Macbeth: The True Story - used book

Thanks to William Shakespeare, the name Macbeth has become byword for political ambition realised by bloody violence. The character of Macbeth in the celebrated Shakespearean tragedy is based on an actual Scottish king who lived and died five hundred years before he was immortalised. However, the Macbeth thus conjured up bears almost no resemblance whatsoever to the king who ruled Scotland between 1040 and 1057. In fact, it is difficult to exaggerate how great an injustice history and Shakespeare have inflicted on Mac Bethad mac Findlaich. Fiona Watson has uncovered, buried beneath the layers of myth, a history that is entirely different from, but just as extraordinary as, that recounted by Shakespeare. The historical Macbeth was a remarkable man living in turbulent times. As ruler of Alba (Scotland) he sat on one of the oldest and most established thrones in Western Europe. It is true that he killed Duncan, the previous king, but this was the normal, if brutal, method of regime change in Dark Age Scotland. Duncan's rash behaviour, culminating in a humiliating military defeat in northern England, was reason enough to prompt his removal before Scotland's security was further compromised. The reality is that Macbeth quickly established himself as an effective and popular ruler. As a Celtic warrior-king, he was responsible for the maintenance of his people's dominance of northern Britain. A friend to the Church and valiant protector of his people, the real Macbeth epitomised the biographies,europe,great britain,historical,history and criticism,literature and fiction,medieval,movements and periods,shakespeare Medieval, Quercus Publishing

Lesekritik: Watson is a fine historian and in this well-executed biography of one of Scotland's most famous kings she reveals that the real monarch of the 11th century bears little resemblance to Shakespeare's famous creations. Digging deep, she paints a lucid picture of Celtic warrior-king of some sophistication who was respected and loved... A fascinating read through Scotland's Middle Ages.' Big Issue. She does an excellent job of setting the stage for her hero with her thorough survey of the period in which he lived and discussion of the nature of early medieval kingship.' Sunday Times.
