291.365 || The Tragedy of Macbeth. on Flickr.
We have this as part of the syllabus for our English Literature exam. I don’t like the play that much - I think Julius Caesar was a play that I enjoyed far more - but it still is a good read anyway. I remember emptying one of Dad’s old cupboards when we were in Tilda, and finding this edition of Macbeth in one corner. Turns out Dad studied it in the final year of his school. And here I am, studying the very same play for my final year in school - 33 years after him!
The book’s a little tattered, but is still in a considerably good shape, and has all of his little notes that he scribbled around the edges and text under-linings to mark important quotes.
I go, and it is done; the bell invites me.
Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell
That summons thee to heaven or to hell.
