The Concept of Femininity in Shakespeare's Macbeth

"That death and nature do contend about them, Whether they live, or die." (Act 2: 2) Lady Macbeth has drugged the guards and cannot tell if they are dead of alive, nor does she care.The owl that shrieked marked the death of Duncan, the sound like bells before an execution. The image conveys that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are equally as guilty with the murder. Lady Macbeth did not commit the murder, but she convinced Macbeth to do it therefore she shares just as much of the blame as Macbeth.

Great inspiration from Lady Macbeth when writing characters that may be a little more crafty than they seem.
