Measure for Measure

William Shakespeare

One of William Shakespeare’s ‘problem plays’, Measure for Measure alludes to the Jacobean preoccupation with ridding London of its brothels. The play explores the darker side of human nature: hypocrisy, depravity and betrayal.

 

When Juilet finds herself pregnant by her lover Claudio ahead of their nuptials, the young man is sentenced to death by the pernicious and puritanical Angelo, who has assumed temporary control of Vienna.
