I'm taking a class on Shakespeare right now and he basically did not write or come up with much. Good thing he's dead, he'd be an egotistical man if he knew how much we idolized him now. The Early Modern period was a good time to make up words though, no official spelling was around.

The dude made up his own name: he spelt his surname six different ways, and funnily enough, never in the accepted form as used here.

Link, you should be shot. Macbeth is one of the most badass pieces of literature ever commited to paper.

Macbeth is veryy likely to be written mostly by Middleton. We learned this whole editorial history to it and Middleton wrote a play called The Witch before Shakespeare started Macbeth, and it got censored because it was making fun of royalty. So, Middleton stuck a bunch of his play (some speculate, most of it) into Macbeth and a few years later, the first "official" version came out.
I appreciate Shakespeare but people need to stop looking at him like some sort of genius; his plays were written with other people yet he gets all the cred. You cannot look at his plays as a whole because they were altered all the time by different theatre companies and of course, with no printing press, people were hand writing things out and mistakes happen all the time. So no one knows what Shakespeare originally wrote or thought, his shit is just too old. He did love sex and fart jokes though, he was an entertainer. It's too bad language has evolved so much that we do not really "get" them like the people of his period would have.
But yes, Macbeth is a great story (despite the inconsistancies in the acts) but I'm a bit more fond of Hamlet.

Megadeth totally stole some Hamlet quotes for there song "Kill the king"
Quoth Hamlet
"He generates more light then heat"

Quoth Megadeth
"The devils workshop, generations more smoke then heat"
