Responding to Ethanˇ¦s third question, I think Jamesian interpretation is easier to be revealed in the play, Macbeth. As Jamesian reading suggests, Macbeth could hardly be allowed to be triumph. Of the themes which run throughout, the kingship theme links closely with that of justice and natural order, for those are qualities for which the virtuous king stands. If Macbeth can follow the rules after he gains the crown, this play might be triumph. Macbeth covets the power and respect that accompanies kingship, and he desires it for his heir, hence the force of the apparition which shows him a line of ˇ§gold-bound browsˇ¨, descended from Banguo. Yet when he gains the crown, except his power, which he uses destructively. He becomes not a king, but a tyrant.
