Appunto di ariannabassetti
Lady Macbeth is probably the most complex character of the whole play: sharp and false, she is the mind behind her husband's actions, she is the real planner of the king's murder and, for this reason, she's the one that feels more the responsibility of the awful deed.

The most interesting thing about Lady Macbeth is that she is a changing character, because she modifies the way she acts several times, during the play. At the beginning she shows a pitiless personality, cruelty and brutality, "I would... plucked my nipple from his boneless and dashed the brains out" (1.7.55-6). She convinces her husband to give up all his principles, his loyalty to the king and his faith to God, to pursue the ambition of power and greatness.
