Do You Believe In Magic? Essay on Macbeth by Frank McGuinness

From its opening, Macbeth confronts its audience with an enormous question. Do you believe in magic? Do you have faith in black magic? Do you believe in witches and witchcraft? This is a play that sets itself in motion as a spell. It creates a world that is out to agitate and antagonise, unsettle and disturb.
