Practice Intro 2

Describe at least one important relationship in the written text. 

Explain how the writer uses the relationship to explore conflict(s).  

Macbeth is actually weak. “Full o the milk of human kindness”. The play ‘Macbeth’ by William Shakespeare shows a very important relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Shakespeare uses the relationship between this husband and wife to further explore Macbeth’s internal conflict bounded by his morals and ambition.  In Act 1 of the play Lady M embodies the ambition to rule Scotland and Macbeth remains conscious of his morals. The writer uses the relationship to externally explore the conflict within Macbeth’s head. Is it worth the glory, power and money to kill Duncan?

The first glimpse of the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth Shakespeare gives us is in the first act.
