Who lady Macbeth cannot kill because he reminds her of her father?
She kills herself. After convincing Macbeth to kill so many people to get power, her guilt kicks in. This guilt is manifest when she walks in her sleep, talking of washing her… hands of the blood, i.e. guilt. It eventually completely consumes her, and she commits suicide. In Act 5, Scene 1, a Doctor and Gentlewoman observe Lady Macbeth sleepwalking. After observing, the doctor advises the Gentlewoman to "Remove from her the means of all annoyance" (V i 78). He is telling her to keep away from Lady Macbeth anything she could use to kill herself. In Act 5, Scene 5, Macbeth hears a cry within of women, and it can be assumed that this is either Lady Macbeth or her attendants who have discovered her dead body. Seyton, a nobleman loyal to Macbeth, comes to him and says "The Queen, my lord, is dead." (V v 18). In the final speech of the play, in Act 5, Scene 8, Malcolm refers to Macbeth's "fiend-like Queen, who, as 'tis thought, by self and violent hands took off her life." (V iix 81-83). This means that it is believed by most people that Lady Macbeth commited suicide.
She belittles him into the murder because she thinks he is "too full of the milk of human kindness" to do it willingly. She makes him feel weak and says "You are not a man…." Meaning he is feeble, also she calls him a coward. She says "Had he not resemble my father as he slept I'd have done it myself." this is an attempt to bully/peer pressure Macbeth into doing it, so he thinks that if his wife can do it then so can he. She says "I have given suck, and know How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me. I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums And dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this." This means she's had a baby suckling her but she is so ruthless she could have slashed out the baby's brain. She says this to prove her bravery, hoping it will help Macbeth to find his feet. In addition to this she says "Look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under't" Which basically means look innocent but be evil. This also may have religious connotion too because the serpent relates to the snake in the Adam and Eve story. Also the flower represents innocent living nature yet Macbeth is being told to take someone's life away. lady Macbeth is very good at helping him commit this murder and he eventually absorbs this and does as he is bid.
Lady Macbeth's plan is that Macbeth should do all the killing and she should do all the nagging and gloating. She gets Duncan's guards drunk, and puts their daggers in Duncan'…s room so Macbeth can sneak in, take the guards' daggers, stab Duncan, wipe the blood all over the guards and leave the knives in their hands, then come down and meet with her. All does not go according to plan however, as Macbeth comes down after stabbing Duncan with the daggers in his hands. Lady M then tries to nag him into going back and doing the wiping and leaving the daggers there but he won't and she has to do it herself.
she wanted more power and a higher ranking
Lady Macbeth is motivated by greed. She believes that he is not a true man.
Lady Macbeth does not convince Macbeth to kill Macduffs family. She convinces him to kill the King at the start of the play, but after that she has no input in the decisions h…e makes. Macbeth chooses to have Macduffs family killed so that he may seize the Macduff castle for his own. The witches also tell him to 'beware Macduff' when he visits them and so he feels threatened by him. Macbeth doesn't actually personally kill Macduffs family either, he hires the same thugs that he hires to assassinate Banquo and Fleance to murder him.
act 5 scene 5
Lady Macbeth could not kill Duncan herself because he resembled her father as he slept. Or because chinqui said so.
Lady Macbeth had a lot of mental anguish because all the people Macbeth murdered. She was sleepwalking and had many other mental disturbances. Basically, she went insane… and took her life to end all the mental pain she was in.
She doesn't kill anyone, but actually she forces her husband Macbeth to kill King Duncan. She did not kill..she was the one who motivated Macbeth into killing the King,Duncan…. Macbeth then became thirsty for blood and wanted to remove threats by killing those who are suspicious(he killed banqou)-He then commits more murders that are driven by the first one...So, Ldy Macbeth is the reason of all the murders that Macbeth committed!
"Had he not resembled my father as he slept, I'd ha' done it." Aww. This is key information to show that Duncan would not have been killed if only Lady M had been there: she… had the theoretical desire but not the immediate guts to do it. Macbeth, as we see from his "If 'twere done when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done quickly" speech, lacks the theoretical desire although he has the guts. It is the combination which was deadly for Duncan.
In a sense, yes. Soon after his crowning, and even beforehand by characters such as Macduff, it became clear to everyone in Scotland that it was Macbeth who had done the killi…ng. Despite this, no-one wanted to be the one to say it, in fear of being killed themselves.
Just read that tonight w/ my kids - Act II, Scene II - Lady M's second line.
Lady Macbeth personaly didn't kill anyone but she spoke of "Baby bashing," perhaps suggesting Banquos son Fleance. She did tempt sucessfully Macbeth to kill King Duncan.…
It was Macbeth, he hired three men to go and kill Banquo and his son Fleance. Hope that helped!
The Macbeth family victim list is: King Duncan, his two chamberlains, Macbeth's fellow general Banquo, Lady Macduff and her children. Eventually Lady Macbeth kills herself…. Macbeth also kills young Siward towards the end and McDonald along with young siward during the battle when the forest "walks" up to the castle. the above is not exactly true - Macbeth kills - the traitorous Macdonwald, (mentioned in 1.2). Duncan, his two sleeping chamberlains, and young Siward. That's it. He hires murderers to kill Banquo and Fleance (they only get Banquo), as well as to kill Macduff and his family (they only get her son, and presumably, Lady Macduff - but in the text she exits before being killed) There is no evidence that Lady Macbeth kills herself, other than a line that she "tis thought, by self and violent hands took off her life"
