Lady Macbeth is an evil character in Shakespeare's Macbeth. She is the wife of the play's central character or the leading role, Macbeth, a Scottish nobleman, - the Thane of Glamis and Cawdor. According to the actual play, General Macbeth and King Duncan were brothers or cousins and their wives Lady Macbeth (General Macbeth’s wife) and Lady Duncan (King Duncan's wife) were sisters or cousins, where first Duncan's wife had a stronger claim to the throne than Lady Macbeth. It was this that motivated, increased and provoked her jealousy and hatred of Duncan.  

After, Lady Macbeth hears both of the coming royal visit of Duncan, and also about the three witches and their prophecies, she became very ambitious. As she loved her husband, she resolved to find the way to make him (Macbeth) the king. She was very determined to make Macbeth - the King of Scotland, for she knew that this outcome will benefit her and her husband equally. She immediately concludes that "the fastest way" for Macbeth to become king is by murdering King Duncan. She was jealous because Lady Duncan's husband Duncan became the king.

Lady Macbeth's immediate thoughts were clearly very cold and ambitious. But furthermore, Lady Macbeth also knew her husband’s nature, as well. She thinks he maybe too kind in order to murder King Duncan. He is she thinks “too full of the milk of human kindness” This is why, she does not proceed in her planned conscience immediately, so that she can later guide Macbeth into committing the deed so that Macbeth becomes alright of his sick kindness. At first Macbeth agrees. But later Macbeth wavers in his decision. But, Lady Macbeth is sure that being king is what Macbeth really wants and he thinks that this is the best for both of them. So, in response to Macbeth's doubt, Lady Macbeth manipulates him by questioning his manhood and his love for her. This was one of her first evil deeds in the beginning of the story, which was, - proposing Macbeth for killing Duncan.

After killing Duncan, Macbeth and she became the King and Queen of Scotland. After insisting Macbeth into committing King Duncan’s murder, he too became very murderous and ambitious like Lady Macbeth. Perhaps, far more, murderous, fatal, cruel, brutal, deadlier and ambitious than Lady Macbeth.

Macbeth did not stop, he was not satisfied; he wanted to kill his friend, Banquo, another loyal general at his time. For killing him and his son, he invited them to a banquet and kills Banquo on the way to Macbeth’s castle. Though, Fleance- his son escaped. There in the banquet at Macbeth’s castle, the ghost of Banquo arrived and kept asking about, which one of are guilty of shedding my blood, only Macbeth could see the ghost and began to talk to him guiltily. There also Lady Macbeth played her part, well. She was quick in reacting and immediately said to the assembled guests that, his husband had often fits like that. Then in the end of the story, when Macbeth heard, that Macduff was raising a big army against him, he ordered that all his family members, including his wife and children to be all killed. The man who had been so tormented by doubts before committing his first murder, could now ordered the deaths of innocent children, without the slightest hesitation.

But his wife - Lady Macbeth at the same moment, who had been so hard and ambitious at the beginning, seemed to be going mad. She had started talking in her dreams and walked around the castle trying to wash an imaginary spot of blood from her hands. In the beginning of the story, we have seen her very ambitious and determined, but because she was guilty; she was suffering the torment of her conscience. Really, Lady Macbeth was revealing her guilt and anguish. Later however, not bearing the torment of hers, she killed herself. 

Althroughout the story, the reader might seem that Macbeth is the wrong-doer but, really it is Lady Macbeth. Because, Macbeth was not bad in the start of the story but, the real evil character was Lady Macbeth, who first insisted Macbeth to commit his first murder knowing that he can later do the subsequent ones easily, in behalf of her. Lady Macbeth did only one evil task – influencing Macbeth in becoming cold-hearted. Influencing Macbeth was the point in the story from where many other evil acts followed.

At the beginning of the story/play, Lady Macbeth seemed a stronger character than Macbeth, but because of her jealousy and evil acts, she suffers pangs of guilt for her part in the crime and dies in the last, an obvious suicide.

The moral we learn from observing Lady Macbeth is that - jealousy gives rise or proceeds to many wicked deeds and a wicked deed ultimately brings death (in bengali translation, lobhe pap pape mrithu).
