This implies that her guilt of killing Duncan is driving her insane this technique is used by Shakespeare to portray Lady Macbeth’s broken state of mind which makes her restless. In Act 2 Scene 2, the witches say "Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep,” this is exactly what has happened to Lady Macbeth as she is unable to sleep.
In the case of this play, the reader could argue that Eddie's tragic flaw is either denial or, to begin with, the incestuous feelings for his niece, Catherine. Most of the time, the damage caused by a tragic hero's downfall usually hurts not just himself but often his community and family around him are strongly affected as well. Once again, Eddie's betrayal does both of these things. Firstly, his community was affected because Marco shouted to all the neighbours in the surrounding scene that Eddie killed his children, or so he claimed. Marco made these claims because he was so furious at Eddie’s betrayal and hence wanted to make Eddie seem as a villainous character.

Steinbeck elicits contradictory feelings in the reader: sympathy for the recently murdered woman as well as sympathy for his murderer.
Macbeth shall sleep no more” (II.2.55-57). He is already panicking regarding what he has done and hearing voices that foreshadow his sleeplessness. Then, Lady Macbeth scolds him for leaving the murder weapon behind and he admits that, “I’ll go no more./ I am afraid to think what I have done./ Look on ‘t again I dare not” (II.2.65-67).

Still, we have many reasons to believe that the murderer is Casper Grattan. Joel Hetman, Jr. mentions in his statement that his father loved his wife and was very jealous for her.

He claims that he saw' the figure of a man going out of their house at night when his wife was supposed to be there alone, and he got very angry. As he continues with his story, he confesses that that night he was the one to strangle the wife, “I strangled her till she died” he says.
