Lady MacBeth Lady MacBeth is one of Shakespeares greatest and most intriguing female characters She is evil seductive and witch-like all at the same time However during the play we see her in two different ways At the time when we first meet her she is a brutally violent power wanting witch and later on she turns to a shameful suicidal grieving woman At the beginning of the MacBeth Lady MacBeth is very savage and vicious She thinks nothing of killing King Duncan She has no sense of what is wrong and right and believes that it is perfectly moral to do the deed of murder She states that to not go through with the deed would be horrible to yourself and that you would be a coward in your own eyes Wouldst thou have that which thou esteemst the ornament of life and live a coward in thine own esteem She states that if she was MacBeth and did not jump at this perfect opportunity that if a child being fed at her breast where as Duncan is king she would tear it from her and dashd the brains out to have the opportunity MacBeth does This shows how mad and sadistic she was She had absolutely no self-conscience and thought nothing about the wrong they were soon to commit Later on after the murders she unlike MacBeth still shows no signs of a conscience She is very cool and collected while MacBeth hallucinates and goes temporarily mad Lady MacBeth on the other hand takes everything calmly She takes the daggers back to the Kings room smears blood on the drunken guards and attempts to destroy all evidence of MacBeth ever being there She knows what needs to be done and does it without any hesitation or fear However it is later on in the story
