9781495931239: The Tragedy of Macbeth (Standard Classics)

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.” Second Witch, Act IV, Scene I Macbeth is an unprincipled but imaginative man, with a strong tincture of reverence and awe. Hitherto he has been restrained in the straight path of an upright life by his respect for conventions. When once that barrier is broken down, he has no purely moral check in his own nature to replace it, and rushes like a flood, with ever growing impetus, from, crime to crime. His wife, on the other hand, has a conscience; and conscience, unlike awe for conventions, can be temporarily suppressed, but not destroyed. It reawakes when the first great crime is over, drives the unhappy queen from her sleepless couch night after night, and hounds her at last to death. It is the tragedy of eager ambition, which allows a man no respite after the first fatal mistake, but hurries him on irresistibly through crime after crime to the final disaster. —from AN INTRODUCTION TO SHAKESPEARE, by H. N. MacCracken and F. E. Pierce and W. H. Durham
