Macbeth

by William Shakespeare

No literary work - not Hamlet, Lear, Divine Comedy, Don Quixote, Iliad, Faust, Aeneid - can match the fusion of feelings, emotions and suspense that this magnificent piece has. She is not only perfect in terms of rhythm, language and characterization, but also contains layers and layers of philosophy and psychology of the human condition, add it to the charm of Lady Macbeth would be enough to topple Crime and Punishment as best psychological work, there is also a spectacle of wonderful scenes in the end, though sad, and the end is only the wonder of Shakespeare's art, as something written 400 years ago continues to be so wonderful and splendid.
