“Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promis’d. Yet do I fear thy nature, It is too full o’ th’ milk of human kindness to catch the nearest way” (1.5.13--16). In The Tragedy of Macbeth by William Shakespeare, to Lady Macbeth, the “milk of human kindness” is wrongful doing and no self-respecting human will have any use for it. Lady Macbeth is ambitious, and fears that her ‘milky’ husband lacks the mental strength to kill Duncan. At the beginning of the play Lady Macbeth tries to control Macbeth and tell him what to do.
In spite of the fact that the narrator loves the old man, he kills him because he afraid of his blue “evil eye”. Similarly, the protagonist in “A Rose for Emily” is Emily Grierson. The house that she lives in drives her mind to inhabit it in dusty and dark. Miss Emily is a mysterious character. The impression that Miss Emily gives us about her is that she is a “necrophiliac”.
She does not want the heavens to know of her actions as she acknowledges that they are sins. The combined use of figurative language and pleading word choice within Lady Macbeth's monologue display her covet for cruelty instead of nurture with the intention to murder King
The symbols of light acts as their conscience, as they begin to become consumed with the guilt of their actions and spiral out of control. Macbeth’s remorse becomes too strong as he can’t even sleep anymore, because the darkness reminds him of the evilness within him in the darkness. Macbeth recalls, “Methought I thought a voice cry- “sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep”- the innocent sleep” (2.2.47-8) Macbeth becomes paranoid, obsessive, and careless in his actions following his first murder. Lady Macbeth uses the light to hide herself from the darkness and evilness that surrounds her as she “she has light by her continually; ‘tis her command” (5.1.20) The same darkness that she used to commit her murders, to hide her conscience that could’ve prevented her from committing the crimes, is now the one she fears, that she needs protecting from.
She hates Solange because she reminded her of their position, of their reality. Though she is the favoured one between the 2 sisters, she is more venomous in her hatred for her Mistress as she really tried her best to make the mistress drink the poison tea. At the end of the play, she wanted to die as the mistress so she can die free in her fantasy world and can break her sister out from servitude by making her a criminal. The Mistress Age: Late

She is the symbol of dark world. Witches use Macbeth’s envy Malcolm and suffered him in fear. However, Hecate ruined all of good quality that Macbeth had.

Macbeth was constantly making decisions that affected his future and because he needed help making them, was misled by what he thought were trusted sources. The witches, Lady Macbeth, and Macbeth himself all show some form of madness throughout the play. The witches are mad because of their obsession of causing misfortune for no reason. Lady Macbeth becomes a power-hungry murder that in the end causes their guilty consciousness to lead them to their deaths. Overall, madness was frequently found in Shakespeare's play, Macbeth, presented not only by characters as a trait but also as conflicts/.
Lady Macbeth says Macbeth becoming king is “the ornament of life” (1.7.42), and her ambition causes her to do anything to achieve it at the slightest possibility. This includes sexual taunting by saying Macbeth would not be a true man if he did not pursue their dreams relentlessly. After much time partaking in sinful actions, Lady Macbeth starts to fade into the nothingness described by Aquinas. She begins sleepwalking and recognizing her own personal guilt in the deaths of Duncan and Banquo. Eventually, she falls so deep into oblivion that she has no desire to live anymore.
But at the root of it all is the relationship between Macbeth and his Lady, whose lack of knowledge and faith in themselves drives them toward insanity and a horrific fate. Their relationship does not represent nature, Shakespeare grossly exaggerated his masculinity towards women.
