Macbeth by Shakespeare - Audio Book
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Three witches predict that Macbeth (a general in King Duncan’s army) will become king of Scotland.
When Lady Macbeth persuades her husband to slay King Duncan and seize the throne of Scotland, Macbeth achieves his ambition, but one murder leads to more.
Fired by ambition and goaded by his ruthless wife, he murders Duncan and assumes the throne. More killings follow as Macbeth attempts to retain his crown, until he discovers that prophecies are not always what they seem.
MacBeth is a stark tale of raw ambition, deceit, murder, passion, and madness. We follow the evil hands of MacBeth and Lady MacBeth as they lust for power.
"None of woman born shall harm MacBeth," the deceitful witches tell them, along with a warning to "beware of McDuff." Hearing what they want to hear, MacBeth and Lady MacBeth proceed on a trail of pure evil.
After shedding blood, their assumption of power does not provide the rewards that MacBeth and his Lady expected. Instead they find a dark spiral that descends into fear, guilt, and madness.
Shakespeare apparently penned this classic in the first decade of the 1600's; now some four centuries later it remains a gripping, powerful tale.
Perhaps no other Shakespearean drama so engulfs its readers in the ruinous journey of surrender to evil as does Macbeth. A timeless tragedy about the nature of ambition, conscience, and the human heart, the play holds a profound grip on the Western imagination.
Macbeth is among the best-known of William Shakespeare's plays, and believed to have been written between 1603 and 1606. It is frequently performed at both amateur and professional levels, and has been adapted for opera, film, books, stage and screen.
Guilt, retribution, and self-destiny are explored in one of Shakespeare's crowning achievements.
