Summary "This volume offers a wealth of critical analysis, supported with ample historical and biographical information, about one of Shakespeare's most enduringly popular and globally influential plays. Its eighteen new chapters represent a broad spectrum of current scholarly and interpretive approaches, from historicist criticism to performance theory to cultural studies. Written to a level that will be both accessible to advanced undergraduates and, at the same time, useful to postgraduates and specialists in the field, this book will greatly enhance any study of Macbeth."--BOOK JACKET.
