Lady Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most famous and frightening female characters.
When we first see her, she is already plotting Duncan’s murder, and she is stronger, more ruthless, and more ambitious than her husband.
She seems fully aware of this and knows that she will have to push Macbeth into committing murder.
At one point, she wishes that she were not a woman so that she could do it herself.
This theme of the relationship between gender and power is key to Lady Macbeth’s character: her husband implies that she is a masculine soul inhabiting a female body, which seems to link masculinity to ambition and violence.
Shakespeare, however, seems to use her, and the witches, to undercut Macbeth’s idea that “undaunted mettle should compose / Nothing but males” (1.7.73–74).
Sometimes they are successful and sometimes unsuccessful depending upon the nature of the means. If a person does not go to the field, his ambition to be a farmer cannot be fulfilled. It is therefore advisable to be practical in our ambition.
Similarly, a student with an ambition to be a doctor should read diligently. Thus, ambition coupled with hard work brings success and prosperity. In the sphere of games and sports, mere ambition has no meaning.
