Macbeth is a tragedy by William Shakespeare; it is thought to have been first performed in 1606. It dramatises the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. It was first published in the Folio of 1623, possibly from a prompt book, and is Shakespeare's shortest tragedy.
