Re: Macbeth and William Shakespeare


       Can anyone tell me why William Shakespears in his play "Macbeth" 
portrayed Macbeth as a bad king?  Was there a political reason?  Did the 
English government want him to do this?  I understand that he had to "modify" 
history in some of his other plays to please Queen Elizabeth I.
       Thank you.
