Pham 1 Stephanie Pham H. Wilson IB English August 29, 2009 Macbeth  Study Guide Act V Scene 1 41. Lady Macbeth’s behavior after the murders is different because she’s no longer as  cruel or callous. The lines imply that she is feeling guilt over all that she and Macbeth  have done. Her conscience has caught up with her and it is manifesting itself in her  sleep. She seems to need the light because she is continually repeating the ritual of  rising from her bed, putting on her nightgown, unlocking her closet, getting paper,  folding it, writing on it, and going back to bed. She is going insane, and wants to stay in  the light. 42.  She keeps washing her hands because she is imagining that there is blood on her  hands. She metaphorically has blood on her hands because she plotted to kill Duncan,  but she is seeing real blood on her hands and feels the need to wash it off. Scene 3
