Hills & Gardens

“Come, you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, and fill me, from the crown to the toe, topfull of direst cruelty!”
These words are spoken by one of the most notorious villainesses in English literature — Lady Macbeth. And when, through her formidable power of persuasion, she convinces her reluctant husband to kill the King of Scotland so that he, Macbeth, may sit on the throne with her by his side, the ensuing bloodbath drives the lady mad.
