I chose this picture as i felt that it showed one of the more subtle themes in Macbeth: the issue of gender. Lady Macbeth and other characters speak multiple times about characteristics associated with each gender, and how they allow as well as prevent them from performing certain acts. This picture relates to the quote chosen as the person is "unsexed": a genderless being with none of the weaknesses of either gender.
“Confusion now hath made his masterpiece.” This quote brings about one of the strong themes in Macbeth, chaos. The murdering and death spirals out of control quickly, a bloody jumble of chaos and confusion.
