Macbeth, a tragedy written by Shakespeare is called by many a cursed drama for inclusion of spoken spells. Macbeth, a duke of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself. Macbeth is renowned not just for its savage, coruscating take on murderous ambition but also for carrying a curse. The casting spell for witchcraft is actually written in this play, thus making it the scariest plays off the stage as well.
Key Words: Witchcraft, cultures, mystical powers, prophecies, obsessed with the supernatural, number three, giving into evil, to know by the worst means the worst
