Krystal Abbott Pat Patterson English IV Friday December 03 1999 Macbeth In Shakespeares lifetime he wrote many plays Many of them were critically acclaimed and others cast aside The crowd always wanted to be more thoroughly entertained and Shakespeare always tried to keep up with the peoples needs In 1605 Shakespeare was being hounded for another work of genius Hamlet and King Lear had just been completed and the people of England begged for more He knew not of what to write and like many playwrights did some research He found two stories from Hollinsheds Chronicles of England Scotland and Ireland Shakespeare had already taken some ideas from there for his plays like Henry IV and Henry V William decided to combine the reign of Macbeth and the murder of King Duff by Donwald and his wife altering both to suit his needs Macbeth is by far the shortest play that William Shakespeare wrote The main reason why this is so is not because Shakespeare did not have much to say but because King James was so impatient Macbeth was written basically for the king In fact the emphasis on witchery was because King James so heavily believed in sorcery Shakespeare worried very much about the evil powers insulting the king After all was said and done Macbeth was another barrier to be broken in the great scheme of performances It was an instant success King James and the court loved it along with England No offenses were made from Malcolm needing help from England Shakespeare feared that James would be offended by that From that moment on Macbeth would be known by all Yet the people begged for more and hoped Macbeth would be out done by another astounding play Shakespeare wondered how such a task could be accomplished What was it about Macbeth that made it loved by everyone Shakespeares style has been analyzed by many and some still can not figure it
