Romantic Couples in Literature

7 of 12
Macbeth

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth
Macbeth,
by William Shakespeare


Proving that femme fatales preceded feminism, Lady Macbeth wields a weighty influence over her infatuated husband. When she urges him to seize the crown by murdering the current king, her infectious ambition takes hold, and the easily manipulated Macbeth takes measures to carry out the treasonous scheme. The wicked pair's connection is made only stronger by their shared secret, but their plans unravel when Lacy Macbeth dies. Left without his partner in crime, Macbeth is weakened, exposed, and killed. This play reminds of us of the infinite power of two - stronger together than apart.

Next: Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler
Gone with the Wind,
by Margaret Mitchell
