For any fans of Death Note and Shakespeare

I recently completed an informal essay comparing and contrasting elements of Death Note with elements of Shakespeare's Macbeth.

This is a piece that has been a year and a half in the making, or rather a year or so in the considering and a few weeks in the making. I did this purely for my own interest; I am not a student now but my English major instincts were tickling.

I have been a huge fan of Shakespeare's Macbeth since High School. After becoming a fan of Death Note I started noticing a lot of similarities between the two pieces and many of the contrasts seemed to be almost parallel. A few weeks ago I started writing this and it came together pretty quickly.

This is my perspective on how the two can be compared. I welcome other points of view if delivered in a constructive manner.
