Introduction

In the beginning Lady Macbeth was just a normal woman who cared about her husband and was happy when he was around. She was proud of him because he was the kings knight and she would do anything for him. Lady Macbeth was very ambitious for her husband to become rich and powerful. She starts to make plans for making this happen as soon as she reads the letter that Macbeth sends to her about what the witches have said about him becoming Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland. As soon as she has finished reading the letter she decides that she will make sure that her husband will be king. Lady Macbeth knows that the only way that her husband can be king is if Duncan dies and the only way that would happen now was if he was murdered. ...read more.

Middle

When Duncan arrives at Macbeth's castle the first thing that he says is how nice it is. He trusts Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. He does not realise that Lady Macbeth is taking him by the hand to his killer. Lady Macbeth has to make her husband think that he must kill Duncan so that he can become king. She tells him that it was his idea and taunts him that he is a coward, which is cruel because Macbeth is very proud of how brave and courageous he is. She uses emotional blackmail to encourage him to change his mind and to kill the king. She also tells him that he must not be in love with her if he will not do it. Macbeth is really cross about this as they have a very good relationship. Before Macbeth kills Duncan, he thinks a lot about it. ...read more.

Conclusion

wonder if Macbeth and Lady Macbeth can have children Lady Macbeth gets drunk while she is waiting for Macbeth to come back from Duncan's room. She has drugged the bodygaurds, but is still worried about the murder. Macbeth comes back to the room and tells her that Duncan is dead. Macbeth is feeling guilty and cannot say the word "Amen". Lady Macbeth orders him to give her the daggers, and after awhile he gives them to her so that the blood can be smeared on the guards. After Duncan has been killed Lady Macbeth starts to feel lonely and scared. Macbeth has changed and he is not nice to her. He is so busy running the country that she is left on her own and she gives into the guilt which preys on her mind until she starts to go mad. She starts to sleep walk and the memory of Duncans death is always with her and will not go away. ...read more.
