In my opinion this is a good book that makes people reflect upon the relationship between gender and power, and how ambition leads people to commit the worst things to obtain what they want. The text is very difficult to read because the english of the book is Shakespearean English, also I felt it difficult to understand it because Shakespeare uses a lot of figurate language, mainly metaphors. In the play one of the main symbol is blood because symbolizes all the murders that Macbeth did during his power. I liked the book and I enjoyed because keep you up with the reading, every chapter makes you feel more interesting about the story and see until where Macbeth’s ambition lead him to kill a lot of innocent people.
“Is this dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand? Let me clutch it.”
“If it were done when it’s done, then ‘twere well. It were done quickly.”
“What’s done can’t be undone.”
“Fair is foul, and foul is fair; Hover through the fog and filthy air.”
“Go to get some water and wash my filthy witness from your hand.”
