This touches on the theme of masculinity.
clearly willing to do whatever is necessary to
seize the throne.
This means that Lady Macbeth would do
anything to get to her goal regardless of how
many people she has to murder.
This shows that she does not even stop and think about the
servants feelings or what will become of them. She only cares
about herself and no one else and will stop at nothing to achieve

plan though her husband asked her to stop.

point of time, she is still bent on following her
ideas and just barked orders to her husband
though he is the older one.

She does however change throughout
the play showing signs of both
humanity and ruthlessness. Her
ambitious nature does however end up
being her downfall.
Lady Macbeth frequently taunts her
husband calling him a coward and
questions his manly hood
Lady Macbeth showing signs of being
inhumane and power hungry even says
that she is okay with killing children in
order ot become queen
"I would, while it was smiling in my
face, Have pluck'd my nipples from his
boneless gums And dash'd the brains
Humanity: if Duncan did not resemble
her father then she would have killed
him herself: "Had he not resemble my
father as he slept, I had donet"
Lady Macbeth orders Macbeth to stop
thinking about the death of Duncan:
"These deeds must not be thought,
Afrter these ways, so, it will make us
ma", as it will drive him mad which is
IRONIC as in the end she is ultimately
driven mad with guilt to a point where
it is unbearable and she takes her own
