Measure for Measure: The Cambridge Dover Wilson Shakespeare (Cambridge Library Collection - Shakespeare and Renaissance Drama) - Paperback

ISBN: 1108005926

Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9781108005920], Cambridge University Press, Cambridge University Press, Book, [PU: Cambridge University Press], Cambridge University Press, A dark and difficult play, Measure for Measure has been a popular play since the latter half of the 20th century for its prescient dramatisation of the issues of sexual and political hypocrisy, and the ways in which the state interferes in the private lives of its citizens. Set in Duke Vincentio's Vienna, where poverty, disease and prostitution are rife, Claudio and his fiancée Juliet are arrested for having sex before marriage, and Claudio is sentenced to death. Angelo, the Duke's deputy, who stands in for the Duke whilst he ostensibly goes off on a pilgrimage, enthusiastically endorses the sentence. In fact the Duke remains behind the scenes, watching Angelo as he falls for Claudio's sister Isabella, who comes to beg for her brother's life. Angelo is a wonderful creation, loathsome yet fascinating as he struggles with the double standards of his enforcement of draconian laws whilst lusting after the sister of the man he is prepared to execute, debating "The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?". No one is spared Shakespeare's withering look at the mores of early 17th-century life, not even the pimps and madams who try to get by in the midst of the Duke's bizarre and coercive disguises and performances. The deeply ambiguous ending of Measure for Measure confirms it as one of Shakespeare's most ambivalent and arguably despairing plays. --Jerry Brotton , 66159011, Dramatik, 66161011, Anthologien, 66162011, Britisch & Irisch, 66284011, Für Kinder, 66172011, Geschichte, 66285011, Klassisches & Frühes, 66282011, Komödie, 66169011, Kontinentaleuropa, 1331366031, Religiös, 66283011, Tragödie, 66160011, Vereinigte Staaten, 66170011, Östlich, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 273045011, Europäisch, 67931011, Geschichte & Kritik, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 68216011, Shakespeare, 68215011, Britisch, 68085011, Weltliteratur, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 67215011, Literarisch, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

Measure for Measure: The Cambridge Dover Wilson Shakespeare (Cambridge Library Collection - Shakespeare and Renaissance Drama) - Paperback

ISBN: 1108005926

[SR: 7087771], Paperback, [EAN: 9781108005920], Cambridge University Press, Cambridge University Press, Book, [PU: Cambridge University Press], Cambridge University Press, John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work is available both individually and as a set, and each contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary printed at the back. The edition, which began with The Tempest and ended with The Sonnets, put into practice the techniques and theories that had evolved under the 'New Bibliography'. Remarkably by today's standards, although it took the best part of half a century to produce, the New Shakespeare involved only a small band of editors besides Dover Wilson himself. As the volumes took shape, many of Dover Wilson's textual methods acquired general acceptance and became an established part of later editorial practice, for example in the Arden and New Cambridge Shakespeares., 10159286011, Shakespeare, 2159, Dramas & Plays, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159367011, British & Irish, 271602011, European, 10159358011, Regional & Cultural, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10016, British & Irish, 10088, Contemporary, 2162, Dramas & Plays, 10090, Historical, 9805, Horror, 16004661, Humor & Satire, 10159404011, Literature, 10096, Poetry, 10183895011, Shakespeare, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10132, Literary, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491408, English Literature, 468236, Literature, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
