The truth lies in one of her lines in Act 1, Scene 1. “There is further compliment of leave-taking between France and him [Lear]. Pray you let’s hit together.

    Throughout Shakespeare’s greatest works there is the ever present use of guilt and madness to add depth to characters, further drama and plot and sometimes to even lengthen the work itself. From Hamlet’s constant struggle to murder his incestuous uncle to Macbeth’s sudden ability to see ghostly blood-covered daggers, it is clear to see that Shakespeare has a method to his madness. Shakespeare uses guilt as a sort of net for the humanity of his characters. Throughout Macbeth and Hamlet shakes’ characters

Macbeth, over the course of the play, fails to balance his loyalty to king and country
