LADY MACBETH. Was the hope drunk Wherein you dress'd yourself? hath it slept since? And wakes it now, to look so green and pale At what it did so freely? From this time Such I account thy love. Art thou afeard To be the same in thine own act and valour As thou art in desire? Wouldst thou have that Which thou esteem'st the ornament of life, And live a coward in thine own esteem, Letting "I dare not" wait upon "I would," Like the poor cat i' the adage? William Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act I, scene vii What part does Lady Macbeth play in Macbeth's decision to kill the king?

    Lady Macbeth is a character in Shakespeare's Macbeth. She is the wife to the play's protagonist, Macbeth, a Scottish nobleman. After goading him into committing regicide, she becomes Queen of Scotland, but later suffers pangs of guilt for her part in the crime. She dies off-stage in the last act, an apparent suicide.

    Lady Macbeth is the one who pushes the indecisive Macbeth to commit the murder of Duncan. Earlier in Act 1, we see Macbeth waver in his thoughts about killing the king from "If chance will have me king...Without my stir," to his soliloquy in Act 2, sc. 1, where he says, when he hears his wife's bell, that this bell summons Duncan either to heaven or to hell. When he wavers in his desire to murder Duncan, Lady Macbeth attacks his manhood, telling him that if he carries out this deed, then and only then, will he be a man in her eyes. When she invokes the spirits of darkness to "unsex" her, she is the epitome of evil. Later, we see her decline into madness when by Act 5, sc. 1, she is sleepwalking, talking to imaginary people, and continually washing her hands while, always, she demands there be light around her. Her role is to show the audience how, even someone who seems to have no conscience and appears to be very strong-willed, can be brought down by evil.
