The only way for Lady Macbeth fulfill her ambitions is by influencing Macbeth to murder King Duncan and take his throne away. Lady Macbeth manipulates Macbeth persuasively throughout their conversation: “When you durst do it, then you were a man; / And to be more than what you were, you would / Be so much more than man” (1.7, 50-52). Macbeth shows weakness and cowardly on trying to murder King Duncan. It proves how Lady Macbeth tries to corrupt him by doubting his manhood. It shows how badly Lady Macbeth is trying to persuade him to turn his loyalty away from Kind Duncan.
She became an image known for her ambitious nature. Her thirst for power and disregard for life was shocking to the audience, and her husband as well. The moment she learns of the prophecies, she decides to stand behind Macbeth and see him to the throne. She is immediately set on her quest for more power. As it reads “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt be/ What thou art promised” (1.5.13-14).This moment is very important because it is the turning point where she decides that she might have to kill to fulfill her quest for royalty.

Iago let his vengeful ways and deceitful motives alter his decisions while Othello appears in the opening acts as the very personification of self control”(Harbage). The two characters are meant to balance each other out, but Iago gets too deep in Othello’s head, leaving him susceptible to lash out. Shakespeare wants to bring attention to the fact that no matter how hard one tries, the darkness creeps on eventually and wins. By this point in the play, all the character’s true colors have been shown. “Othello is forced to recognize that he lives in a tragic world, and he pays the price” which causes him to have his tragic downfall(Harbage).
She even calls upon the dark spirits to take away her soft womanliness. The Witches use words to spark the deep desire within Macbeth to become king. They prophesize that he will one day become king, but, they also prophesize that although Banquo may not be king himself he will produce a long line of heirs to the throne. Macbeth sees this as a threat and he ultimately ends up murdering Banquo and his family. The Witches words spark the conflict within the play.
Greed is the downfall of all man. Who said this? We don’t know, but one thing is for sure, any wise man would rephrase this when he hears of literature’s most notorious and sinister woman. There is little doubt behind every great man’s success, there is most likely a woman, but behind the great evils of Macbeth, there was a woman too; her name Lady Macbeth. Known for her way with words of manipulation and famed by her sinister masterminding of great King’s Duncan’s murder, her legacy was one that took a cold dark turn; when her nearly in-existent conscience embarks her on a slow and perilous descend into hysteria, and ultimately her demise.
She aids Macbeth, and both do what is necessary to obtain their goals. She calls upon the fates “Come you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here and fill me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe, top-full of direst cruelty!”(1.5.42-25). It illustrates that Lady Macbeth desires on becoming the Queen of Scotland if her and Macbeth succeed in regicide. Also, this shows Lady Macbeth hinting at Macbeth’s masculinity and competence as she wants the fates to unsex her so she can perform the regicide by herself. Further shows how hellbent she is on becoming Queen.
At the beginning of the play, Macbeth was a noble and loyal person, but by the end of the play, his “vaulting ambition” had taken over him. This caused him to become malicious and nihilistic and above all murderous, Macbeth portrays a tragic hero. Shakespeare portrays a tragic hero as someone who is noble and valiant but turns out to have a tragic flaw and Macbeth portrays this by fighting for his country and king but then murdering the king because of his hamartia, “his vaulting ambition”. Macbeth is greatly responsible for his downfall, but the witches have an impact on Macbeth’s actions. In Greek tragedies characters face a point in which they turn towards death, almost all plays have someone die and, in the end, justice prevails.
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. Modern audiences would take this as villainy whereas Elizabethan audiences might’ve understood it as courage rather than evil. On the other hand, Roger appears to be an extended metaphor, depicting the evil Golding believed festooned in all humans. Golding creates Roger as psychotic a character the audience truly dislike.
