Lady Macbeth is a complex character who uses her femininity and masculinity for different gains. She is an atypical female antagonist - she is willing to use her very passionate relationship with Macbeth to get him to murder the King (treasonable act in Jacobean times); she belittles Macbeth, wheedles him and berates him in order to achieve her aim. She believes wholeheartedly in Macbeth but knows he is not as resolute as she is. She asks to be ‘unsex’d’ - to not be a woman - so she can commit the worst sin possible. She is loyal and devoted to Macbeth and when he falters she tells him if he had asked her to kill a child they had she ‘would dash it’s brains out’ for him. Ultimately though she is driven mad by her actions and commits suicide showing that she is possibly less hardened than we initially would have perceived. Her attributes, summed up, are loyal, brave, ambitious. She is also narcissistic, a liar and far less tough than we first imagine her to be. Long one - phew!
