Duncan who announces that Macbeth has been made the Thane of Cawdor immediately putting the prophecy into perspective making Macbeth wonder how he might become king He invites Duncan to dine at his castle that evening and goes ahead to tell his wife of the day s events .

Unlike Macbeth Lady Macbeth is very sure of her husband s future desiring the throne and telling him that they must murder Duncan to ensure his ascension Immediately upon returning to his castle Lady Macbeth is able to convince her husband to take initiative and murder Duncan that very night .

The two plan to get Duncan s chamberlains drunk enough that they will not remember the evening and blame them for the murder When the body of Duncan is discovered in the morning Macbeth quickly kills the culprits and assumes the kingship All the while Duncan s sons flee the country afraid for their own lives .

Immediately Macbeth s misgivings and trust in the prophecies force his hand in the murder of Banquo and his son Fleance as well afraid that his heirs will seize the throne Successfully killing Banquo the murderers fail to kill Fleance .

The night of his murder Banquo s ghost appears to Macbeth and sends him into hysteria scaring his guests and angering his wife His very presence as the king of Scotland has angered the other nobles and further incites Macbeth s misgivings and paranoia .

To ease his fears he visits the witches again and they offer to him more prophecies He must beware of Macduff a chief opponent to Macbeth taking the throne He cannot be harmed by any man born of woman and he is safe until Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane Castle He returns home and finds that Macduff has fled to England to join Malcom In fear Macbeth seizes Macduff s castle and orders the murder of his wife and children inciting Macduff to further rage With Malcom the two raise an army and ride to Scotland to take on Macbeth with the support of the Scottish nobles who fear Macbeth s tyranny and murderous ways .

While Macbeth awaits his opponents Lady Macbeth is in the process of going mad unable to wash the blood from her hands The news of her suicide reaches Macbeth directly before the arrival of the English forces and sends him into an even deeper despair He awaits confidently as the prophecy foretold his invulnerability However Macduff s forces arrive under the cover of boughs cut from Birnam wood When Macbeth is finally confronted by Macduff after his forces have been overwhelmed Macduff announces that he was ripped from his mother s womb not born and ultimately defeats and beheads Macbeth handing the crown back to Malcolm the rightful heir non illustrated

One of the greatest plays of all time the compelling tragedy of the tormented young prince of Denmark continues to capture the imaginations of modern audiences worldwide Confronted with evidence that his uncle murdered his father and with his mother s infidelity Hamlet must find a means of reconciling his longing for oblivion with his duty as avenger The ghost Hamlet s feigned madness Ophelia s death and burial the play within a play the closet scene in which Hamlet accuses his mother of complicity in murder and breathtaking swordplay are just some of the elements that make Hamlet an enduring masterpiece of the theater, In Othello Shakespeare creates a powerful drama of a marriage that begins with fascination between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona with elopement and with intense mutual devotion and that ends precipitately with jealous rage and violent deaths He sets this story in the romantic world of the Mediterranean moving the action from Venice to the island of Cyprus and giving it an even more exotic coloring with stories of Othello s African past Shakespeare builds so many differences into his hero and heroine differences of race of age of cultural background that one should not perhaps be surprised that the marriage ends disastrously But most people who see or read the play feel that the love that the play presents between Othello and Desdemona is so strong that it would have overcome all these differences were it not for the words and actions of Othello s standard bearer Iago who hates Othello and sets out to destroy him by destroying his love for Desdemona As Othello succumbs to Iago s insinuations that Desdemona is unfaithful fascination which dominates the early acts of the play turns to horror especially for the audience We are confronted by spectacles of a generous and trusting Othello in the grip of Iago s schemes of an innocent Desdemona who has given herself up entirely to her love for Othello only to be subjected to his horrifying verbal and physical assaults the outcome of Othello s mistaken convictions about her faithlessness, King Lear growing old and too tired to reign decides to divide his realm amongst his three daughters leaving the largest share to the one who loves him the most His two eldest daughters Goneril and Regan foolish and deceitful children are rewarded for their insincere flattery His youngest daughter Cordelia however speaks honestly and truthfully which enrages the old king He disinherits Cordelia and then drives himself to madness left to wander the heath with only his Fool his servant Caius and the madman Tom O Bedlam for company Once reunited with Cordelia Lear is too late repents his rashness and must face the tragic consequences of his choices, In i The Tempest i long considered one of Shakespeare s most lyrical plays Prospero a magician on an enchanted island punishes his enemies brings happiness to his daughter and comes to terms with human use of supernatural power i The Tempest i embodies both seemingly timeless romance and the historically specific moment in which Europe begins to explore and conquer the New World br br Its complexity of thought its range of characters from the spirit Ariel and the monster Caliban to the beautiful Miranda and her prince Ferdinand its poetic beauty and its exploration of difficult questions that still haunt us today make this play wonderfully compelling br br i The Tempest i is a play by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in It is set on a remote island where Prospero the exiled Duke of Milan plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skilful manipulation The eponymous tempest brings to the island Prospero s usurping brother Antonio and the complicit Alonso King of Naples There his machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio s low nature the redemption of Alonso and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso s son Ferdinand
