“I have done the deed.” (Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 2)

Macbeth, Shakespeare’s darkest play, takes us on a journey of astonishing intensity and great psychological insight from “horrible imaginings”, to the acting of deeds too dreadful to be named, and on through the inexorable chain of their dire consequences, mocking human pretensions to self-awareness and self-determination, and exposing a fearful abyss that lurks beneath the conscious mind and its attempts to rationalise the world.
