She requests that "direst brutality" debase her. She assembles everything that is detestable inside her body to perform the underhanded deed of killing Duncan. In the event that Lady Macbeth is truant from the story, the murder of Duncan would not occur. The fact that amid numerous parts of the story, Macbeth has vulnerability of whether it is noble to take the life of such an extraordinary ruler with a specific goal to nourish his strive after force. Regardless of Macbeth questioning regardless of whether he ought to acknowledge the murder of Duncan, he is constantly persuaded by his wife that killing Duncan is fitting.
When Macbeth displays uncertainty regarding the murder of Duncan, Lady Macbeth uses his fear of not adhering to the masculine gender role of being cold-hearted and ambitious and only “when [Macbeth] durst do it, then [he was] a man”. (1.7.56) Upon first glance, it would seem as though Lady Macbeth is strong and powerful. However, Shakespeare uses the downfall of both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to display that women in power are dangerous and corrupt. Due to Lady Macbeth’s coercion into the murder of Duncan, she allows and essentially encourages Macbeth to ravage all of Scotland. Lady Macbeth descends into insanity caused by lack of sleep and guilt.
When Macbeth was contemplating on why Lady Macbeth didn’t commit the murder she comes up with the excuse that Duncan looks like her father. After Lady Macbeth finds out that Duncan is murdered she is extremely joyous. However as Macbeth is mentally traumatised from the event she doesn’t get an opportunity to express her happiness. This is where Shakespeare begins to split the relationship between the two characters and the distance between them gradually increases. This split in the relationship is what starts the major turn of events in the character development as we see the psychological decline of both of the characters take place.
After killing Duncan, Macbeth’s mental state changes completely. The difference between the moment before the murder and the moment after is that Macbeth’s lack of determination. He feels personally responsible for the murder and wishes it never happened. Thus, he is afraid to look at the dead body and face what he has done (2.2.54-56). His regret of the murder shows the transformation of Macbeth’s attitude: he lets his remorse overpower him to the point of madness.
In my opinion the “three weird sisters” play a significant role and have complete control over the whole play. The premise of the play Macbeth is his lust for power and all the events that occur in the process to become and maintain being king. Without the weird sisters prophesies to Macbeth does he even embark on his murderous rampage? We learn quickly that Macbeth is a brave and noble warrior, so it doesn’t seem likely that after King Duncan named him Thane of Cawdor he would plot the murder of him after. Though shortly before his promotion the weird sisters do prophecies to him that he will become Thane and later King.
The three witches are trying to allow Macbeth plummet in troubles, however Lady Macbeth tries to save her husband, Macbeth. While the witches are having the nefarious actions to influence Macbeth’s behavior, Lady Macbeth is innocent and Lady Macbeth is helping Macbeth. The witches are the ones that influenced Macbeth to consider that Macbeth should design the harmful plans, so Macbeth could achieve his desires and be the next king. Meanwhile Lady Macbeth helped Macbeth to create the plans, so Macbeth would not fail, and their life would not be collapsed. If the witches did not instruct that Macbeth will be the king, then there would not be any intentions in Macbeth’s head.
Throughout her soliloquy that follows, Lady Macbeth finds that the only way to accomplish her goal is to manipulate her husband and convince him to go through with the murder. Further on in the same scene, Lady Macbeth reunites with Macbeth and they discuss the opportunity presented by having King Duncan come to their castle that evening. As Lady Macbeth says “...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 crown'd withal,” she cleverly convinces Macbeth to take action and seize the throne for himself (Shakespeare
When King Duncan is on his way to Inverness, Macbeth begins to panic and tries to back out of the plan. It’s not until his wife questions his manhood and belittles him that he agrees to do it. She always shamed Macbeth into feeling like he was less of a man if he didn’t do what she wanted and that’s what was the driving force of the play. Lady Macbeth tells him that he is “too nice” to do what it takes to become king. She ultimately gets what she wants when her husband goes through with killing Duncan, but even then she can’t be satisfied.
Lady Macbeth who had strengthened her will and hardened her heart by ‘’ murdering ministers’’ influences Macbeth to murder Duncan by challenging him to prove his worth as a man. Conflicted Macbeth sees no real reason in killing Duncan, apart from ‘’Vaulting Ambition’ ’Macbeth’s conscience is deeply troubled, he decides not to go ahead with the murder ‘’We will proceed no further in this business’’ but following his wife’s condescending interventions he resolves to murder, showing weakness in his character and how easily swayed Macbeth can be. Just like with the witch’s prophecies he is eager to find out what lies ahead. With this we learn that Macbeth is a feeble character who is easily persuaded emotionally by his wife, who knows of Macbeths insecurities and hence targets them. Courage and physical power are Macbeths major claims of self esteem; without them he is nothing.
She has only one thing in mind at this point: Do whatever it takes to make Macbeth king. She tells Macbeth, "O, never shall sun that morrow see!" (1.6.71-72). Lady Macbeth is releasing her rage by stating that Duncan will be killed and never shall he see the sun again which is ironic because she has never had a problem with Duncan before. Lady Macbeth is so determined to kill him that she is willing to stop at nothing to see his death.
