Lady macbeth metaphor


In act 1, scene 5 shakespeare shows conflict through metaphors such as,

“That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here”

Lady macbeth is in this scene speaking to the supernatural(witches, wizards, god…etc) and is saying she wants to have her feminine qualities removed because she is sick of the way she has to ask as a woman an not a man. therefor in this scene she is provoking the supernatural because she is defying how the world is being run by the kings. the reason it is dangerous to disobey the kings is because people believed that the kings were chosen by god and to disobey the kings is therefore defying god.
