Macbeth and Marxism, AGAIN!

Right I'm abit confused about marxism, can somebody explain it in really simple terms?
And then how it relates to this question? and what the question means?
"Shakespeares Dramatic Technique in Macbeth serves only to strengthen the position of the ruling classes To what extent would a Marxist approach agree with this view?"
Cheers

You looked here http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marxism & here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbeth.

Seems a load of nonsense to me but Im dumb.

See if this helps of makes things worse.

Marxism is a theory about the forces that act to change society. It in essence says that throughout human history change comes from the development of the means of production(how good we are at producing things) and the effect of this on different groups within that society. It rejects the "great men" of history idea that looks at historical changes as the result of particular figures.

When I read Shakespeare's Macbeth it seems to be at its heart be about the Divine right of rulers. The use of mysticism to put forward the idea of a guiding force that will ensure the passing down of power along the chosen line.

This idea of Divine right to rule is important in maintaining a feudal rule and therefore by going down this line the play reinforces the idea that the present monarch is there by the grace of god, and therefore should not be challenged.

Use Google (and Google scholar)

Here's one to get you started: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marxism

I have had to trawl through a lot of complicated Wiki articles for assignments too, but that's the joy of it. Keep researching and you'll crack it or find something that finally makes sense.

I used to visit the library to research stuff for school projects... I still have flashbacks of looking through encyclopedias at primary school... *shudders*

Haven't used my library card in about 10 years or so now :-D
