Read the Complete Play

Find the Play Online

Shakespeare's works are available in the public domain, which means that it's fairly easy to find the text of an entire play online. You can find a few examples below if you'd like to read the complete play. Keep in mind that these texts generally don't include notes that help explain or expand on parts of the text. For a version with notes and critical commentary, you might purchase a copy of the Arden Shakespeare edition. You can purchase a copy of Macbeth from the publisher.

Find the Play at UCLA Library or in Your Public Library
