Measure for Measure (Folger Shakespeare Library)

Characters Î Measure for Measure (Folger Shakespeare Library) ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ption in present culture to evoke continuing fascination To some the duke the government seems meddlesome; to others he is properly imposing moral standards Angelo and Isabellas encounter exemplifies sexual harassment Others see a womans right to control her body in Isabellas choice between her virginity and her brothers life The authoritative edition o. Shakespeare s plays all have this uncanny ability to transcend time and place and say something to each generation of readers This play in particular is especially relevant these days considering how much there is on the news about sexual harassment and abuse of power The latter topic is certainly a mainstay of Shakespeare s plays but rarely does he ever examine the former topic so closely as he does in Measure for Measure A certain duke mysteriously leaves his duchy in the hands of an inexperienced cabinet member Angelo who begins a relentless campaign against violators of decency laws He closes all brothels arrests all its patrons and employees and sentences Claudio to death for impregnating a woman out of wedlock Claudio s only hope of escaping the hangman is his sister Isabella who is drawn into a predicament of her own when she tries to intercede Angelo demands that she lay down the treasures of her body in exchange for her brother s release a uid pro uo that the soon to be nun Isabella cannot consider How will Claudio be savedMeasure for Measure has all the hallmarks of a Shakespeare comedy disguises dramatic irony reversal of fortune fools double entendres There is even the appearance of a prostitute The play also looks into some rather serious issues such as the law and its impact on society Sometimes those who are least guilty are most affected by the law Rulers often make themselves above the law and violate it even as they enforce it As in Merchant of Venice characters must work in mysterious ways for justice to be served And only Shakespeare can serve up justice in a stew of hypocrisy and misplaced blame like thisI have to say that while this is an incredibly rewarding read the notes are an absolute must as there are often lines which don t make any sense because of omissions and the like The Folgers books have done an amazing job at patching the uneven spots where they occur and offering reasonable interpretations for awkward lines Of course such miniscule issues are a small price to pay for reading the author of the finest works in human historyWhat escapes me is why this play does not have a prominent place in the canon Could it be the aforementioned textual gaps Could it be the all too tidy conclusion Could it be that none of the characters really stands out than any other After all not every play can have a Falstaff or an Iago or a Shylock or Prospero And not every play can have existentialist solilouys or supernatural elements like Hamlet or Macbeth If one is prepared to accept what is lacking in Measure for Measure one will uickly see that there is still much to find in its place
