Abstract [en]
The portrait of the two ladies Lady Macbeth and Martha is that of a sexual seductress and temptress, as in Eve, the whore. More over, they are portrayed as angry women. They refuse the role of woman as weak and subordinate. Instead, they take on the roles as disobedient wives and averying "missing" mothers. Yet, they perceive themselves as mothers and act out their motherhood as a performance. My aim with this essay has been to explore "the mother" in two plays where the women's role as mother is ambiguous. The analysis has shown that today Macbeth and Martha share characteristics with Eve and because of that, they are aborted their mother roles/rights.
