Measure for Measure (Oxford School Shakespeare)

Measure for Measure - William Shakespeare

[book:Measure for Measure|1936587|] is about Angelo, who is put temporarily in charge by the Duke of Vienna, and Claudio who has gotten his "wife" pregnant. Because the church banns were not published, Angelo has Claudio arrested and sentenced to Death for fornication. Claudio requests that his sister, who is a novice, come and plead for him. She does so and we see how much Angelo has let power go to his head. He seems to think that he is above the law.The play reminded me, in many ways, of the parable of the unforgiving servant in the Bible. I really liked thinking of the comparisons and really enjoyed this play.
