Содержание:

Preface, Measure for Measure

Описание:

When Claudio breaks the new laws against vice in Vienna by getting his fiancee, Julietta, pregnant, a series of ethical issues is brought under scrutiny. His sister`s virtue is held to ransom by the deputy ruler of the city until justice is done, mercy shown, and order restored. This is among Shakespeare`s most vivid dramatic projections of moral duplicity. The introduction discusses the origins of his treatment of the well-known story and examines his sources. The editor also sets the play inits historical context and offers the most comprehensive available account of the text`s theatrical life from Restoration adaptations to present-day productions.
