    Do you only want arguments about why Lady Macbeth is responsible?

    Yes please.
    But i would also like some points to argue against the other team who are claiming macbeth are responsible.

    You could argue that she is responsible because she manipulated Macbeth and he had to be persuaded so it was not his idea and therefore not his doing.

    You could say that if Lady Macbeth hadn't manipulated Macbeth, then he wouldn't have murdered Duncan. The evidence is that Macbeth had many doubts about committing regicide but Lady Macbeth persuaded him. Also, you could argue that right from the start when we meet her in the play, she already begins to plot the murder.

    I'm guessing the other team will argue that Macbeth is the one who carried out the deed but you should argue that he wouldn't have done it without her manipulation.

    Should it not be referred to as the Scottish Play?

    Link her to the supernatural world and the witches and talk about how she uses paradoxical language to show how she had power over Macbeth
