The Thane of Cawdor ...
In my limited experience of the Shakespearian world, I can emerge with one thought.
"My head hurts."
Apart from the the temporary neurological paralysis, i must admit it was enjoyable, but if it was not for some excellent advice from a colleague (basically i was told to read a synopsis) i would have otherwise been perplexed on my first foray into the works of the Bard.
What interested me, were two additional factors.
- The ruthless pursuit of power, with no regard for the consequence and ultimate doom.
- How the story, had no relation to the truth, there was a Scottish King, by the name of Macbeth who by all accounts was a well loved monarch.
The tabloid press could not have bettered this themselves.
I do intend to see some more Shakespeare, it would be rude not to and intend to at least form a view of the playwright before i declare
