The Wicked Wife Macbeth's downfall

The Real Reason for Macbeth's Downfall

In spite of Lady Macbeth being Macbeth's wife she ends up being his downfall. Lady Macbeth is the reason for Macbeth's downfall because as soon as she get the letter about the prophecy the witches told him she begins to ask for spirits to unsex her and make her not a woman, "Come you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, and fill me head to toe, top full of direst cruelty!"(act 1 scene 5 line 46-49). This shows that she asked to removed of all of her kindness so that she will have the ability to kill and help her husband kill Duncan. Also after Macbeth decides that he doesn't want to kill Duncan because he a kind and just king she pushes him to do it against his will by calling him a wienie, and telling him to pretty much go and turn his man card,"Wherein you dressed yourself? Hath it slept since? And wakes now to look so green and pale at what it did so freely?"(act 1 scene 7 lines 41-44). What this shows is how Lady Macbeth tells her husband that he is pathetic and he's not a man, so after this happens he rethinks it and decides to kill Duncan but only because Lady Macbeth called him names and he was protecting his manhood. Lastly after Macbeth killed Duncan and comes back bloody and still with the daggers in hand Lady Macbeth again calls him out for not spearing blood on the guards and calling him a ninny for not doing it making him feel worse about killing Duncan witch he would not have done in the first place if Lady Macbeth would've have convinced him to do it,"Infirm of purpose! give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead are but as pictures.'Tis the eye of the childhood That fears a painted devil."(act 2 scene 2 lines 72-75). What this show is that Lady Macbeth constantly calls her husband out like when she calls his fear of the sleeping guards the same as a child's fear of a painting of the devil, this constant taunting and name calling drives Macbeth to kill Duncan because if Lady Macbeth didn't exist then Macbeth would've have killed Duncan in the first place. Lady Macbeth convinced her husband to follow the witches prophecy, Macbeth was going to disregard the prophecy until Lady Macbeth convinced him to follow it and make the prophecy happen by taking Duncan's life. In conclusion Lady Macbeth was the downfall to Macbeth because first when she heard about the prophecy in the letter from Macbeth she asked to removed of her kindness so she and her husband could be murders, also whenever Macbeth decides not murder she calls him not a man, so just to defend his manhood he kills Duncan, and after Macbeth kills Duncan he comes back bloody, daggers in hand and she doesn't even care about how he is all she wants to know is were he was caught and then she calls him a sissy again just because he doesn't want to look at the innocent man he just killed only because his wife made him. For those reasons and many more Lady Macbeth was the downfall of Macbeth.
Sara Bareilles - Love Song

Love song a concection

It says in the chorus "I'm not going to write you a love song" this is similar to how Macbeth didn't want to kill Duncan then he does anyway after his wife convices him to by calling him a ninny. Then it also says," convince me to please you made me think that I needed this too" This lyric shows how like when Macbeth decided not to kill Duncan and Lady Macbeth conviced him to kill Dunca she made him think that he needed it too.The song als says," you and your twisted words" This is just like how Lady Macbeth twisted her words and called Macbeth names to convince him to kill Duncan. Lastly the song says" Cause you tell me its make or breaking this" This further show how this song is like Macbeth's downfall because it talks about how it make or breaking just like how Lady Macbeth talks to her husband like when he decides not to kill Duncan and she ask do you want to be king and Macbeth then asked what if we're caught and basically Lady Macbeth said either you kill him or we will be killed for trying its make or break in this.
