Macbeth: If I do it, then I must do it quickly. But will this murder be enough? Will it bring success? Or will more problems follow?
No man avoids the judgment that's to come and I'll be judged in this world too.
Shakespeare's Scottish story of magic and murder is one of his darkest works. Macbeth's bloody rise to power is encouraged by his wife, Lady Macbeth. Their ambition leads them into a world of guilt and madness which destroys their marriage -- and ends in tragedy.
