    This question was in my mock last year (currently in Year 11) and really screwed me over: note that the question probably is 'How is ambition portrayed/displayed in Macbeth?'

    Hence, you can and should take about Lady Macbeth.

    You can talk about:
    • the change of Macbeth's wanting to become great - he starts off reluctant [quote about if it were done, then it is better if it is done quickly] then fights to the death.
    • the driving force behind Macbeth's ambition - Lady Macbeth - who, herself, subverts the patriarchal norms, [look like the innocent flower but be the serpent underneath]


    et cetera, et cetera
