Transcript of How Macbeth And Lady Macbeth's Relationship Changes Though Out The Play

And How Their Relationship Changed Through out The Play Macbeth And Lady Macbeth At the start of the play Macbeth is ever increasingly in love with Lady Macbeth as is shown by him sending a letter to her telling her of the prophecies made by the three witches, showing that he trusts her to the point of telling her almost anything. This also sows that he considers her opinion highly as it is as if he is seeking her approval on whether to try to fulfill the prophecy.

However when Lady Macbeth reads the letter it is shown that it she is waiting for the opportunity to arise where she could become powerful and is attracted by the occult to achieve this. At the start of the play we think that Lady Macbeth did feel love towards Macbeth, however not to the extent of which Macbeth loved Lady Macbeth and had started to become corrupted by the thoughts of power. This is portrayed in the book when she says in act one scene five:” Thou idts have, great Glamis, that which cries, Thus thou must do, if thou have it.” The Relationship between Lady Macbeth
Macbeth at the start of the play Lady Macbeth's tries to persuade Macbeth to Murder King Duncan (as he is staying the night) but Macbeth continues to worry about the consequences of what he would be committing, which is treason.

Lady Macbeth told Macbeth that this was important to her and she wants it more than anything
"I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me:
I would, while it was smiling in my face,
Have pluck'd my nipple from his boneless gums,
And dash'd the brains out, had I so sworn
As you have done to this."

This tells us that Lady Macbeth would kill their child (who was believed to die soon after it was born) if it meant they would become king and queen. The Relationship between Lady Macbeth
Macbeth just before the murder Immediately after both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth return to their chambers they are wary of what they had done and become agitated and aware of every sound of the night thus fearing the consequences from both god and the law. Macbeth is tormented by his own guilt "Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
Making the green one red" this implies he does not believe he will ever be guilt free again.

Lady Macbeth is shown to be stronger person at that time and is the one to tell Macbeth that he should be stronger and not think about what they have just done.This is shown in Act 2 of the book when Lady Macbeth says "These deeds must not be thought, after these ways;so, it will make us mad". The Relationship between Lady Macbeth
Macbeth just after the murder Lady Macbeth's mental state begins to deteriorate at this points. She would wake up in the night sleep walking and speaking aloud whilst doing so. "Out, damned spot! out, I say!One: two: why,
then, 'tis time to do't.Hell is murky!Fie, my
lord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need we
fear who knows it, when none can call our power
to account?Yet who would have thought the old
man to have had so much blood in him?" this implies that as she was being watched at this moment that this is how the truth was discovered, tumbled upon by Lady Macbeth's own maid.
Although Macbeth is consumed with guilt, he is now obsessed with the thought of power and has no problem with killing women and children to achieve his own ends. The Relationship between Lady Macbeth
