The play "Macbeth" is a description of the tragedy of a state during the civil wars through the fall of the individual, that had put his honour, friends, even life on the line to risk for power and position in society. The main character of the tragedy Macbeth is seized with the thirst for power that he wins at any cost, more exactly by murder and tyranny. Being already ambitious, Macbeth believes in the predictions of his greatness and exceptionalism. However, not only the witches guide him on a criminal path. His wife lady Macbeth forces him to go on the side of evil and violence.
Shakespeare created a bright female character, combining the thirst for mischief and the inability to go through the crime.
Among other women, Lady Macbeth stands out in beauty, as Macbeth rises above all with his manly dignity. Incredibly attractive and feminine, Lady Macbeth attracts the attention of many men. She knows about it and wants to use this advantage to the full. Lady Macbeth wants her beauty to be crowned. She dreams to be the wife of the first man in the state. Beautiful but cruel inside, she is a woman with a stone heart that even loves differently. Her affection is so ambitious that she loves Macbeth for his superiority over all other people. This kind of love is in its own way sincere and strong, but, no doubt, it is a perversion of true love.
Controversial beginnings fight in her heart. Executing of the bloody plan she faces the tragic conflict of the humanity, which her mighty nature is endowed with. On encouraging the husband to the crime, Lady Macbeth is broken. Her ambition is mania that destroyed all other feelings. She has no moral values at all. Inciting Macbeth to murder, she herself participates in them, being confident that if they do not leave the visible traces of the crime, no one will suspect them.
However, if Lady Macbeth’s heart or mind is unable to realise that she has committed a sin against humanity, nature is outraged. She is punished with madness for breaking its laws.
Her consciousness is not awake any longer. She is wandering like a sleepwalker trying to wipe the invisible blood stains from the hands. She is convinced that it is possible to destroy all traces of the crime. As it turned out, they are indestructible and remain inside a man. Human nature is not able to bear it. That's why Lady Macbeth goes mad and dies. Shakespeare managed to convey the image of a heartless woman, and readers do not sympathise with her.
