“Beetlewing dress” worn by Victorian actress Ellen Terry to play Lady Macbeth, painted by John Singer Sargeant


Imagery Lady Macbeth: This picture portrays Macbeth's wife as a strong warrior due to the clothing and the the way her hair tied. She is the strongest one between herself and Macbeht. The knife crown shows that she did something terrible (probably something to do with death) to become Queen/Leader. Lady Macbeth will be a key character in the play because she is the one who convinced Macbeth to kill King Duncan.
