Macbeth and Lady MacbethWatch
This shows Lady Macbeth is manipulative as she is twisting the idea of manhood to suit her aims and the leader of their marriage as she is in control
'Was the hope drunk/ Wherein you dressed yourself? Hath it slept since?
Lady Macbeth is mocking Macbeth here and is questioning whether Macbeth still wants to be king (ridiculing the idea of him changing his mind). The noun 'hope' is personified making it seem as a seperating entity acting on its own accord which shows that Lady Macbeth thinks that Macbeth has no control over his mind. [Might be a stretch]
Act 1 Scene 5 Lines 11-12
'my dearest partner of/ greatness'
Macbeth clearly loves his wife and treats her with lots of care and respect due to the superlative 'dearest'
Macbeth also consults with his wife.
Act 1 Scene 7 Lines 49-51
'when you durst do it, then you were a man'
Lady Macbeth questions Macbeth's manhood and forces her expectations onto him. This is directly constrated to Macbeth's exploits on the battlefield earlier on the play, when he was portrayed as a brave, valiant hero.
