About This Book

Classic Books Library presents this new beautiful edition of William Shakespeare's play, "Measure for Measure". Featuring a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare, it is a must for Shakespeare enthusiasts and newcomers alike. This story's main themes are the conflicts between corruption and virtue, hypocrisy and justice. The Duke of Vienna leaves to resolve the town's troubles disguised as a friar. Left in charge, his trusted deputy Angelo reinstates the criminalising of sex before marriage, condemning Claudio, who has impregnated the girl he intends to marry, to death. When Claudio's sister, Isabella, a novice nun, asks Angelo to spare her brother, he propositions her, revealing his true nature. Though she refuses, the characters are swept into a world of trickery, secrets and disguise. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, poet, and actor. He is considered to be the greatest writer in the English language and is celebrated as the world's most famous dramatist.
