When Macbeth is introduced to the witches he foresees himself as king.
Lady Macbeth, who is ambitious and domineering, craves power.
Even though they are far apart they can almost read each other’s thoughts, they both plan to kill Duncan to order to become king and queen of Scotland. ” Duncan awards Macbeth with the title of Thane of Cawdor, as the previous Thane was a traitor.
When we are first introduced to Macbeth, he is portrayed as a violent, fearless warrior. This is ironic as what Duncan doesn’t know is that Macbeth will be a far more successful traitor.
She asks them to suppress any kindness and guilt that may weaken her determination to murder Duncan.
The Husband and Wife have a close relationship at this part of the play.
