As a modernistic text in Shakespeare’s numerous creations, Macbeth has become a focus of the attention for quite a number of researchers. However, although the interpretation of Lady Macbeth has increasingly deepened in the past few decades because of the advance of feminism, the discourse and concepts still cannot be free from the restriction of male phallocentricism. After reviewing and analyzing the previous studies, this article draws on the theory of post-feminism and tries to explore how Lady Macbeth strives to establish her own discourse right in the text. Furthermore, it also provides the elaborate evaluation of breakthrough and inevitable limits coexisting in the process of transferring her desire by disciplining, as well as the possibility for Lady Macbeth’s to seek out her ego and to construct the personality in her crazy and writing. To some extent, through new ways of interpretation which distinguish from the traditional ones, this article might provide the meaningful supplement and extension for recognizing the image of Lady Macbeth.
