English - Act three, scene two

Act three, scene two

It has been most noticeable that since the murder of Duncan, Macbeth and
his wife have not spoken together on stage. This scene has Lady Macbeth ask
a servant to call her husband to her, an indication of the disintegration
of their relationship. This idea is supported when Macbeth reveals that he
has something planned but will not share it with his wife who he had
previously called his "PARTNER IN GREATNESS" (1,5). Lady Macbeth is
reluctant to add another murder to those already committed. Macbeth does
not tell his wife that he has already given the orders to have Banquo and
Fleance murdered.
