In the play Macbeth there was a lot of stuff that went on that could keep the reader interested. One of these things are all of the murders in the play. With all these murders happening, there has to be someone to blame. In the play Lady Macbeth is to blame for the murders because she called evil upon herself, influenced Macbeth to be a murder, and she wanted power.
Lady Macbeth plans to invite king Duncan over for dinner, but really she is convincing Macbeth to murder him. She influences him to kill Duncan because he is the only one standing in the way of Macbeth becoming king. Lady Macbeth plans the killing but convinces Macbeth to do the dirty deed. Lastly, Lady Macbeth is one of the causes of Macbeth’s failure because she repeatedly questions Macbeth’s manhood until she persuades him to make a bad choice. “When you durst do it then you were a man” (1.7.53-58).
Macbeth is one of William Shakespeare’s iconic tragedies, a story where no one truly wins. Although the rise and fall of a tyrannical ruler who massacred to achieve his rank is disastrous enough, the true tragedy is the story of Lady Macbeth. A strong woman forced into a pit of self-loathing by a misogynistic society, who then is mercilessly blamed for the actions of her husband, who hid his cruelty behind cowardice. A woman who was so desperate for relief from her own inner agony, that she was blinded to Macbeth’s clever rouse. A rouse no one else ever saw through, yet Lady Macbeth bears the brunt of the blame. Women have been being blamed for the actions of men for far too long, stories of witches casting spells on a passerby, seductresses
William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a five-act play that tells the tragic story of a Scottish nobleman. In the beginning of the drama, the main character, Macbeth, kills a traitor who was leading an army against Duncan, the King of Scotland. However, when three witches tell Macbeth that he will become the ruler of Scotland, he loses his loyalty for king and country. Encouraged by this prediction, Macbeth slowly descends into a state of evil, becoming willing to kill anybody in his way of the crown, including the king himself. After successfully killing Duncan and becoming king, Macbeth hires two murderers to kill Banquo, whose offspring threaten Macbeth’s rule. But when the two murderers are about to assassinate Banquo, a mysterious third
When it came to Duncan’s murder, a lot of factors came into play. It began first with the Weird Sisters telling Macbeth of his future king status. The plot continued when Macbeth told his wife of this news. Duncan’s death was sealed when Lady Macbeth persuaded his husband into killing Duncan. The two main causes of Duncan’s death was Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The couple both played their parts in this situation. So was Lady Macbeth more responsible for killing Duncan, or was Macbeth more responsible? In this scenario, Lady Macbeth was more responsible.
In the play of Macbeth, there are some characters that could be responsible for Duncan’s death. I personally think Lady Macbeth is the cause of Duncan's murder. She is the most ambitious to kill the king in the beginning of the play, pressuring Macbeth. Lady Macbeth was persuasive of driving Macbeth to commit the murder. She manipulates him to go through with the murder even though he was very doubtful about it. Despite of the fact other characters may have partially play a part to the murder of King Duncan such as the three witches and Macbeth himself, she was the main motivator of the execution as her role was the most prominent. Without her arousing Macbeth into committing the murder of Duncan, this killing would not have happened.
Lady Macbeth, cruel wife of Macbeth, assisted in the murder of King Duncan and his servants. She is a violently ambitious and manipulative woman, so much so that she thought up and planned the idea to kill King Duncan and convinced Macbeth to kill Duncan and his servants so that he could take Duncan’s place on the throne. Macbeth carried out with the deed, while the feeling of guilt invaded his mind almost compromising the plan, when Lady Macbeth stepped in and completed the plan mercilessly. As she finished the deed that Macbeth couldn’t carry out, (putting the daggers back with the servants), she compliments herself for being so brave and mentally stronger than some men.
As soon as she heard Macbeth’s prophecy, she was willing to do anything to get him into the position of king. She was even willing to aid in the murder of innocent people who stood in the way of Macbeth’s ascension to the crown like, King Duncan. Her greed led to Macbeth’s downfall. When Macbeth stated that he was questioning his intentions to kill the king, she pushed him and assisted in the plotting. “We will proceed no further in this business. /
Macbeth is More Responsible In Shakespeare’s play “Macbeth” Macbeth is seen to be as the one responsible for King Duncan’s murder, as Macbeth’s hands were the ones that actually killed King Duncan. However, while Macbeth may be thought of as ultimately responsible for his actions, but there are other influences that actually show on a closer inspection of the text, the three main influences to his decision are Lady Macbeth, himself, and the witches. This is (in my opinion) convincing evidence that Macbeth is completely responsible for the murder of King Duncan.
Lady Macbeth tries to mask her guilt by covering up for her husband, but eventually comes to grips with her own instability. In Macbeth, Shakespeare asserts that power drives the title character and his wife to insanity, particularly after their conspiracy to kill Duncan. For starters, prior to killing Duncan, Macbeth imagines the likely consequences of his future actions and whether or not they signal his destiny. At the beginning

Macbeth evidently undergoes a mental process by which he come round to the idea or murdering Duncan. He does this as a result of his wife’s manipulation, her leverage being his manliness. Without the role of Lady Macbeth, the murder of King Duncan would never have occurred in the play. Lady Macbeth had already been plotting for the murder since she received the letter concerning the three prophecies by the witches. Although Macbeth had sinister thoughts about having the throne, Macbeth would have never dared to take it upon himself to kill King Duncan and steal the throne from

She had the total control over her husband in plotting the murder of Duncan and chiding her husband for not acting more like a man; yet, despite this participation, she seems to be the main motivation for the revealing of the Macbeth’s stand in the usurpation of the throne: Hie thee hither, That I may pour my spirits in thine ear, And chastise with the valor of my tongue All that impedes thee from the golden round Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem To have thee crowned withal.(Macbeth 1.5.23-28) Next to this part some of her speeches for ambition of power portray her as an unnatural character that almost certify her as the fourth witch of the play. During her persuasion her cruelty and tendency for violence is intentionally brought to light when she claims even to kill her own child for what she has promised to do: I have given suck, and know How tender ’tis to love the

Macbeth’s one critical decision was largely influenced by his wife, Lady Macbeth, and this influence is exemplified early on in the play. In Act I Scene vii, Macbeth seemingly decides against killing King Duncan; however, Lady Macbeth persuades him to go ahead with the deed through her compelling argument. Moreover, Lady Macbeth’s ability to influence her husband so greatly demonstrates the strength of their marriage. By appealing both emotionally and logically to her husband, Lady Macbeth very easily convinces him against his own conscience.
