These are three of Shakespeare's greatest, and most tragic, plays. In each story, the main characters die; cruel Lord MacBeth, unhappy King Lear, and the doomed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. They die because they, or others, are weak, greedy or very foolish. But, like real people, they have good qualities and moments of greatness too. From p. 4 of cover.
