conclude my analysis. Definitions: As promised I will quickly give a definition of the words which you can see right here. The reason for that is that I want you to be familiar with all the different sorts of love a person can give you or feel and that a love relationship can really be multi-faceted. However, a decent love relationship really should consist of the partners trusting and caring for each other. Tough love and self-love on the other hand can be part of a true and equal relationship but only to a healthy extend. Tough love shouldn't grow into controlling your partners live while self-love should not be greater than you love to your partner. Analysis: (before the regicide): With that being said I would like to introduce you to the scenes I chose to give you an inside on the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Keep in mind that the first interaction between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth can only to some extend reveal the relationship before Lady Macbeth heard about the prophecy. First Interaction: The first scene is also the first time Lady Macbeth enters the play, which is the fifth scene of act one on page 23. You can possibly follow me the best through following the quotes I will bring up. The scene starts with Macbeth letter in which he tells Lady Macbeth about the prophecy. This letter shows that Macbeth cares about his wife in a way that he trusts her and tells her right away about the prophecy. She is a person on whom Macbeth kind of models his thinking and sees as an equal by calling her his “dearest partner of greatness”. At that time in history the women usually were controlled by the men and the man could decide about and control her life. In the case of the Lady Macbeth, Macbeth treats her as an equal partner which proves his love for her. Lady Macbeth on the other hand shows how she feels about Macbeth with her reaction to his letter and also to Duncan's arrival. As she was informed of the prophecy by Macbeth Lady Macbeth creates the impression that she knows Macbeth really well because she talks about his characteristics a lot but also fears that he is too decent to kill Duncan which becomes clear as she says "yet I do fear thy nature" on page 23 in line 14. In reaction to Duncan's visit and her fears about Macbeth's "nature" she commands the spirits amongst other wishes to unsex her which leads me to the conclusion that she does not really cares about Macbeth on a sexual and physical level all too much. Her plan to kill Duncan and with that gaining power as a queen is far more important and she wants to take matters into her own hands. However, this can be interpreted in two different ways. On the one hand she could just be thinking that Macbeth wants to be king but can't do it by himself and that is why she is dealing with his problems in a strict way as we see later on or on the other hand that she just wants him to become king in order to be queen and she knows that he will be too decent to kill Duncan and that is why she plans to do it herself. This would mean that she isn't really in love with him but in love with the idea of herself becoming queen which would result in pure self-love. "1 That being said their first conversation truly sheds light on their status quo belonging their relationship. As Macbeth greets her with "my dearest love" Lady Macbeth approaches him only with his titles. This can either mean she is respecting him or she is only caring about his titles. Thereafter she tells Macbeth about her plan, that he should leave her in control and along with that what he should and shouldn't do by saying things such as: Macbeth can not even answer fully as she takes over again. As it is displayed right here this shows the imbalance and, in their relationship, and how they see each other through very different perspectives. As Macbeth sees her as a "partner" she wants to take over the control and let her handle things. To this point we can't fully tell her motive but it will become clear later on. Lady Macbeth manipulation: Scene 7 from Act 1 will now prove that Lady Macbeth is not trying to take matters into her own hands because she thinks it is only good for Macbeth's but that she is acting out of pure self-love and craving for power. In this scene Macbeth decides not to kill Duncan because he reflected that he is already in a worshiped and powerful position and that the consequences would be terrible. Lady Macbeth reacts to Macbeth's decision in an embittered and mean way. She insults him and questions his manhood by saying "When you durst do it, then you were a man” in line 49 on page 33. Afterwards she manipulates him into thinking he is a squeamish man by comparing herself with him. “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" she has never done that but she convinces Macbeth that she would do it which manipulates him into thinking he has to own up to his manhood. Macbeth therefore agrees to Lady Macbeth's plan. Lady Macbeth therefore does not really care about Macbeth's worries and only cares about her power. By definition we can now exclude that she is acting out of tough love and can record the fact that she is only in love with herself and her goals and dreams. As for now it has become clear that before the regicide their relationship was already really imbalanced. As Macbeth seems to really worship and care for his wife, Lady Macbeth is starting to only care about power which will slowly destroy their relationship further. Analysis: (after the regicide): But let's have a look at what happened after the regicide. Because this is a whole different story. The regicide: Shortly after the regicide Lady Macbeth tells Macbeth that she would have committed the regicide but Duncan reminded of her father. The reason why she says that might be that she is trying to justify why she has laid the burden of the regicide on Macbeth even though it was clear to her that Macbeth wasn't really ready and that his character traits genuinely speak against committing regicide. This however also shows that she isn't as ruthless as she previously pretended to be by telling Macbeth she would have killed a baby. As Macbeth pours his heart out and admits that it was not easy to kill Duncan Lady Macbeth does not bother to try to comfort her husband and answers with short and insulting words such as "...". Even though Macbeth did what she wanted him to do she confronts him with being squeamish “...”. But still Macbeth does not feel offended which can either mean that he is blinded by love or extremely shocked of what he had just done. The next scene whatsoever is giving us a whole new perspective on their relationship. Macbeth's plan: In this scene Macbeth is really mentally broken and worried about the regicide and this is the first time where Lady Macbeth actually is concerned about her husband and selflessly tries to comfort him by saying things such as "How now, my lord, why do you keep alone, of sorriest fancies your company making" and "What's done, is done". There are actually two different approaches why she is suddenly actually caring about Macbeth's worries instead of totally shutting his thoughts up and insulting him because he is worried. Either she is slowly realizing what damage she has done to her husband's mental health or she feels like the business is done, she is queen and now Macbeth can worry as much as he wants. As always, the truth probably lies somewhere in between those thoughts. Macbeth on the other hand instead of receiving advice and orders from Lady Macbeth for the first time has his own plans and tells his wife what to do. He does not seem to trust her as much anymore or he tries to protect her as he said "Be innocent of the knowledge" meaning his plan. At last, before the regicide it was the other way around. Lady Macbeth was the one planning the regicide and telling Macbeth what to do. As you can see now there is an imbalance in the relationship but this time the other way around. Lady Macbeth instead of manipulating Macbeth is regretting the regicide because she realized what she has caused and what happened to her husband's mental health is now trying to comfort her husband and trying to convince him that Banquo will not be a problem and Macbeth does not have to kill him by saying "you must leave this". The scene might also be interpreted as an eye opener for Lady Macbeth. She seems to really care about her husband again more than she cares about her and Macbeth's power. Macbeth on the other hand only has the power in mind and shutting Lady Macbeth out. He knows that his thoughts are ill which you can see on page 77 in line 36 where he says "O, full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife!" but still he can not stop thinking about potential problems that will come into the way of his power such as Banqou or rather his son Fleance. Macbeth further develops into a person that does not care about anything but his power anymore. The thought of the regicide gets to him and he forgets about the love he used to feel for his wife. Lady Macbeth on the other hand starts to regret the regicide to the fullest and all the other crimes her husband has committed because of her manipulation at the beginning of the play. Lady Macbeth's mental disruption drives her into committing suicide while Macbeth ruthlessly fights to remain king. This leads me to the last scene I chose to portray their relationship. Lady Macbeth's death: Macbeth's reaction to his wife's death. This reaction depicts that the ones loving and caring Macbeth turned into a tyrant in the thrive for power triggered by Lady Macbeth. By saying "she would have died hereafter" as the first thing he said after he was informed about her death he is basically saying that she would have died anyway. He does not show any kind of grief or regrets and only cares about his power. Ironically this extrem and ruthless thrive for power was triggered by Macbeth which in the end has destroyed them both. However, after a quick thought and reaction he changes the subject just like nothing happened. Conclusion: All this being said, there are a lot of different ways to interpret their relationship. Still it should have become clear that their relationship was never an equal and balanced relationship which is key to an honest love relationship. Macbeth as well as Lady Macbeth have clearly lost their love for each other in their thrive for power. First Lady Macbeth only cared about the prophecy and her becoming queen while Macbeth wasn't sure whether he is willing to commit the regicide. He still loved his wife a lot and trusted her. This trust was used to manipulate him and he committed the regicide. At this moment their relationship had a turning point. Lady Macbeth surprisingly could not handle the situation and she broke mentally which led to her death. Macbeth on the other hand began to feel the strong will for power and ruthlessly did everything to remain the power he had gained. This made him forget who he was and the love he once felt for his wife. The Macbeth's therefore were in love once but one after the other was manipulated by the power they wanted to gain and the temptation to gain even more power. Their feelings were therefore buried under the thrive for power. After the prophecy the relationship was therefore very unequal and imbalanced which leads to the conclusion that the Macbeth's are not in a love relationship but rather partners in crime. Name: ..

After the regicide: i. ii. 111. Act 2 Scene 2 (regicide) Act 3 Scene 2 (Macbeth's plan) Act 5 Scene 5 (Lady Macbeth's death) 4. Conclusion It is quite obvious that Lady Macbeths strong will and controlling personality is influencing Macbeth to commit the regicide. Before Macbeth puts his wife's plan into action their relationship seems to be relatively passionate even though it is clear that there is quite an imbalance considering Lady Macbeth's dominance and power over Macbeth's actions. As Macbeth was unsure about the meaning of the prophecy and very terrified of the thought of killing Duncan, Lady Macbeth is convinced that she has to take control of the situation by forcing Macbeth to kill Duncan as she realizes that he fears to commit the regicide. This, therefore, shows that she is selfish and doesn't care about Macbeths worries which leads to the conclusion that it can not be tough love but pure self-love that drives Lady Macbeth to manipulate her husband into killing Duncan for her to become queen. She, therefore, is in love with the idea to be a powerful queen but not so much in love with Macbeth, she regards Macbeth as merely a means to an end. After the regicide, the relationship seems to change thoroughly. Macbeth seems to have become very ruthless and finds himself in an inner turmoil because he does not know who he is now and who he once was. He overcomes his haunting fears and does not care to hurt anyone anymore because he is so determined to remain king, fearing the second part of the witches' prophecy that Banquo's sons will be kings will come true. Concerning the relationship between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, Macbeth does not consult his wife before he takes further actions anymore which shows that he now feels powerful and independent enough to take matters into his own hands. This creates another problem in their relationship because now Macbeth is the one that cares about his 3. Methoden und Verfahren 4. Medien 5. Quellen/ Literatur wife less than about his power. Additionally, he also seems to have stopped relying on his wife as much because he recognized that he is capable to handle situations on his own which also accelerates the inner turmoil Macbeth will find himself in as he step by step turns into a ruthless tyrant. Lady Macbeth on the other hand seems to slowly regret the regicide because she realizes what she has started and how she pushed her husband into becoming a cold-hearted tyrant. In conclusion, it becomes very clear that Lady Macbeth was very controlling of Macbeth before the regicide, which has led to an inequality regarding their affection and passion for each other from the start. After the regicide Lady Macbeth's mental health slowly seems to get worse while Macbeth only has the goal to remain king. It seems like Macbeth does not even notice how bad Lady Macbeth truly feels. Even after the death of his wife he does not show any regrets or grief. That leads me to believe that he can not have truly loved Lady Macbeth or rather that his strong thrive for power triggered by Lady Macbeth has led to an inner conflict which resulted in Macbeth forgetting who he was and what he fought for and possibly also that he once loved his wife. The Macbeth's therefore were in love once but as the prophecy got into their heads and their thrive to be powerful became stronger they started to stop listening to each other and their feelings for each other were buried under the regicide. I reread the important scenes where Macbeth and Lady Macbeth interacted with each other in order to be able to thoroughly analyse the given task. In addition to that, I looked up definitions of love, tough love and self-love to fully understand what a love relationship consists of and whether Lady Macbeth and Macbeth fulfil these characteristics or not. I intend to use PowerPoint to visualize my presentation. 1. Gibson, Rex (2014). Macbeth. Third edition. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge School Shakespeare 2.

She, therefore, is in love with the idea to be a powerful queen but not so much in love with Macbeth, she regards Macbeth as merely a means to an end. After the regicide, the relationship seems to change thoroughly. Macbeth seems to have become very ruthless and finds himself in an inner turmoil because he does not know who he is now and who he once was. He overcomes his haunting fears and does not care to hurt anyone anymore because he is so determined to remain king, fearing the second part of the witches' prophecy that Banquo's sons will be kings will come true. Concerning the relationship between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, Macbeth does not consult his wife before he takes further actions anymore which shows that he now feels powerful and independent enough to take matters into his own hands. This creates another problem in their relationship because now Macbeth is the one that cares about his 3. Methoden und Verfahren 4. Medien 5. Quellen/ Literatur wife less than about his power. Additionally, he also seems to have stopped relying on his wife as much because he recognized that he is capable to handle situations on his own which also accelerates the inner turmoil Macbeth will find himself in as he step by step turns into a ruthless tyrant. Lady Macbeth on the other hand seems to slowly regret the regicide because she realizes what she has started and how she pushed her husband into becoming a cold-hearted tyrant. In conclusion, it becomes very clear that Lady Macbeth was very controlling of Macbeth before the regicide, which has led to an inequality regarding their affection and passion for each other from the start. After the regicide Lady Macbeth's mental health slowly seems to get worse while Macbeth only has the goal to remain king. It seems like Macbeth does not even notice how bad Lady Macbeth truly feels. Even after the death of his wife he does not show any regrets or grief. That leads me to believe that he can not have truly loved Lady Macbeth or rather that his strong thrive for power triggered by Lady Macbeth has led to an inner conflict which resulted in Macbeth forgetting who he was and what he fought for and possibly also that he once loved his wife. The Macbeth's therefore were in love once but as the prophecy got into their heads and their thrive to be powerful became stronger they started to stop listening to each other and their feelings for each other were buried under the regicide. I reread the important scenes where Macbeth and Lady Macbeth interacted with each other in order to be able to thoroughly analyse the given task. In addition to that, I looked up definitions of love, tough love and self-love to fully understand what a love relationship consists of and whether Lady Macbeth and Macbeth fulfil these characteristics or not. I intend to use PowerPoint to visualize my presentation. 1. Gibson, Rex (2014). Macbeth. Third edition. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge School Shakespeare 2.
