"In an age of power politics, Donald Trump and ethical depravity, Macbeth remains one of the most compelling dramas of overwhelming political ambition in the English language. The events that follow Macbeth's "ambition without conscience" can still shock a modern audience. This new edition includes an original playtext and extensive notes. Other features of the Shakespeare Made in Canada series include character and plot synopses, a note on the text, and tips on reading Shakespeare. A new preface by playwright Judith Thompson reveals her own troubled interaction with the play. Professor Daniel Fischlin's compelling new introduction explores key topics in Macbeth; his research into the play's production history also reveals some fascinating Canadian connections to Macbeth that take us into a world of political ambition, corruption and assassination."--
