    I can't write your intro for you, but some points to consider would be:

    - she shows a lot of 'strength' as a character throughout the play, at many points more so than her husband. The scene where she attempts to convince him to kill Duncan, and the banquet scene, are good places to start there.
    - as the play progresses, her previous strength begins to deteriorate - a prime example is her "out, out blind spot" soliloquy near the end.
    - this is perhaps more of an obscure point, but when talking about killing the King, she mentions that she would do it herself if he didn't look like her father. You may wish to include this as a weakness at some point?

    Hope these help; good luck with your essay
