Sample of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth
Charles Dickens It's worth knowing more about Dickens' own life when reading a Dickens novel, since he often drew heavily from his experiences for his writing. Plus, he had a really interesting life, full of drama and scandal.
Macbeth and Lady Macbeth An ambitious, no-holds-barred wife supports and even bullies her husband to commit violent acts that he might not be comfortable with. Sound familiar? Madame Defarge and Lady Macbeth have a lot in common, as do their husbands. In fact, it may not be a bad idea to wonder whether Dickens got some of his ideas for the Defarges from Shakespeare's famous couple of crime.
