    I think lady macbeth would be very annoyed br ause he is argueing with her and not saying very nice things and she would argue back maby or just thinknin hear heaf on how annoyed she may be

    Lady Macbeth seems shocked to hear that Macbeth doesn’t want to carry on with the plan. Macbeth says “we can’t go on with this plan. The king has just honored me, and I have earned the good opinion of all sorts of people. I want to enjoy these honors while the feeling is fresh and not throw them away so soon.” He sounds like he would feel very guilty if he killed King Duncan.

    I think lady Macbeth would feel betrayed by Macbeth for not going along with the plan, this is what she really wanted and what he said he would do. And for him to now decide to not go along with it, she must feel very hurt,”. For example “I dare to do only what is proper for a man to do.” This shows he just feel guilt and that the king is his famt therefor it would not be right to kill him.

    i believe that lady macbeth is not surprised at the fact that macbeth did not wish to kill the knig. i believe this because at the start of the clip her expression was not one of shock i believe it was one of disappointment, because she truly thinks of Macbeth being the king he would be a more fulfilled man and would finally meet up to her expectations.

    I think that she was not very surprised that he wasn’t going to kill him, but also angry and felt betrayed because Macbeth didn’t go along with the plan. But I feel as though lady Macbeth might kill the kind later on.

    I think Macbeth is a really good and kind man. And he with king Duncan is a really really good friend, like a brother.But lady Macbeth I think she is very evil and always want to controlling people.And in this part, Lady Macbeth try to break their friendship, and she try to change Macbeth’s idea to become kill King Duncan. She taunts Macbeth. Because before Macbeth already decides don’t want to kill the king but because Lady Macbeth say” always saying” I can’t after you say” I want to”? you’re like the poor cat in the old story”. and because Macbeth love lady Macbeth. So he is true lady Macbeth and change to kill King Duncan.

    I feel that Lady Macbeth would be shocked at what Mabeth said to her. For example, Macbeth said, “we can’t go on with this plan. The king has just honored me, and I have earned the good opinion of all sorts of people. I feel that she would be dissapointed as they planned this for a while and now Macbeth doesn’t want to do it.

  8. Elliot

    I think that lady is shocked or not ready to go through with the idea of killing Duncan as she says “we can’t go on with this plan” showing that she is still got some womanly emotions after her soliloquy.

  9. max

    I believe she is annoyed with Macbeth because he has changed his mind about murdering Macbeth and try’s to change his mind to murder him and she slowly succeeds

  10. Josh s

    I believe that lady Macbeth is frustrated with Macbeth because he was going along with her plans the whole time and then suddenly when it came to it he couldn’t. For example when he says “who dares do more is none.” This shows that he is saying to lady Macbeth that killing a dear friend who is also your cousin isn’t a manly thing to do.
