Macbeth

Macbeth by William Shakespeare, 5/5

This is much less substantial than Hamlet and the characters are less complex, but it is still enjoyable, with many memorable passages.  I was surprised to learn that Shakespeare didn’t invent the story, but adapted it from Holinshed’s The Chronicles of Scotland.  I appreciated that this edition (Oxford University Press) included the source version of the story at the end.
