    LADY MACBETH. The raven himself is hoarse That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan Under my battlements. Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty. Make thick my blood. Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between The effect and it! Come to my woman's breasts, And take my milk for gall, you murd'ring ministers, Wherever in your sightless substances You wait on nature's mischief. Come, thick night, And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell, That my keen knife see not the wound it makes, Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark To cry "Hold, hold!" William Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act I, scene v What can you infer about Lady Macbeth's character from this speech?

    C. because she calls on the spirits who give humans murderous thoughts(spirits, that tend on mortal thoughts). then asks them to take her woman traits away such as compassion, kindness, etc(unsex me here). and asks to strip away her feeling of remorse so she can carry out the deed to kill king duncan in her home with her sharp dagger that she is eager to plunge into him

    SERGEANT. Doubtful it stood; As two spent swimmers, that do cling together And choke their art. The merciless Macdonwald Worthy to be a rebel, for to that The multiplying villanies of nature Do swarm upon him from the western isles Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied; And fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling, Show'd like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak: For brave Macbeth well he deserves that name Disdaining fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valour's minion carved out his passage Till he faced the slave; Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him, Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps, And fix'd his head upon our battlements. DUNCAN. O valiant cousin! worthy gentleman! William Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act I, scene ii
