Ambition is a feeling someone has when they really want something that they do not have. They will fight to the end to accomplish this feeling and get what they want. They won’t stop until they are complacent with their wants. No matter how hard it may seem, they will always find a way to get what they want. People will make it their prerogative to get what they want, when they want it. Sometimes, they are oblivious of what’s going on around them. They’re too caught up in the good they’re receiving than the bad their encountering. Power is the authority in which someone has over someone else or a group of people. Power is like controlling everyone and everything. When someone has power, they feel in charge like no one can tell them anything. They start to be dogmatic and devious. Power can change a person simply because everything now revolves around them. Lady Macbeth had power and she also had ambition too. Her ambition motivated and encouraged her to go after what she believed her husband should have. She did anything so her husband could have all the power. She had a lot of power as well as her husband. She used her power so that her husband could be king. When her husband told her about the witches’ prophecies, she had no doubt in her heart that things would get better for them. She had the power to manipulate her husband, make people believe her lies, and encourage her husband into doing bad and negative things. Manipulation is the way in which someone uses to get someone else to do something that they want. They will put things in their head and no sooner than later, they’ll start to believe them. Manipulation is another way by persuading someone. The only difference is when you manipulating someone, they start to do what you told them to do. “…Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead are but as pictures. ‘Tis the eye of childhood that fears a paint devil. If he [does] bleed, I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal, for it must seem their guilt.” (Shakespeare 57). Lady Macbeth has finally manipulated her husband into killing King Duncan. She takes the bloody daggers and places them next to the servants. She does this so instead of her or her husband getting blamed for the murder, the servants would be blamed for the death of the king. Now that her husband has killed him, he now is about to become king. Lady Macbeth has now made the witches’ other prophecies come true. “…Retire [us] to our chamber. A little water clears us of this deed. How easy is it then! Your constancy hath left you unattended…lest [occasions call us and shows] us to be watchers…” (Shakespeare 59). Now that her husband has done what she had asked, they go back to their room when they hear a knock at the door. Lady Macbeth tells her husband that his courage has left him. When someone has come to the house, she tells Macbeth they have to go to sleep before someone finds them awake and suspects them of the murder. She manipulated her husband into a being liar and a murder. Lady Macbeth has become so devious that she influenced others to believe her lies as well. Some people can make up a lie so believable that people will actually believe it, no matter the circumstances. The problem with telling lies is a person has to keep telling other lies just keep the first lie they told believable. Telling if someone has lied is very hard to prove because everyone is unique in their own way. You’ll never know if it’s a lie or the truth. Anyone can make another person believe them no matter what others may to say. “…I am settled and bend up each corporal agent to this terrible feat. Away, and mock the time with fairest show; false face must hide what the false heart doth know.” (Shakespeare 45) Macbeth has made up his mind now. Lady Macbeth and Macbeth will return to the banquet and deceive everyone by having gracious faces to hide their evil intent. This will be a way that others will not
