What Does Lady Macbeth Lose

Power and Control
At the beginning of the play (act 1 scene 5) Lady Macbeth is full of control and power and this is clearly seen throughout the first three acts of the play.

However we all notice this in the way that Macbeth addresses her. It is only shown in private actually how weak is Lady Macbeth. Opposite from the violent personality, she is horrified by blood.

A small sign that Lady macbeth loses her power and control over Macbeth is that even when she scolds him with her persuasion it no longer works as it did at the beginning of the play which she used to manipulate him to kill king Duncan.
