Masculinity is the possession of the qualities traditionally associated with men. Lady Macbeth constantly questions Macbeth’s manhood through the story.
So Athena and Hera, who mainly used her marriage to Zeus to do her dirty work, plotted against the Trojans. Athena seeking revenge approaches Hector with the guise of Deiphobus, Hector’s brother, while Hector was being hunted down by Achilles, “‘Now, let’s go straight for him. Let’s fight and not hold back our spears, so we can see if Achilles kills us both, then takes the bloodstained trophies to the ships, or whether you’ll destroy him on your spear’” (Homer, Iliad 22. 301-305).

In the dramas Macbeth by William Shakespeare and Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller, the playwrights use the motifs of gender roles and fantasy vs. reality to further characterize the protagonist. Both Shakespeare and Miller use gender roles throughout their dramas to reveal more about the character of the tragic hero. In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth uses her power over Macbeth to convince him that murdering King DUncan is the only path to ensure their prosperity. She expresses this feeling in stating "glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promised. Yet i do fear thy nature; it is too full o'th'milk of human kindness."
Like most things that are society based, religion has evolved alongside our own culture. America is a melting pot of different ethnic backgrounds and cultures making it a perfect place for religion to adapt and flourish. For this analysis, I am drawing from “Civil Religion in America” by Robert N. Bellah (1967) on his ideas of American civil religion. In the text Bellah (1967) argues that civil religion is an important dimension that needs to be recognized in sociology. While Bellah focuses specifically on the United States of America, he still gives a valuable perspective on civil religion and how it plays a part in religion as a whole.

Throughout Macbeth, three characters seem to have control of Macbeth’s action and his life. Lady Macbeth, Macbeth, and the We’ird Sisters all have some type of control over the actions of Macbeth. The wife of the play 's tragic hero, Lady Macbeth, pressures her husband into committing regicide so that she can then become queen of Scotland. Throughout the play, Lady Macbeth constantly diminishes her husband 's manhood forcing him to feel less of a man. Unhae Langis, once wrote that, “Lady Macbeth evokes shame in him [Macbeth] to get him back into the contest.” By constantly shaming her husband, Lady Macbeth holds a great amount of control on the way he sees himself.
Also, due to past disastrous event, specifically when Oedipus killed his father and married his mother, it had angered the gods and cursed the Oedipus’ family. This is evident in the following quote: “Where once the anger of heaven has struck, that house is shaken” (Sophocles, pg.215). It can also reference the gods have the ability to cause great trouble to a person or family.

Lady Macbeth’s rant,
Who could have influenced Macbeth, a peaceful man, into slaying the king for power? The other only character that gained anything from the murder of the king was Macbeth’s wife, Lady Macbeth. This gain is the reason why Lady Macbeth is truly evil. Throughout the play, she commits many deeds that lead to this conclusion. By participating in these deeds, she is responsible for the downfall of Macbeth, who continued on a killing spree to continue to reign in Scotland.
