Driven by the lust to become the Queen of Scotland, Lady Macbeth constantly mocks Macbeth and questions him about his manliness. She manipulates Macbeth into assassinating King Duncan by using her cunning and tricky choice of words. To gain more superiority, Lady Macbeth plans the King’s death and influences Macbeth to follow along with her plan. Initially, Macbeth hesitates over the thought of murdering King Duncan for his ambitions, but Lady Macbeth becomes successful in persuading him to do so by questioning his masculinity.
