She emasculates Macbeth and challenges his bravery, which to him is the essence of a being a man, "coward." Compelling her husband by giving him an ultimatum, be a coward or kill the king.
Shakespeare and Golding have both created villains that add tension to their stories. Tybalt appears throughout the play to only act villainous to protect his families, “solemnity.” At different times in the play we can truly see Tybalt’s explosiveness which sometimes has devastating consequences.
