“Lady” was a short story I wrote on Lady Macbeth a few months ago. I was deeply moved by studying Macbeth in school, and enjoyed the opportunity to find humanity in such an infamous character.
I find something about the idea of female characters spiralling out of control fascinating. The concept of female rage has been explored a lot post-MeToo, but I think it’s been bubbling away under the surface of mythologies and histories since time immemorial.
I might write an essay on the idea soon, but for now, enjoy “Lady“.
