    Look. See there? See what I did? Simply typing that doesn't make it how the story was actually told.

    But forgetting all that, let's look at the untrue aspect that this is a murder mystery novel. Firstly, Macduff has an alibi whereas Macbeth can be put at the scene of the crime. Oh, and let's not forget Macbeth's several confessions. Hmm. What else? Ah yes, she also brought up the point that Macduff's reaction to Duncan's body must've been rehearsed. Well, would people ever actually talk like "A dagger of the mind, a false creation proceeding from the heat oppressed brain?" The true answer, no. This was all Shakespeare's style and no one would ever actually talk like that. So really, Macduff's reaction is justifiable.

    And the third murderer? Unlikely it is that Macbeth would ask Macduff to be involved in the murder of his friend, Banquo. Especially since that Macbeth was trying so fretfully hard to keep it all secret from his court.

    Moving on. Lady Macbeth's father? Oh my freakin' god. You can't take any of this seriously. And if you do, shame on you. Seriously? Are you serious? I've heard some pretty stupid theories when discussing controversial media, but this is definitely way up on my list of Most Stupid.

    Because let's not forget that Macbeth was a real Scottish king and this whole work of fiction was based on the real coup that the real Macbeth staged, okay? Geez.

    Ok man, you've proven to me how stupid I am for considering that theory to be true, and that your's is absolutely true! I feel soooo stupid now. *rolls eyes*

    It's been over a year since we read it in my senior English class.

    Um... I don't know what I say. I remember it being okay. Nothing that I'd consider fantastic, but nothing that I'd consider bad, either.

    I saw that quote by totsean in my literature textbook. I think that's the generally accepted explanation of Macbeth, of who did the killing and what not.
