From the Paper:

"In this paper, I will look at the connections between medicine and monarchy in Shakespeare's "All's Well that Ends Well" and "Macbeth". Though the two plays differ greatly in tone and story, they share similarities in terms of the way they use medicine as an integral part of their storylines and themes. In All's Well, the use of medicine is primarily plot-driven: the king is sick, and the woman that heals him asks for the hand of her beloved in marriage. In "Macbeth", the use of medicine is more thematic: the Scottish kingdom becomes sick because its king and queen, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are murderers, she loses her wits, and the only remedy is death."
