Writing a letter to his wife while returning from battle Macbeth addresses his wife as his dearest partner in greatness 1511 and his dearest love 1667 They are deeply in love and they also have a bond of partnership But this partnership they share leads her control and influence him That I may pour my spirits in thine ear and chastise with the valor of my tongue 1530-31 Lady Macbeth uses her husbands lust and her sexuality to convince him to do the unthinkable It is at this moment where we see the first evolution in their relationship That fearful night Macbeth falls under his wifes influence and lets her control him like a marionette doll This control and influence was signaled by a bell ringing in throughout the castle I go and it is done the bell invites me 2175 When Lady Macbeth convinces Macbeth to kill King Duncan she targets his weak spot telling him that if he does not go through with this we will not be a man and rings the bell signaling that its time to kill him Controlling him shows that their relationship has shifted and it is now one-dimensional She has great power and control over him forcing him to do something he would never think of doing making their relationship one-dimensional Becoming one-dimensional causes their whole relationship to go sour Macbeth too powerful for his own good and embarks on a killing spree killing Banquo and Macduffs entire family to secure his power With this power and rage comes great retaliation At his banquet the ghost of his once good friend and most recent victim Banquo comes upon him causing him to hallucinate Seeing her husband crazed with hallucinations Lady Macbeth now fears her husband and what he has become I pray you speak not He grows worse and worse
