Hundreds of bold-color illustrations keep pace with Shakespeare's dialogue in The Illustrated Macbeth, an unexpurgated but easy-to-understand, panel-by-panel look at the classic tragedy of ambition and death. Like the Elizabethan groundlings who stood just inches from the stage at the old globe theatre, readers observe characters and scenes close at hand, immediately making vital, visual connections between actors and actions.

For this new popular format, no one word of text has been edited from the Folio Edition. The European artist Von has worked almost two years painting figures of heroic stance to depict the bloodchilling encounters and haunting soliloquies: Macbeth's prophetic meeting with the Three Sisters, the dark night of Duncan's murder, Lady Macbeth's guilty madness, the moments before the fatal duel with Macduff.

From the Publisher:

An exciting new edition of the complete works of Shakespeare with these features: Illustrated with photographs from New York Shakespeare Festival productions, vivid readable readable introductions for each play by noted scholar David Bevington, a lively personal foreword by Joseph Papp, an insightful essay on the play in performance, modern spelling and pronunciation, up-to-date annotated bibliographies, and convenient listing of key passages.

From the Inside Flap:

Infamously known as the cursed Scottish play, Macbeth is perhaps Shakespeare's darkest tragedy. When General Macbeth is foretold by three witches that he will one day be King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth convinces him to get rid of anyone who could stand in his way including committing regicide. As Macbeth ascends to the throne through bloody murder, he becomes a tyrant consumed by fear and paranoia.
