Hi can anyone help as to finding pairs of disturbed women in the Laboratory and Macbeth? I need help ASAP as I have an exam this week. I just need two women to compare from the texts, and quotes to back them up would be useful. thanks

Is this the Laboratory by Robert Browning? I would say Lady Macbeth and the narrator of the Laboratory are both unnervingly enthusiastic about murder yet relatively naive as well. For example, the narrator doesn't know much about science yet is enthusiastic about the colours of poisons, while Lady Macbeth is implied to have cast a spell on herself when she gets the first letter from her husband, but is clearly dabbling in forces she doesn't understand. It's been a while since I read Macbeth, so I don't have the quotes, but in the Laboratory you might find quotes like 'What a wild crowd of invisible pleasures' useful. Try to think of differences between them as well- are they doing it for the same reasons?
