No matter what crime and it 's motive, they should still be regulated and justified. For this instance, Mrs. Patrick Maloney of "Lamb to the Slaughter" is guilty of murdering her own husband. Why would she do such a thing if she loved her husband so much? This leads to one of many points: Mrs. Maloney 's actions decided on impulse. Because she let her emotions control her, it resulted in bad decisions and the killing of her own husband.
Even though Lady Macbeth has ambition like her husband she fears Macbeth’s nature “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature; it is too full o' th' milk of human kindness to catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great, art not without ambition, but without the illness should attend it” (15-20). After reading the letter from her husband which recounts the witches' prophesy, Lady Macbeth's thoughts immediately turn to murder. The problem with that is Macbeth has ambition, but he doesn’t have the nerve to see it through.
Early on in the play Lady Macbeth was characterized as a ruthless person, but later on in the play the audience softens up on her because she reveals her weak side. Lady Macbeth was a ruthless person, and no one expected it because even today in society women are not associated with evil characteristics, she demonstrates this when she continuously insults her husband. For example, when Macbeth changes his mind about killing Duncan, Lady Macbeth scolds him, and insults his masculinity and persuades him by saying that he owes it to her to kill Duncan.

With this in mind, usually relationships
She did kill her husband so she has to be punished. That makes sense. At the same time, I think she could have a mitigating factor because she had battered women syndrome. What she had done was wrong, but, as she says, I can see that she could not deal with her husband anymore. It is difficult for me to decide whether she goes to a mental facility or prison.

Hamlet is speaking his dagger-like words to Gertrude which confirms of her adulterous acts and Gertrude responds: “O Hamlet, speak no more. / Thou turn’st mine eyes into my very soul, / And there I see such black and grained spots” (3.4.88-90).

In the novel, 124 is a prominent symbol that is instrumental in developing Morrison’s theme, an individual’s acts of vengeance can mask that person’s desire for acceptance. Although Beloved reaches out to Sethe through 124 in acts of revenge, her ultimate goal is to reunite with her mother, who essentially thought to spare her daughter from the horrors of slavery. The very first sentence of the book tells that “124 was spiteful,” setting the initial tone of the novel to be malicious (Morrison 3). At this point in time, Beloved has been murdered, depicting the house and everything going on in Sethe’s life to be unsettling. Beloved personifies the house, giving it character, proven through the “white dress [that] knelt down next to [Denver’s] mother… (the dress) helping out the other” (Morrison 35).
Woman Macbeth, on getting the letter, supports murder as she sees this is perhaps the main chance to accomplish their desire. Macbeth permits his wife to control him by blaming him for not being a "man" and communicates that she would slaughter her own child to have their craving satisfied. "I have given suck, and know How delicate 'tis to cherish the darling that drains me: I would, while it was grinning in my face, Have pluck 'd my areola from his boneless gums, and dash 'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this". Yet Macbeth, being solid rationally and physically, does not put a stop to the homicide arrangement while his heart cautions him of the destruction staggering in the region. Rather than listening to his still, small voice, he stifles his blame and proceeds with his desire.
The dramatization of Desdemona's and Emilia's murders challenge some of the most fundamental Assumption of Mary of Elizabethan society and of our own that outsiders should not interfere between husband and wife, and that an adulterous woman deserves death. She began by wishing for a humans 's adventurous existence "she wished / That heaven had made her such a man" and die, grieving, maw in the quandary of a woman Genus Emilia's failure to understand what Desdemona is saying here completes Desdemona's isolation. At this point, Desdemona alone grasps the gravitational force of the site, Emilia dismissing her anticipation of imminent death: "Come, come, you talk". Desdemona is killed not only by Othello and Iago but also by all those who see her humiliated and beatnik in public, and fail to intervene. Siemon has noted the trend to tone down the violence of Desdemona's physical struggle with Othello.
