Over de expositie

Lady Macbeth:
The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe topful
Of direst cruelty!
Macbeth Act 1, scene 5, 38–43

“Unsex me here” is a famous quote from Macbeth. It’s basically Lady Macbeth asking to become a warrior. If she can trade off femininity for masculinity she will be able to fight. She wants to be someone she is not.
