Three Structural Flaws in Shakespeare’s Macbeth

Macbeth – Three Structural Flaws

by Thomas M Lahey, tlahe@lahey.com

1) Introduction.  Below, I present three structural flaws that occur in Macbeth.  I found it interesting when I searched (Google and Bing) for “structural flaw, Macbeth”, the searches returned nothing worth reporting.

1.1  First Flaw.  The Letters.  On his journey to Inverness, Macbeth writes letters to his lady, those letters arrive at his home before Macbeth; they arrive in spite of Macbeth racing to Inverness so that his lady can prepare Inverness for their king’s visit.
