The Summary of Measure for MeasureThis drama is classified as a comedy play
by William Shakespeare. However it is also referred to as a
'problem play', because it cannot be easily described as either a
tragedy or comedy. The story of the plot centres on Angelo who
has been empowered by the Duke of Vienna to rule his land,
whilst he wanders about disguised as a friar to investigate the
moral decay of his dukedom. Resorting to an old law against
fornication to enforce his strict standards of morality, Angelo
proceeds to condemn fornicators to death. One of these
fornicators is Claudio , a young man who has had pre-marital
sex with his fiancee. Claudio's sister Isabella pleads for her
brother's life. Angelo's lust is aroused and he uses his power to
blackmail Isabella into his bed. Fortunately the Duke
overhears. Angelo ends up in the bed of Mariana , a woman
from his undisclosed past. Claudio is allowed to live happily
ever after with his fiancee, and the virtuous Isabella ends up
the Duke of Vienna's bride.
