I have been watching Shakespeare plays since I was six, have a library of about 130 Shakespeare videos, and my book about Shakespeare is in bookstores. My friends and family say I am obsessive about the subject. There is no one reason why Shakespeare wrote the play, however he was probably trying to impress King James I of England (6th of Scotland) who had recently come to the throne. We know this because Banquo (a really good guy in the play) was a real life ancestor of King James and at one point in the play the witches predict that Banquo's decendants will be kings and even show Macbeth a line of kings including King James. Another influence may have been the Gunpowder plot, but this depends on when you believe the play was written. Guy Fawkes and his gang were trying to kill a king and put who they wanted on the throne, just as Macbeth does. Because of all the religious issues at the time (protestants versus Catholics) the message of the play could be that God chooses kings, not men. The Porter's reference to "equivocators" would seem to be a reference to one of the men tried for the Gunpowder Plot who had written about how to lie when being questioned by "equivocating".
