This paper argues many points involving the influence of Lady Macbeth on the murders committed by Macbeth. It looks at how women influenced men in society, even in the days of Shakespeare, and how this theme was written about by the playwright.

From the Paper:

"The familiar quote "Behind every great man there is a great woman." Is used to describe the impact women make on the men with whom they accompany. Even in Elizabethan times, though women did not have the same rights as men they made an incredible impact on society. Since the beginning of time the will of a woman has always been in direct correlation with the actions of a man. In Macbeth, one of Shakespeare's most famous plays, Lady Macbeth supplies the fuel behind the fire of Macbeth's murders. Macbeth and his Lady share many traits but they also have many differences."
