Introducing the book Macbeth by William Shakespeare
Macbeth’s book is one of the greatest tragedies in the world. Many believe that this book was written between 1600 and 1605 AD. This tragedy refers to a historical event and Shakespeare seems to be recounting Scotland in that history.

The desire for power has led to bloody and horrific wars, and many have taken the lives of innocent people to gain kingship and power. Macbeth’s book is a 16th-century tragedy that shows the devastating consequences of an interest in power and the consequences of coercion and power-seeking.

Macbeth is a brave and worthy warrior, he is honored and honored by the King of Scotland for his merit. He and General Banco were returning to Scotland after a victorious war against the Norwegians when they encountered a group of wizards and the wizards informed them of their future. Macbeth’s sorcerers address him as Amir Kador, telling him that he will one day become king, and informing Yanko that his children will ascend the throne.

These words surprise the commanders. Interestingly, some of the sorcerers’ predictions come true when they return to Scotland. The previous emir, Kador, was ousted for betraying the king, and the king decided to succeed Macbeth. The person who becomes Amir Kadour will be the crown prince after the Shah’s children.
Macbeth tells the story of prophecy to his wife. Knowing this prophecy, Lady Macbeth does her best to influence her husband to force him to kill the king.

This temptation works. The day King Duncan goes to his palace to congratulate him on his victory. The conspiracy is carried out and the just ruler of Scotland is tragically killed. After killing the king, Macbeth orders the killing of Yanko’s children so that the sorcerers’ prophecy that Yanko’s children will become king will not come true.

Scotland endures an atmosphere of oppression and repression, many compassionate people leave the country and are replaced by the lowly. This process continues until the sorcerers’ predictions come true and Macbeth sees the punishment for his evil deeds. This tragedy is Shakespeare’s shortest play.
