Summary of Macbeth

“Macbeth” is a play by William Shakespeare about a man named Macbeth who wants to be king. He and his friend Banquo meet three witches who tell them that Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and then King of Scotland. Banquo’s descendants will also be kings, but Banquo won’t be a king himself.

Soon after, King Duncan makes Macbeth Thane of Cawdor. This makes Macbeth believe in the witches’ prophecy even more. The King then decides to visit Macbeth’s castle. When Lady Macbeth hears about the prophecy, she decides to help Macbeth become king, even if it means doing bad things.

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth plan to kill King Duncan while he is sleeping at their castle. After they kill him, Macbeth feels guilty, but Lady Macbeth tells him to act normal. When Macduff, another nobleman, finds the dead king, Macbeth kills the guards to make it look like they did it. Duncan’s sons, Malcolm and Donalbain, run away because they are scared, and people think they killed their father.

Macbeth becomes King of Scotland, but he is worried because the witches said that Banquo’s descendants will be kings. He plans to kill Banquo and his son Fleance, but Fleance escapes. At a dinner party, Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost and starts acting crazy. Lady Macbeth tries to calm him down and sends everyone home.

Macbeth goes to see the witches again. They tell him that he will be safe until a forest called Birnam Wood comes to fight him, and that he doesn’t need to worry about anyone born from a woman. They also say that Banquo’s son will still become king. Macbeth starts killing more people, including Macduff’s family. Macduff goes to England to get help from Malcolm, Duncan’s son. Malcolm is scared, but Macduff convinces him to fight Macbeth.

Macbeth feels safe in his castle until he hears that Birnam Wood is moving towards him. This is actually Malcolm’s army carrying branches to hide themselves. Meanwhile, Lady Macbeth feels guilty and sleepwalks, revealing their secrets. She eventually kills herself. Macbeth is sad when he hears about her death.

During the final battle, Macduff fights Macbeth. Macbeth finds out that Macduff wasn’t born naturally, but was taken out of his mother’s womb (a caesarean birth). Macbeth realizes he is in trouble and gives up. Macduff wins and brings Macbeth’s head to Malcolm. Malcolm becomes the new king and peace is restored.
