Let be clear - Macbeth is an amazing play, full of witches, ghosts, paranoia, envy, revenge...all amazing stuff. Macbeth is my favorite of Shakespeare's plays, hands down. What I did not love was how much this book changed the language of the play. I didn't realize it was a modern translation and it fell flat for me. 5 stars for Macbeth, but 3/5 stars for this version.
