Macbeth

By William Shakespeare

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth is the person too blame for Macbeth's downfall because she is the who encouraged him to kill king Duncan. And when he wanted to back out she called him a coward. "Wouldst thou have that Which thou esteem'st the ornament of life,And live a coward in thine own esteem"(Shakespeare 43). But in act two scene two lady Macbeth looked at king Duncan sleeping she couldn't kill him because he looked like her father. "Had he not resembled My father as he slept. I had done't"(Shakespeare). Also she helped Macbeth in scene two by drugging the guards. "Do mock their charge with snores. I have drugged their possets"( Shakespeare)
