By the end it is revealed that Lise is the cause of her death. She plans her death by making Richard kill her. However, instead of making Lise a damsel who is the victim in Richards murder, Spark twists the narrative and makes Richard a pawn in Lise’s game. In The Driver 's Seat, Spark writes that Lise is the one driving and forcing Richard to go with her, not the other way around (87). Lise is calling the shots, she is in the driver 's seat, metaphorically in the sense that she holds the authority, and literally in that she physically has to drive Richard to the place where she instructs him to kill her.

The Gilead society has used its power and corrupted the original story by taking the phrase literally, sending the Handmaids to a certain death in the colonies if they cannot bear children after a specified time. During the Prayvaganza, the Commander in charge of the service claims that the young girls’ arranged marriages benefit women by saying, “We’ve given them more than we’ve taken away...think of the trouble they had before..some of them were desperate, they starved themselves thin or pumped their breasts full of silicone, had their noses cut off. Think of the human misery”(Atwood 219). By saying
His next task is approaching Othello to tell him that Desdemona has been cheating on him with Cassio. Jealousy spreads to Othello as Iago's plan starts taking effect. To provide evidence for this accusation, Iago plants a handkerchief of Desdemona's in Cassio's house. Othello's anger and insecurity allow him to be persuaded very easily by this flimsy evidence that he believes proves Desdemona's guilt. In order for this plan to work out, Iago had to kill his wife, Cassio, and Roderigo.
This perversion of one of the most sacred acts of motherhood enhances the horror of the length she would cross to achieve her goal. However, it also implies that considering Lady Macbeth as merely a brutal, malicious woman stirring her husband to slaughter a poor old king- is a misevaluation and understatement of this character. In Defense of Lady Macbeth An attempt to investigate who actually planned the murder of Duncan, can be referred to the findings of A. C. Bradley in the essay, “When Was the Murder of Duncan First Plotted”, in his Shakespearean Tragedy: A good many readers probably think that, when Macbeth first met the Witches, he was perfectly innocent; but a much larger number would say that he had already harboured a vaguely guilty ambition, though he had not faced the idea of murder. And I think there can be no doubt that this is the obvious and natural interpretation of the scene. (Bradley,
Though very shortly after, she committed suicide because she was eaten up with guilt. The stains of blood was a forever reminder of her crime. Macbeth has a different sight of bloodstains, he sees the dead for whom he is responsible. Unlike Lady Macbeth, he pushed the guilt away and tried to portray himself as the rightful ruler, while anyone who got in his way was murdered. But, guilt only lead to more murders and even more guilt for Macbeth.

“Alsworthy: A mugger and a murderer? In a shocking turn for the ongoing Alsworthy trial, the remains of Lea Alsworthy were discovered in rural Queensland late Friday night.
