One of the many plays that has been received as part of the thrilling, yet tragic shows is William Shakespeares Macbeth, which is one of my favorites. When Macbeth the Thane of Glamis runs into three witches he is told a fortune that he would be king. Laughing it off he goes and tells his wife about it, who likes the idea of him becoming king. Soon, Macbeth kills the king and is crowned himself. However, he is haunted by the images of the late king leading him to betray his closest friends leading him into madness. Tragedy continues to strike Macbeth as the three witches approach him telling him to beware of their warning. Yet, Macbeth does not believe them leading this his own kingdoms demise.
