Subject:     Macbeth: A Novel

 

I just completed A.J. Hartley’s and David Hewson’s Macbeth: A Novel, and I enjoyed it very much.

 

The novel is not a retelling so much as a work of its own merit that fleshes out events of the play and Holinshed that in many ways better explains the motives and actions of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth (Skena in the novel), creating sympathetic but deeply flawed characters.
