Text Support
Ambitious and serious to do what it takes to get what she wants “not lose the dues of rejoicing, by being ignorant of what greatness is promised thee” Actions
She convince Macbeth to kill King Duncan and after he is killed she would frame the servants to make it look like they killed him “But screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we’ll not fail…” “If he do bleed, I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal, For it must seem their guilt.” Speech

Nothing bother her really because instead of feeling guilty, she don’t “A little water clears us of this deed: How easy is it then!” Thoughts
She is so shameless and realizing how her husband is, she don’t want to be like and I think she only care about herself “My hands are of your color, but I shame/To wear a heart so white.” Interactions

She was disappointed because Macbeth didn’t want to kill the king “Was the hope drunk /Wherein you dress’d yourself? hath it slept since? /And wakes it now, to look so green and pale /At what it did so freely?”


Text Support
He seems ambitious and want to do good unlike his wife
“Strong both against the deed: then, as his host, /Who should against his murderer shut the door, /Not bear the knife myself.” Actions
He was convinced by what his wife told him to do and eventually he killed the king “I go, and it is done; the bell invites me. /Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell /That summons thee to heaven or to hell.” Speech

He speaks as if he is regretting and after killing the king, it really put a scar on him and he could never live with himself “How isn’t with me, when every noise appeals me? /What hands are here? Ha, they pluck out mine eyes!” Thoughts

He is guilty of killing Duncan and couldn’t get that off his mind “Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood /Clean from my hand? No; this my hand will rather /The multitudinous seas incarnadine, /Making the green one red.” Interactions

At first he didn’t wanted to murder Duncan but, after his wife convince him, he did it anyway and regrets it big time “I’ll go no more: /I am afraid to think what I have done; /Look on’t again I dare not.” “Infirm of purpose!”
