Enter Lady Macbeth
The underlying theme is the exploration of the condition of man and his nature, particularly, here, in terms of the power and his exercise. The sense of Shakespeare tragedy is the transition from a fatal and magic sphere to the psychological and human one. Like the witches, Lady Macbeth becomes a creature of the night and her identification with those beings, who seem exhalations of the earth and the air, incarnated in her own physical feminine presence, underscores the progressive transition to the metaphysical to the human.
The nature explored embodies the creative and destructive passage of the events, the force which incites, transforms, exalts, condemns and arms, along a tragic path made of promises, potential, ambition, fear, guilt, blame, punishment and madness; all emerging from the wild flow of human conscience.
