Macbeth is Shakespeare's shortest play and most popular tragedy. Shakespeare's approach to a swifter kind of action should leave the audience no time to think.  Its intensity is most vividly realized in the play's language and through its repeated words and images. Shakespeare is writing about corrupted power, violence, and the relationship between the dark and light forces. He evokes this through one of his greatest creations - the character of Macbeth - a difficult but willing commitment to darkness.
