Paragraph 1
example
Point
Primarily, Shakespeare presents Lady Macbeth as a disturbed character through her hunger for power and desire for the death of King Duncan.
Example
This is shown as she begins to obsess over persuading Macbeth to kill Duncan: "Hie thee hither,/ That I may pour my spirits in thine ear". Continuing to comment on the need to lose her female morals in order to carry out the act, as she begs the spirits to, "unsex me here,"
Analyse and Comment
Shakespeare's use of 'pour my spirits' emphasizes the power balance in the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, as the verb 'pour' implies Macbeth's lack of choice but to listen to his wife and her desires. Furthermore, with the play set in the 11th Century, a time in which we expect females to be complacent, Lady Macbeth's desire to have the power and mentality of a male, with the use of 'unsex', provides an indication of the mental state of the woman Shakespeare has created; she lacks morals and wishes to lose them further in order for her husband to commit murder. As these quotes come from Lay Macbeth's soliloquy, we know that she is talking to herself in order to allow the audience access to her thoughts.
Whilst this allows the audience access to her mind, it is a personal account of her thoughts and we are yet to find out how Macbeth will respond to his wife's ideas.
