In the play Macbeth by William Shakespere, Macbeth and Lady Macbet go threw many drastic changes in their relationship. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s realationship is one of the roles of the play that creates most of the actions, reactions, moods, feelings and attitudes.
Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have a strong relationship because they have good communication, they use terms of endearment to address each other and they make huge sacrifices for each other. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth show that they have remarkable communication because when Macbeth hears about the prophecies from the witches, he is eager to tell Lady Macbeth, this is evident when Macbeth says “I’ll be myself the harbinger and make joyful/the hearing of my wife with your approach” ( I.iv;51-52) Macbeth and Lady Macbeth also make huge sacrifices for one another this is shown in the play when Lady Macbeth states in Act one Scene seven “I would while it was smiling at me/ have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums/ and dash’d his brains out, had I sworn so” Lady Macbeth is trying to show Macbeth that she would go to the ends of the earth for him if she had to, saying that nothing would get in the way of their relationship, not even their child. Lady Macbeth and Macbeth also use terms of endearment to address each other this is evident when Macbeth states “My dearest love” (I.v;63) This shows that Macbeth cares for Lady Macbeth, as well as expressing his love for her with a pet name. Macbeth confides in his wife for help and support, Macbeth refers to Lady Macbeth as “my dearest partner of greatness”( he writes his letter to Lady Macbeth letting her know what’s been happening and his well being. It shows they have little secrets between each other and share everything. This quote is a good example to compare how their relationship later then changes.
