i read macbeth just few days ago but I remember it very well. simply because the story has a moral lesson for all of us. the lust of power and money can drive even the most strong to moral degradation. macbeth inspite of being a great hero kills the king , king Duncan and his friend banquo just because he was informed by the three witches that he will one day become the king of scotland. but before that king duncan was figthing the king of norway in a battle. its was only due to macbeth and banquo that the king managed to get a victory in the battle. but during the battle thane of cawdor who was with the king duncan earlier revolted against him and took side of king of norway in the battle. it was a narrow win for the king of scotland due to only macbeth and banquo.

After the battle it started raining . to get shelter from rain banquo and macbeth saw a cave and started for it. in the cave macbeth met 3 witches . who told him that he will soon become the thane of cawdor and after that the king of england .  macbeth couldnt believe them. during the journey back to his camp macbeth thought that it was possible to become thane of cawdor but to become king of england wont be possible until he kills the king. brushing aside this thought he reached his camp a messanger came to him telling that the king has called him. he then went to the king and there to his surprise the king of scotland king duncan made macbeth the thane of cawdor for his courage shown in the battlefied. when macbeth wife lady macbeth came to know about him becoming the thane of cawdor and the witches prophesy that macbeth will become the king of england .

A very demonic gleam came over her face. from a beautiful women she turned into a ugly looking women. Her thoughts were that macbeth her husband must kill the king of england to become the emperor himself. but how.? while she was still reading this letter send by macbeth , king duncan told macbeth that he will have a feast with macbeth at his castle the next night. macbeth on returning home (to his castle) was greeted by lady macbeth. lady macbeth told macbeth that he has got a golden chance of killing the king when he comes for the feast at the castle (Where macbeth lived) .

Macbeth first told lady macbeth that its not right for him to kill the king who has made him the thane of cawdor. the honor he had given macbeth will he repay the honor by killing the king.? secondly the king was his guest . and to kill guest was not moral and right any way. but lady macbeth started weeping and saying that macbeth was not a man . if he is manly he should act now and kill king duncan at night. macbeth was torn apart in two . one part saying do not kill the king, other part saying kill him. he was in moral dilemma. the king came just after the sun set. he was greeted and the feast started. after the feast the king along with his two bodyguards went to their rooms for nights rest. in the mean while lady macbeth was preparing a jug of wine with sleeping pills in it. she like a crafty women placed that jug in the kings room so that the bodyguards will drink the wine and go to sleep. and in reality it worked . both the bodyguards went to sleep.

Macbeth was still confused and feeling sick of the very thought of killing such a noble soul of king duncan. lady macbeth told macbeth that she will give him a signal when he should attack. but before she gave the signal macbeth started walking towards the room of the king. he entered the room and killed the king. when the morning came both kings sons malcom and donalbain came to take the king with them back to his castle. but . Macbeth became the king of scotland. but only after killing the pure hearted king. he later killed banquo his most trusted friend whom he started feeling suspicious of as the murder of the king was under mysterious circumstances. Macduff who was also a soldier was in the king Duncans army. He found the kings death suspicious too. he felt strongly that it was macbeth who murdered the king in his own castle.

he silently slid away from scotland and went to england secretively.

Macbeth also found macduffs absence strange. macduff in the mean while was preparing for an attack on macbeth so as to avenge the death of their king . Macduff along with the king of england mustered a large army and were preparing themselves to attack scotland. duncans sons malcom and donalbain fled scotland after their fathe's death. macbeth after committing two murders was ill at ease with himself. he found himself very lonely . his heart was paining all around him was beautiful but inside him he was already a dead man. he was full of regrets . slowly people also lost faith in him. as they also started feeling that macbeth was a evil person. they only respected him because they feared him.

Macbeth to relieve his pains once again went to the 3 witches in the cave. the witches told macbeth that no man who lives and has stayed 9 months in the womb of his mother can harm him , secondly they also told macbeth that he will remain the king of scotland util great brinam wood come to your castle and dunsinane hill. I will write later.
