THE SETTING OF MACBETH
DUNSINANE HILL
Dunsinane Hill is a hill on which Macbeth has a castle. This is where he stays to await Malcolm's troops.
The story of Macbeth takes place during the Middle Ages, in Scotland, Europe.Macbeth is the only Shakespearean play that's set in Scotland.
This is because of the fact that after Queen Elizabeth I died in 1603, and King James VI of Scotland was crowned King James I of England, just a few years before the play was written.
Since all plays were performed at the discretion of the monarch, Shakespeare had a major interest in stroking James's ego.

This theme actually exists throughout the play and does not veer from it.

Instead, the atmosphere simply becomes darker and more ominous over the course of the play.
