Explain how the play Macbeth would be well-suited to the lower, middle, and upper classes of an Elizabethan audience.


Macbeth has mass appeal, and it does not have to pander to its audiences.  It is Shakespeare's shortest tragedy, half as long as Hamlet.  That appeals to everyone.

It's his bloodiest play, by far.  The amount of blood imagery is startling to any audience, any generation.  That appeals to everyone.

Macbeth portrays the murder of the King, God's holy vessel, the worst crime imaginable to any audience.  I do not agree with the former post that a lower class would sympathize with someone murdering a "boss."  Regicide and patricide horrifies everyone, regardless of class.

Most of Shakespeare's contemporaries wrote heavily religious text.  And yet, the play can be read from a Christian standpoint.  This duality is testament to its mass appeal.

The witchcraft scenes were written for James I, not the illiterate lower classes.  Again, the witches are great characters who appeal to everyone, rich and poor, young and old, upper and lower classes.
