Macbeth Hannah hatton

Macbeth was written in 1606, by famous writer, William Shakespeare.

Three Witches

Macbeth is a story about a man named Macbeth who kills a King to become King. In the beginning, Macbeth was off at war, and on his way home, he ran into three witches. The three witches, later known as, "The Three Weird Sisters", tell Macbeth his "fate". They greet Macbeth with "Hail Thane of Glamis", "Hail Thane of Cawdor", and "Hail he that shalt be king hereafter". Well, that gets Macbeth to thinking, and he starts to dream and think about being King.

Lady Macbeth

Macbeth returns home, and tells his wife about the witches greeting. Lady Macbeth gets sort of excited, thinking about becoming royalty, and she comes up with the plan to kill the King. At first, Macbeth was very apprehensive. Macbeth is very loyal to the King, and of course he wouldn't want to kill him. Well, like wives do, she got into Macbeth's head, and he ended up caving in.

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth come up with this "divine plan" to kill the King. They follow through, but Macbeth doesn't do it exactly like Lady Macbeth planned too, and she ends up way deeper into this plan then she thought she'd be. Lady Macbeth ends up handling the bloody daggers, and that then becomes the beginning of the end.

Lady Macbeth gets some sort of form of PTSD, and after handling the bloody swords, she ALWAYS sees blood on her hands. No matter how much she washed them, she always sees blood. So after awhile of this, she kills herself because she couldn't take it anymore. Then Macbeth starts to think to deeply about the whole situation, and he ends up killing a lot of people because he feels like they know what happened to the King.

At the end of Macbeth, Macduff kills Macbeth. During the whole story, Macduff had a feeling that Macbeth killed the King, so while Macbeth was caught up on everyone else, Macduff planned to kill Macbeth. Once Macbeth was killed, Macduff became the King, a King everyone loved.
