An Analysis of the Character Lady Macbeth During Shakespearean times women were regarded as delicate little creatures who were there to give birth and look pretty They were not thought to be smart or equal to men Though in Shakespeares play Macbeth Lady Macbeth serves as the main influence in Macbeths life He trusts her with everything he has She is after all his dearest partner of greatness I v 13 The relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth is different from others of Shakespearean time Though he is the man he often consults his wife before he does anything In the beginning of the play when the witches tell Macbeth of his promising future Lady Macbeth is the first person he writes to Upon hearing the witchs prophecy Lady Macbeth wishes it to be true in hopes that she will become queen Immediately the audience realizes the evils of Lady Macbeth She asks the spirits to unsex her here and fill her from the toe top-full of Direst Cruelty I v 41-43 Lady Macbeth wants to become bold enough to persuade her husband to kill Duncan Once Lady Macbeth puts the idea of murdering the King in Macbeths head she begins to plan the murder Lady Macbeth is very direct and intelligent She plans what looks like a perfect murder Even though she appears to be rather bold it is obvious to the audience that she is not very brave She wants to be crowned just as much as Macbeth if not more but she doesnt have the guts to stab the King Once the King arrives at Macbeths castle Lady Macbeth does what she tells her husband to do She is a terrific actress and Looks like thinnocent flower but be the serpent under t I v 65-66 This also shows Lady Macbeths intelligence When Macbeth thinks further about killing the King he decides that he has too many reasons not to do it
