    Summary

    “Haste still pays haste, and leisure answers leisure; like doth quit like, and measure still for measure.”

    Shakespeare’s play leaves us with several unresolved conflicts, such as Vincentio proposing marriage to Isabella (does she accept it or not?), Claudio dealing with the aftermath of his near-death experience, Angelo losing his title, etc. We, as readers, may well be prone to questioning precisely what the outcomes are. This work is our take on each of the conflicts.

    Summary

    "What's this, what's this? Is this her fault or mine?
    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?
    Ha!
    Not she: nor doth she tempt: but it is I
    That, lying by the violet in the sun,
    Do as the carrion does, not as the flower,
    Corrupt with virtuous season. Can it be
    That modesty may more betray our sense
    Than woman's lightness? Having waste ground enough,
    Shall we desire to raze the sanctuary
    And pitch our evils there? O, fie, fie, fie!
    What dost thou, or what art thou, Angelo?
    Dost thou desire her foully for those things
    That make her good?"

    II.ii
    All powerful, Angelo cracks down on the debauchery in Vienna. He is unmovable in his merciless decrees until a novice nun comes to plead for her brother's life and desires long thought dead in Angelo surface.

    Summary

    Isabella had always felt Mary's presence in her life. Had always looked forward to a life of contemplation with other women. The Duke's proposal felt less like an offer and more like a lead weight in the hands of a drowning woman. There were so many reasons to say yes. It felt selfish to say no.
