After reading the play Macbeth, I truly believe that Lady Macbeth is the most culpable. Her actions clearly show that she had a huge impact on controlling Macbeth. This control over MacBeth caused him to make foolish mistakes. Her power over him was overbearing. Lady MacBeth was an evil, power hungry and deceptive woman who ruined her life as well as many others lives. .
During the play lady MacBeth doesn't really know what she wants. In the beginning she appears to want power. So that she will have a higher social status. Lady MacBeth believed that MacBeth is not a very strong and powerful man. "But screw your courage to the sticking-place / and we"ll not fail" (1.7 line 60-62). .
When MacBeth becomes the king Lady MacBeth is happy and content at first. However, she comes to realize that convincing MacBeth to kill Duncan was a mistake. As she is in a trans-like state of mind, the doctors says "Not so sick, my Lord, as she is troubles with think-coming fancies / that keep her from her rest." (5.3 line 38-40). This indicates that she is remorseful for her mistakes. However, she is in too deep to undo the evil deeds.
As the play continues lady MacBeth is closer to death. This deeply disturbs MacBeth. "Cure her of that / Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, / Pluck the memory a rooted sorrow." (5.3 lines 40-42). This proves that MacBeth actually has feeling for Lady MacBeth. .
After Lady MacBeth's death, it becomes evermore evident that she clearly culpable. She masterminded MacBeth, lied to Duncan, and she convinced most of the characters that herself and MacBeth had nothing to do with the killing of Duncan. Lady MacBeth had a big part in the killing of Duncan. Because she killed the guards and planted knives on their bodies. All this shows that she made lives miserable.
It was sad to see Lady MacBeth's live to be so horrid. She lived by lies, deceiving people and mocking people. "Who dares receive it other / as we shall make our grief's and clamour roar / upon his death?" (1.
