After reading this climactic portion of Shakespeares enticing play Macbeth I am filled with a plethora of different remarks and thoughts about several of the characters inner feelings and ambitions It is not clear to the reader what the characters are actually expressing or what exactly is driving them but their feelings can be inferred from the surrounding text and the readers basic understanding of all human nature One of the most interesting aspects about this section of the text was the intriguing death of Lady Macbeth Lady Macbeths degeneration is quite brisk considering the incredible amount of power that she once held at the beginning of the play As Macbeths power has grown Lady Macbeths has declined at a proportional rate for their powers are ironically derived solely from the other For instance Lady Macbeth started as a remorseless yet greatly influential character capable of provoking Macbeth to do her own dirty-work such as the murder of Duncan She continues as a remorseless influential voice capable sweet-talking Duncan and harassing Macbeth to be more masculine However soon her dominance over Macbeth and others begins to fade as shown by Malcoms suspicion of her killing Duncan at the end of Act II Furthermore in the third act Macbeth leaves her out of his plans to kill Banquo refusing to tell her what he intends to do Now in Act V she has disintegrated into a helpless and superfluous sleepwalker fearing her own guilt and losing her power over everything even herself as shown by her uncontrollable sleepwalking The immense power which she once possessed has now all transferred to Macbeth who at the beginning of Act V fears nothing even the prodigious army rising up in revolt against him When she dies offstage Macbeth simply scoffs that she should have died hereafter Vv19 a stark contrast to Macduff who has a deep-felt and emotional reaction to his wifes death Once again as I have already
