636 thought on “Macbeth (Folger Shakespeare Library)

  1. IMO indispensable for new readers The format is the text on one page, and selected words and translations opposite, with expanded notes found at the back of the book for further reading and context Folger is reliable as always, although supposedly Arden is good as well, but I believe the format used there is text on every page with footnotes and translations found at the foot of the page, in contrast with the format here Just an aside, the size of the book is a bit compact so make sure you re ok [...]


  2. Three sisters play with Macbeth, maybe they re three witches that for their amusement, simulating being fate, tell to Macbeth not what will happen but what he as a man of power not so secretly wants Or maybe they are only three old women and their witchcraft is in Macbeth s head along with phantoms and voices of guilt that nobody else sees I loved so much how a mad world as a psychological wolf and a supernatural world as a magic wolf overlap and crash to devour Macbeth as if he were a simple sn [...]


  3. Shakespeare is difficult because he uses words that we don t use any, and worse, he uses words that we do use in ways that are very different from how those words are used today The Folger Shakespeare Library provides a set of notes that makes it possible to understand the Bard s challenging vocabulary.The story of Macbeth is very dark If your not familiar with it, it is the dreadful story of evil that resides within the good hearted man The noble man, Macbeth, encounters the temptation of dark [...]


  4. In the theater, people apparently don t call Shakespeare s Macbeth by its actual name it s usually called MacB or The Scottish Play The dark superstitions that hover around this play really show its power it s a harrowing portrait of a weak man who spirals into a personal hell of ambition, murder and madness.Shortly after a victory in battle, Macbeth and his friend Banquo are traveling home across a heath when they encounter three witches who greet him with All hail, Macbeth hail to thee, Thane [...]


  5. I got one of these for each of my extended family members for christmas and decided I wanted one for myself after seeing how nice the covers all were A bit easier for those who might struggle with Shakespeare s language A different experience for those who have read this one a lot too


  6. I gave this item 4 stars because, while the text is accurate and the price was great, the Acts Scenes were not divided well and it made it difficult for students to follow Its almost as if someone copied and pasted the text to a page and then condensed the spacing as much as possible to make it short For the price we will just take some highlighters and mark the different acts scenes to make them noticeable, but it would have been nice to have everything broken down a little clearly Having is so [...]


  7. There are things that should be seen and not read This is one of them Reading a play does not seem enjoyable It s better to see it done.


  8. Required reading for my 16yo for school The language left much to be desired for her She enjoyed the book as I knew she would.


  9. SirEvery play of William Shakespeare is unique Macbeth and King Lear, Othello and Hamlet, are reckoned Shakespeare s four principal tragedies Lear stands first for the profound intensity of the passion Macbeth for the wildness of the imagination and the rapidity of action Othello for the progressive interest and powerful alternations of feeling Hamlet for the refined development of thought and sentiment.If the force of the genius shewn in each of the work is astonishing, their variety is not les [...]


  10. From what I remember A very great book remember reading back in school somewhere in early 2000 scould have been 1999 Left an image in my head too with a feeling Loved it for that reason even though it was written in that old English lingo but I still liked it Still have not read this book yet but I will read both at some point I promise
