lady macbeth was one of my favorite characters of all time, not really because of herself…but because of my teacher. every time she mentioned lady macbeth, she would say it in a crazy voice and then point her two index fingers to her head. i’m not sure if it was some way of telling us that she was lady macbeth like, or just her way of saying she was in important character. all i know is martha burr was an impossibly hard grader. in any event, lady macbeth is one of those 100% pure evil women, you know, a bitch. there are so many evils in macbeth and it’s hard to place the blame for what happens on one single character. she was certainly a motivator though, and that’s almost worse than being a perpetrator. power hungry, pure evil with no regard for consequences, i’d like to think lady macbeth would fit in with today pretty well.
for the record, i don’t think my english teacher was a murder motivator…she was a motivator though, i’ll give her that.
