Which of the following BEST provides analysis of Macbeth's word choice diction when he says,

And even now / To crown my thoughts with acts, be it thought and done?

A

Macbeth's words create an antithesis between thoughts and acts, with Macbeth clearly thinking little of "thought."

B

The use of the word "even" emphasizes the importance of time, as every moment is vital to Macbeth.

C

Macbeth portrays himself as someone who puts others in power, which is ironic given that he himself is king and should therefore act in power.

D

Macbeth's use of "now" and "done" demonstrates his growing fear of taking action as he realizes how permanent and devastating those actions can be.

E

Macbeth uses the word "crown" to describe how actions give power to thoughts, appropriate as he makes plans to maintain his crown.
