5. Theme 1: Karma.

Macbeth

William Shakespeare, 1603
Famous for: Excessive bloodshed, a world gone mad, “Double, double toil and trouble” and other witchy chants.

Up next, she’ll tell you why Macbeth‘s main theme actually has something to teach its audience. That’s right. Shakespeare wanted his viewers to think about consequences.
