How does Shakespeare present the different feelings and attitudes of Lady Macbeth and
Macbeth in the following extract from Act 2 Scene 2?


MACBETH One cried ‘God bless us!’ and ‘Amen’ the other,
As they had seen me with these hangman’s hands.
List’ning their fear, I could not say ‘Amen’
When they did say ‘God bless us.’
LADY MACBETH Consider it not so deeply.
MACBET H But wherefore could not I pronounce ‘Amen’?
I had most need of blessing and ‘Amen’
Stuck in my throat.
LADY MACBETH These deeds must not be thought
After these ways; so, it will make us mad.
MACBETH Methought I heard a voice cry, ‘Sleep no more:
Macbeth does murder sleep’, the innocent sleep,
Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleeve of care,
The death of each day’s life, sore labour’s bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.
LADY MACBETH What do you mean?
MACBETH Still it cried, ‘Sleep no more’ to all the house;
‘Glamis hath murdered sleep’, and therefore Cawdor
Shall sleep no more: Macbeth shall sleep no more.
and then Part (b)
How does Shakespeare present Lady Macbeth’s and Macbeth’s feelings and attitudes
when they are together in a different part of the play? (30 marks)
