Macbeth is a piece of Shakespeare that will last forever. It is a tale of manipulation, murder, deceit, and a man falling into all these traps. A man whose quest for the throne turns him into a murder, his conscious gets consumed by bloodshed and greed. Shakespeare uses blood in a symbolic way throughout the story. Being that the story weighs heavily on blood and guilt, blood represents life at the beginning of the play and then turns into guilt throughout the story.
Bradley points out that here “Lady Macbeth asserts first that Macbeth proposed the murder to her, second that he did so at a time when there was no opportunity to attack Duncan, no ' adherence ' of ' time ' and ' place ', and third that he declared he would make an opportunity, and swore to carry out the murder.” (pg. 477). Once Lady Macbeth argues with this atop many other points of debate Macbeth then says “I am settled, and bend up Each corporal agent to this terrible feat. Away, and mock the time with fairest show: False face must hide what the false heart doth know” (Pg. 171; 1.7.80) sending his wife to distract the others both putting on a face that is only false to them, knowing in their hearts the act that they are about to
Everyone is influenced by the people around them to help guide them through the decisions they make throughout their lives. Lady Macbeth is a wicked character in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, who has a dangerous influence towards Macbeth. Lady Macbeth is accountable for manipulating Macbeth to commit the crimes and she helps release the inner demon in Macbeth by persuading him to become a sinful and dreadful man. The mood of hatred and dismay towards the characters is recognized by the references to blood. This image of blood commences as a demonstration of honor evolves into evil then guilt.
Before Macbeth is completely dedicated to executing Duncan his confidence falters that is until Lady Macbeth voices her feelings "... I fear thy nature - it is too full o' the milk of human kindness to catch the nearest way". Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth in to believing that unless he murders Duncan he will never be King. As a result, Macbeth does murder Duncan and many more after. It is apparent that Macbeth's flaw is his ambitiousness.
William Shakespeare wrote Macbeth. It is considered one of its most powerful and darkest tragedies; the play dramatizes the psychological and political corrosive effects produced when evil is chosen as a way to satisfy the ambition for power. Macbeth tells a story of crime and punishment mixed with witchcraft. Covered in the deceitful prophecies of the Weird Sisters, Macbeth decides to assassinate his king and take the crown. Aware of the horror to which he surrenders, he forges his terrible destiny and believing himself invincible and eternal.
A relationship is where two people care about each other and put their significant other before themselves. A good relationship consists of a lot of hard work, the couple should be loyal, forgive each other, and communicate. Each relationships change over time, sometimes get better and sometimes become worse. A relationship takes a lot of effort and time. One of the most dramatic marriages ever read about was Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s.
The bloody hand on the Castle is also meant to be a stain on the reputation of the Macbeth and Lady Macbeth; a stain symbolizes their guilty consciences (especially Lady Macbeth’s). But this stain is not only viewed by others, but by the owners themselves. For Lady Macbeth, her guilt slowly begins to prevent her from continuing in the seat of power, as seen by her death a few scenes after the visions of the blood-soaked hands. Blood is also represent the consequences of overreaching ambition as well as evil plans. Both play a role in the degrading of the morality and reputations of the Macbeths.
Blood itself - its color, its smell, and its importance is critical to life and surprising to encounter. The constant appearance of blood in Macbeth constantly remind the audience about how serious the outcomes of the characters actions are. But almost incomparable to the importance of physical blood, is the imagined blood discovered throughout the play. Imaginary blood symbolizes guilt for Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. It's not until after the murder of Duncan that their guilt begins to clear up.
The concept of power is discussed within the play by using strong symbolism to show authority through the characters of Macduff, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. After reading a letter from her spouse, Lady Macbeth has a thought about murdering King Duncan letting Macbeth become king. She then realises that she has to “unsex” herself and “take my milk for gall” so she is able to help her Husband, Macbeth to kill Duncan. Lady Macbeth believed that her “keen knife see not the wound it makes” will happen and she will be powerful if she shows more manhood.
At the beginning of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, he initially presents the relationship between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth as mainly dominated by Lady Macbeth. She was the first one to suggest murdering King Duncan to fulfill the witches prophecy for Macbeth. She is heavily driven by ambition and it willing to go to extreme extents, she calls the spirits to ‘unsex her’ and take away her femininity so she is able to commit the crime without feeling guilt and remorse. Macbeth is unsure about going through with the plan and tells Lady Macbeth ‘they will proceed no further in this business’ this shows that Macbeth was heavily persuaded and almost forced into killing King Duncan.
