Blood is the also the main theme is this play. After the murder of King Duncan there seems to be blood everywhere: on the two daggers, smeared over the faces of sleeping grooms, on Macbeth’s hands and Lady Macbeth wonders how the “old man had so much blood in him”.   After Banquo’s murder, one of the hired killers appears at the banquet with blood on his face. Lady Macbeth goes mad, desperately trying to wash imaginary blood from her hands.





Firstly, I encounter that Lady Macbeth is an awesome woman, a self-made monster of evil and ambition. I will now be talking about the character of Lady Macbeth and how she spurs her husband into fulfilling the witches’ prophecies. Women have control over men and they can easily influence them. Lady Macbeth is shown early in the play as a single purposed woman. She can manipulate Macbeth easily. This is shown in the line \"That I may pour my spirits in thine ear\". (I,V, 26)



The play starts when Macbeth sees the witches and gets told that he will become King. They recount to Macbeth three prophecies. That Macbeth will be Thane of Cawdor, Thane of Glamis and King. These prophecies introduce Macbeth to ideas of greatness. As a result, I think the witches foretell the future, they can add temptation, and influence Macbeth, but they do not control his destiny. He immediately writes a letter to his wife and explains what happens, and they decide to kill the King. Lady Macbeth knows that her husband is too nice to go through with the murder so she eventually tries to persuade him that he needs to be strong and manly. In this play Lady Macbeth uses different powers of persuasion to encourage her husband to kill King Duncan. Lady Macbeth is aware that murder is the only way to make the witches’ predictions to come true, but she also believes that Macbeth might be “too full o’ th’ milk of human kindness”. Here she uses several techniques to stiffen his resolve.
