"Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?"
That line is not from the latest Zack Synder blood-letting but from a 400-year old play about a husband and wife murder team whose bloody rise and fall still leaves us with more questions than answers. The play, of course, is Macbeth, which will form our introduction to if not the world's greatest writer than the world's most frequently titled world's greatest writer.
Our whirlwind survey of Shakespeare will touch on comedies, histories, and tragedies; plays suitable for outdoor performance before children and plays that will fill your mind with huge and mighty forms and be a trouble to your dreams.
