Even the biggest critic of Shakespeare must accept that the dramatist has exceptional power to see human life more wisely and widely than his contemporary peers. The books about Macbeth are perhaps the most prominent examples that uncover Shakespeare’s impeccable outlook on human life.
There is no denying that the Tragedy of Macbeth’s theme conceives a heart-touching tragic story. It shows the dramatist’s mature vision to portray the truth that both good and evil lie simultaneously in a human soul. The theme even shows how certain circumstances are responsible for the bitter wrestling of good and evil and how sometimes the evil become victorious.
Every reader of the books about Macbeth can understand that evil seeds are present in every individual. Outside forces with some specific situations encourage the seeds to bloom with all their tentacles. The key character of the said tragedy, Macbeth, is a prominent instance to show how a brave and honest man can be a victim to witness the blooming seeds of evil in him. No doubt, William Shakespeare is the best man to draw this domination of narrow and intense natures.
From the beginning of the playwrights’ era, readers witnessed the majority of the plays contained a heroic character, and the whole story was centered on him. Yes, there were evil forces in the story. However, the brave man with extreme heroic traits was strong enough to defeat and tame those evil forces, even sometimes kill them.

A trend that survives with a tragic and evil character capable enough to attract the readers for a long time even after his tragic end.
The best integral part of Macbeth and Shakespeare is the dramatist has the ability to claim authority by an understanding of realities and the existence of human lives. The famous playwright establishes a strong perception that tragedy is an inevitable part of human life. Still, the person behind the tragic situation can’t be a scapegoat for every evil activity. In a word, the dramatist has amicably dwelt upon the several multifarious activities of human nature. Shakespeare never tried to limit his thoughts and words into one specific characteristic of human nature. He always preferred to go for universality, and books of Macbeth bear that allness.
Life’s rich experiences help to understand various aspects of human lives. For a playwright, rich experiences appear as a tool to explore several opportunities to draw a human character with a real but new dimension. This depiction brings an exquisite pleasure in him and helps him explore new ways to show good sense can prevail even in an evil person. Macbeth and his wife Lady Macbeth’s constant pricking of conscience are the best instances of this truth. As a total genius, William Shakespeare has always proved that the outcomes of his thoughts bear an unmatched literary perfection regarding his outlook on life.
