SPOILing Macbeth


For my nephew, ‘Brian‘, as part of my ongoing mission to help him get a 4 in his Shakespeare exam.

At this stage, by the way, I still have no idea when his exam is, or whether he has yet read or seen the play.

I’m not sure if he knows, himself …

My guiding principle here was to get the entire narrative on one page, arranged so any key piece of action could be identified, and with key scenes highlighted for ease of reference.

This synopsis is based on the play text at http://www.opensourceshakespeare.org
