A notice says 'Adopted from the original text for easy and enjoyable reading.' It starts out with Scotland having just driven out some Norsemen under the leadership of General Macbeth. Macbeth is told he will be a king. Macbeth's wife is the one who wants to kill Duncan and make sure that Macbeth becomes king. The deed is done even though Macbeth at first has second thoughts about their plans.
Banquo and his son manage to get away and become Macbeth's next targets. Macbeth sees Banquo's ghost. Macbeth gets more prophecies from the three witches. Two of the prophecies would seem to make Macbeth unbeatable, but prophecies can become truths in different ways.
After the story there's a text section titled Some Interesting People Live in the Dictionary. This is followed by another text entry called Mollycoddle. Then there's one called The Riddle of Angkor.
