A Trio of Tragedies: MacBeth, Hamlet & King Lear by William Shakespeare - No happy endings need apply
It's not always good to be King as William Shakespeare demonstrates in three of his most famous tragedies, collected here in ebook form. With majestic language and heavy themes, Shakespeare puts his royal victims through trials until they embrace sweet death.
In MacBeth wild ambition, murder, and guilt mix with witches and their trickster prophecies. After murdering King Duncan and seizing the throne of Scotland, MacBeth and his wife heap more atrocities onto their record before finally succumbing to conquest and suicide respectively.
The royal mayhem continues in Hamlet, whose father the King of Denmark has recently died. The throne went to Hamlet's Uncle Claudius, but most galling to Hamlet is his mother's swift remarriage to his uncle. A ghost, supposedly of the dead King, declares Claudius the murderer and urges Hamlet to seek revenge.
Disturbed by this supernatural command, Hamlet feigns madness as he tries to discover the truth. More murder and suicide ensue as the cast portray a deeply psychological drama that examines ultimately the meaning of existence.
For a drama that will make you rethink your retirement plans, King Lear offers a profound look at a man who fails miserably to put his affairs in order at the onset of old age. Abdicating his throne, Lear plans to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, but insists that they declare their love in the most glowing possible terms to earn their inheritance. One daughter refuses to play his game and is disowned, and the two daughters who fawned over Lear soon turn their back on their old father. Bereft of his authority and with no place to go, Lear descends into madness. Widely considered one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, King Lear makes for memorable and meaningful reading.
Readers delving into Shakespeare may find the ornate language and jargon of Elizabethan England hard to penetrate at first, but soon the titanic talent of Shakespeare will take hold and the timeless poetic beauty of the writing will enlighten and inspire. Start feeling better about your life and become enthralled with the tragic undoings of three legendary characters from literature.
