Macbeth the play starts off with Macbeth seeing 3 witches on a cliff. Macbeth is a Scottish General. Macbeth approaches them and asks politely what they were doing there. The witches tell Macbeth to be quiet. One of the witches greets Macbeth, the next witch gives a sly grin, and the third witch has a grin the size of her face.
Macbeth demands to know what they are doing on the cliff again and Macbeth starts to walk away. Suddenly the witches stat to tell him the future and they tell him he will become less of a man and a greater king, its’ just a few murders away.
When Macbeth turns around the witches are gone. When he got down from the cliff he is approached by a man on a horse named Ross, a wise Nobleman. Ross tells Macbeth “we have defeated the trader lord, Cawdor and we have stripped him of his title and given it to you”. Macbeth sent a letter to his wife telling his wife what happened. When Macbeth arrived home at the castle his wife suggested a daring plan to make the witches prophecy come true b y murdering the king and his sons.
The King returned from a long journey and before long he was asleep. Macbeth was not comfortable about killing the king. When Lady Macbeth rings the bell it means the coast is clear. Macbeth started to see things like a floating dagger in front of him. He tried to convince himself that the dagger was just a part of his guilty mind but it continued to hover. Thee bell rang and Macbeth killed the king as quickly as he could. Lady Macbeth waited outside anxiously thinking to herself “I’ve drugged the guards’ drinks it can’t be that hard to kill somebody sleeping”. After Macbeth finished the job he covered the guards in the king’s blood to make it look like they had done the murder.
The next morning everyone was shocked that the king was dead. The King’s two sons Malcolm and MacDuff were onto Macbeth. They went to gather an army to invade Scotland. Malcolm was killed on his journey.
Macbeth went to the three witches again and they told him your time as king will stop when the forest moves to the castle. One night Macbeth was woken by one of his guards and they said the forest is coming straight to the castle. When the forest came a little closer Macbeth noticed that it was the king’s son’s army come to take over. Macbeth gathered his army and sent them out to war to fight the much larger army.
Macbeth came face to face with MacDuff and they were both very experienced Generals. Macbeth took thee first lunge with his sword, MacDuff dodged it and retaliated but Macbeth was too quick and avoided the attack. The battle went on for half an hour. Macbeth has a swing with his sword but missed and MacDuff quickly cut his head off. MacDuff’s army won the war.
