here is the introduction:

Ogrish turpitude and stentorian clamors, common moods in the acclaimed imperfunctory plays of the genius dramatist William Shakespeare. His novels still mesmerize theater fantasists just like they did in the Globe almost six hundred years ago in the growing town of London. From all the Elizabethan performances, none of Shakespeare's plays reached such an appraisal, as did the lugubrious drama The Tragedy of Macbeth. Its characters, so real that seem captured from real life, ensnare the minds of its readers like few books do so; but from all these memorable antagonists, the most passionate and corporeal is the greedy Thane of Cawdor and Glamis, ruler and master of Dunsinade, Macbeth. His Brobdingnagian thirst of power drives Macbeth's chivalrous soul into a murdering demon, blinded by his unquenchable greed.

The concept of ambition plays the guiding force of Macbeth, which is the principal cause of the plot's dramatic introduction and finale.
