(Macbeth I, v, 26) Lady Macbeth made Macbeth feel bad about himself, by lowering his manhood and bravery. Lady Macbeth deceives everyone so well that people were scared to tell her about Duncan’s death, not thinking she can handle it. “Look like an innocent flower /but be the serpent under it” (Macbeth I, IV, 65-66) this means to look innocent and pure but to be evil on the inside. At first Lady Macbeth is able to keep her cool and not think anything of the deed. Macbeth on the other hand cannot sleep and starts to see things.
Fie, my lord, Fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who Knows it, when none can call our power accompt? Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?" --Act 5, Scene 1, Lines 34-39: Lady Macbeth to herself while sleepwalking Guilt in Macbeth While observing from outside the castle, a doctor and a woman notice some strange habits of a Lady Macbeth, who seems to be in a hypnotic state.
After reading Macbeths letter, Lady Macbeth is jubilant to the idea of murdering King Duncan. She begins to come up with a plan in killing Duncan to gain the royal crown. She then fills up with pure evil; she evilly scams Macbeth into the sadistic murder. Lady Macbeth says “Look like th’ innocent flower, but be the serpent under’t” In this quotation Lady Macbeth is demanding that Macbeth should act innocent and not guilty, but beneath the kindness and love, be a devious evil man who won’t let anything between the crown and himself. Shakespeare quotes sentences such as ‘Look like th’ innocent flower’, which suggests that lady Macbeth is comparing Macbeth’s behaviour towards a flower.
Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, / And fill me from the crown to the toe topful / Of direst cruelty!” (I.V.38-34).These lines tell how Lady Macbeth pressure Macbeth to kill King Duncan. If I were to add one ingredient to Lady Macbeth, it would be love. The reason why is that if she really loved Macbeth she wouldn’t pressure Macbeth to kill King Duncan because she would of worried what would of happen to him if he got a caught. If I were to remove a ingredient of Lady Macbeth it would be devotion. The reason why is that Lady Macbeth would not be devoted to make Macbeth king and result of having him to kill people to get

One of the main messages he is trying to deliver to us is to always weigh what you achieve to what the consequences will be. This especially holds true for Macbeth, as when first contemplating if he should kill Duncan, not once did he think of how he could be punished. Also, when Macbeth first hears the witch’s prophecy of him being a king, he jumps directly to the idea of murder. This kind of thinking is exhibited in Macbeth’s monologue in scene 5 act 5, where he discus’s the uselessness of living, and this attitude towards life made him go mad. This also points to how unintelligent Macbeth really was.
To begin, Macbeth is viewed as a brave and fearless man with very good military standing he is also viewed as a good leader. Macbeth is a good man at this point in the play but due to some prophecies that are made by, some crazy witches; he starts to betray his closest friends. Macbeth begins to plot against King Duncan, the man who just named him Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth realizes the costliness of killing the king and how his actions may damn him forever. Macbeth tells his wife, Lady Macbeth, That he cannot go through with it and she begins to question him, “When you durst do it, then you were a man; And, to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man” (Shakespeare I.VII.
Lady Macbeth has just been thinking that her husband is too weak willed to seize what she sees as rightfully his, the throne of Scotland. When she hears that King Duncan will be staying in her home, she says: 'Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe top--full of direst cruelty' (1.5). In other words, she longs to act like a 'man' and kill Duncan herself. Lady Macbeth goes as far as to invite demons, or spirits, to inhabit her, enabling her to commit this great evil
At the end of the play he was no longer honourable and, instead, a tyrant. He starts off as being very human; he is actually a war-hero. However the seed of change is planted right away when he meets the witches and they tell him their prophecy of him becoming king. This makes Macbeth ambitious, and it leads to his demise. Once he kills Duncan the change rapidly begins to accelerate.
Lady Macbeth uses this tactic on Macbeth several times throughout the play. “When you durst do it, then you were a man; and to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man.” (Macbeth, Act 1, Scene vii, 56-58). Lady Macbeth Questions Macbeth’s manhood in this quote and is able to degrade his confidence and convince him to murder King Duncan through manipulation. She basically tells Macbeth, if you are a man then you will kill Duncan, if not you are an immature boy. “Wouldst thou have that which thou esteem'st the ornament of life, and live a coward in thine own esteem, letting “I dare not” wait upon “I would, ” like the poor cat i' th' adage?” (Shakespeare, Act I, scene vii, 45-49).
