    "Read this first!"

    With all the literary and cultural references to Macbeth I felt as though I had read it at some time in my life. Not so, and I decided that I probably should. I purchased Macbeth and not very far into it I realized that I had not a clue as to what was going on. Back to Audible to find a "guide". A Study Guide to Macbeth is a remarkable book. Mark Breitenberg brings to life not only the play itself but brings to the reader a unique insight into the time of Shakespeare and the time the play was first performed. Even if you are familiar with Macbeth, you will learn so much more from this book. After reading Mark Breitenbeg's book, I returned to the play and what had at first been a jumble of incomprehensible chatter turned into a literary feast. Treat yourself to this one!
