William Shakespeare 's Macbeth was undoubtedly one of his most famous works with big titles such as Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet. What most people don’t know is that Macbeth has one of the most infamous reputations for the supernatural. The play was said to be written between 1599 and 1606 so I’m guessing that when word of a curse got out, it probably spread pretty fast because there wasn’t much to do back then. It’s said that the first play was performed in April in 1611. Since then countless accidents have occurred and no one is sure whether to blame the curse or if performers were just careless. Even Shakespeare had to jump in there and perform because so many people got hurt. There are incidents that have somewhat of a logical explanation …show more content…
In my research I was amazed with how much I could find on the Macbeth curse. It makes me not want to say it anymore because I’m pretty superstitious. I actually didn’t mind the movie because even If I still couldn’t understand what they were saying, I was able to see what was going on and put it all together. I sort of dazed off while reading it because it was hard to know what they meant. It is a pretty good play. There is a bunch of action in the play which makes it easier to watch. All the other Shakespeare plays were kind of boring. I also found out that this was based on a true story. Although most of it was probably changed by Shakespeare to please King James. There actually was a King Duncan and he was betrayed by a man called Macbeth because he thought that he should rule himself. The real Macbeth was a very successful king for nearly 20 years. In Shakespeare’s version, Macbeth seemed to only rule for a short period of time. Duncan’s son Malcolm eventually defeated him and took his place back on top just like in the book. I forgot when this all happened but it was way before Shakespeare’s time. Overall, after all the research, I choose to believe that the curse is very real because it’s hard to turn your head away from all the “accidents” that have happened over the years. Thanks alot
