Ambition can be used for good or evil. At the beginning of the play, Lady Macbeth uses her ambition for cruelty and wants to gain power. Lady Macbeth shows her cruelty by saying, “Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe topful of direst cruelty!” (1.5.38--41). What she means by this is that if Macbeth is too scared and cowardly to kill Duncan then she wishes that she was not a woman so that she could do it herself. She persuades her husband into killing Duncan by saying, “screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we’ll not fail” (1.7.60--61).
To sum up, She tries to have control over her husband power by ordering him to follow her plan of killing Duncan and expresses a negative attitude towards him commenting, “But screw your courage to the sticking-place,/And we 'll not fail.”(1.7) With the purpose of making Macbeth king so she can have a different kind of power were she controls him letting him be only the image of power. Lady Macbeth’s manifest her need to have power over her husband when she states “That which hath made them drunk hath made me bold: What hath quenched them hath given me fire.” Because she is showing pleasure for her accomplish to manage manipulating Macbeth to kill Duncan her desire of control is
In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth uses two primary methods in order to convince Macbeth into committing the deed. Initially, Lady Macbeth begins to test Macbeth's manhood in order to persuade him to kill King Duncan. In a conversation between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, Lady Macbeth convinces him into thinking that only through the murder of Duncan will he be considered a man to her and states “That made you break this enterprise to me? When you durst do it, then you were a man; And, to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man” (Shakespeare i, vii). During this period, men were admired and were held up on society based upon their manhood.
“Yet do I fear thy nature. It is too fully o’ the milk of human kindness” (Act I, scn V, 16-17). Lady Macbeth was rying to get her husband to kill King Duncan so Macbeth can take the throne. Macbeth is not merciless enough to take those steps on his own. Lady Macbeth feels as is if Macbeth is too kind to kill Duncan and get the crown on his own.
Although Macbeth’s conscious is in this state, it becomes overridden by his ambition for power. Even while knowing killing someone is sinful, he still murders his beloved king and friend, Duncan. Without Lady Macbeth pressuring him the way she did, Macbeth will not gain the ambition and immense strive for power he does
Lady Macbeth persuades and manipulates Macbeth by pointing out his insecurities successfully and pressuring him into murdering the king. Along with this, Lady Macbeth also questions Macbeth’s manhood and masculinity when he does not want to carry out the plan when she says “When you durst do it, then you were a man;//And to be more than what you were, you would//Be so much more the man” (Shakespeare 1.7.49-51). By saying these things, Lady Macbeth persuades her husband to believe that murdering the king will be his redemption from being a
She is the person who urges Macbeth to murder King Duncan. The reason she does this is on the grounds that she needs more power and needs to wind up ruler. Woman Macbeth supports him by saying things like "… resemble the blameless bloom yet be the serpent under it"(act 1 scene 5 lines 72-73). By saying this, she is urging him to murder individuals so as to end up lord. Macbeth has a few fears about murdering the lord yet Lady Macbeth addresses his masculinity by letting him know that on the off chance that he was a genuine man, he would slaughter him.
Macbeth and lady Macbeth both became crazy because of the deadly deeds that they committed. In the beginning of the play blood is shown as honor and bravery and towards the end of the play its shown as guilt and remorse. Lady Macbeth starts this off when she asks the spirits to .”Make thick my blood”.Stop up the access and passage to remorse..” (1,5,33-34).What she means by this is that she wants to poison her own soul to be insensitive and not feel remorse. She doesn't not want to feel remorse because of the deed that she's about to make. Macbeth had guilt, not like lady Macbeth.
Lady Macbeth, Macbeth’s wife, for better or for worse had stuck by Macbeth. That being said she shares a much of the responsibility of Macbeth’s fall from grace. She pretty much is a catalyst to Macbeth’s actions, she pushed him to do things that he wouldn’t have. She pushes Macbeth to murder King Duncan by challenging Macbeth’s manhood; she also uses disturbing images of their unborn child to push Macbeth. “And dash'd the brains out” such a disturbing image that shakes Macbeth.
