Macbeth the King

Macbeth the King

Across a huge colourful canvas, ranging from the wilds of Scotland to
Norway, Denmark and Rome, here is the story of the real MacBeth.

Set aside Shakespeare’s portrait: read instead of his struggle to make
and save a united Scotland.

In this impressively researched and vivid portrayal, Tranter belies the
popular perception of a savage, murderous ambitious king. Instead, he
tells of MacBeth’s struggle to make and save a united Scotland; his
devotion to his great love, the young Queen Gruoch; the humane laws they
fought for; the great battle they were forced to fight. And the terrible
price they paid.
