The depth of literature is greater than the depth of the greatest ocean. It goes deeper than we could possibly imagine. A classic example of great literature is Mr. William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This is play that most groundlings would have been interested in due to its murder, battling, and occasional humor. A groundling is defined as, “an individual whom was too poor to pay to be able to sit on one of the three levels of the theater, so they payed one penny to stand in ‘the pit’.” After close examination, it is discovered that Macbeth is a spider web with many different themes, messages, and ironies wound up inside it. Many parts of the play still influence literature and entertainment to this day, which shows how universal the human mind is. Shakespeare understands the human mind more than perhaps any other person of his time, and because of that, Macbeth still relates to society today. This is demonstrated through the themes of jealousy, guilt, and rage shown throughout the several acts of the play.
