Biographie de l'auteur

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter, Susanna, and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He had a successful career in London as a playwright and actor and was a shareholder in the acting company the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as the King’s Men. He produced most of his plays between 1589 and 1613. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Poche .

This is an excellent synthetic book, which I highly recommend for teaching Measure for Measure. It is short, but to the point.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Base Look at Love, Honor, Morality, Reputation, and the Law! 26 septembre 2001
Par Donald Mitchell - Publié sur
Measure for Measure is seldom read, and not often performed in the United States. Why? Although many of Shakespeare's plays deal bluntly with sexual issues, Measure for Measure does so in an unusually ugly and disgusting way for Shakespeare. This play is probably best suited for adults, as a result.
I see Measure for Measure as closest to The Merchant of Venice in its themes. Of the two plays, I prefer Measure for Measure for its unremitting look at the arbitrariness of laws, public hypocrisy and private venality, support for virtue, and encouragement of tempering public justice with common sense and mercy.
The play opens with Duke Vincentio turning over his authority to his deputy, Angelo. But while the duke says he is leaving for Poland, he in fact remains in Vienna posing as a friar. Angelo begins meting out justice according to the letter of the law. His first act is to condemn Claudio to death for impregnating Juliet. The two are willing to marry, but Angelo is not interested in finding a solution. In despair, Claudio gets word to his sister, the beautiful Isabella, that he is to be executed and prays that she will beg for mercy. Despite knowing that Isabella is a virgin novice who is about to take her vows, Angelo cruelly offers to release Claudio of Isabella will make herself sexually available to Angelo. The Duke works his influence behind the scenes to help create justice.
Although this play is a "comedy" in Shakespearean terms, the tension throughout is much more like a tragedy. In fact, there are powerful scenes where Shakespeare draws on foolish servants of the law to make his points clear. These serve a similar role of lessening the darkness to that of the gravediggers in Hamlet.
One of the things I like best about Measure for Measure is that the resolution is kept hidden better than in most of the comedies. As a result, the heavy and rising tension is only relieved right at the end. The relief you will feel at the end of act five will be very great, if you are like me.
After you read this play, I suggest that you compare Isabella and Portia. Why did Shakespeare choose two such strong women to be placed at the center of establishing justice? Could it have anything to do with wanting to establish the rightness of the heart? If you think so, reflect that both Isabella and Portia are tough in demanding that what is right be done. After you finish thinking about those two characters, you may also enjoy comparing King Lear and Claudio. What was their fault? What was their salvation? Why? What point is Shakespeare making? Finally, think about Angelo. Is he the norm or the exception in society? What makes someone act like Angelo does here? What is a person naturally going to do in his situation?
Look for fairness in all that you say and do!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Footnotes and Line Numbers 3 octobre 2007
Par C. B. Brenny - Publié sur
I was very satisfied with this version of William Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure." As far as Shakespeare goes, different editions of the plays can be drastically different, not generally in actual Shakespearian context, but in the quality and quantity of footnotes and helpful information. Throughout this book the footnotes are on the left-hand page while the actual play is on the right-hand page. There are also scene summaries in the footnotes at the beginning of each scene, which I found very helpful in understanding. There are also longer notes on some topics at the back of the book. As far as the footnotes go, I have been very satisfied with the amount of information and the layout of the book. My one complaint is that I purchased this book for a class and everyone else is using a different edition and for some reason the line numbers are different in my book from the ones that they are using. Mine are always higher, so I'm assuming I have some additional lines that were edited out in their version, but it causes some problems and I wonder which version is more widely accepted. Either way, I'm very satisfied with this edition and all the supplementary information it provides.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the Later and more "serious" comedies 2 décembre 2009
Par R. J. Marsella - Publié sur
Measure for Measure was reportedly written just before King Lear and while typically identified as a comedy it has some elements in common with Lear, most notably the Duke's voluntary abdication of power that sets the play in motion. The theme of hypocrisy is explored through the character of Angelo who on assuming power begins to enforce long dormant laws that he himself cannot ultimately comply with. I once saw an RSC production of this in which the Duke was played to great effect as a tragi-comic figure who was incredibly longwinded and self-absorbed in the opening act. This completely changed the way I read this play, and reinforced for me the important difference that good direction and interpretation on stage can make when dealing with Shakespeare.

This play is the work of a mature and self-confident Shakespeare at the height of his powers and is well worth the effort. There are so many memorable lines that my copy is marked up and underlined on every other page.

As for the edition- The Folger Library paperbacks are wonderful. The facing pages have notes and interpretations of obscure phrasing that are very useful allowing for easy reference without interrupting the flow of the play.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Measure for Measure--A Must Read 20 juillet 2005
Par C. Mateo - Publié sur
This is an uncommonly read play within academic circles. Yet, it is a genius of a play. Shakespeare creates three-dimensional characters who perpetually play pi comically balancing God's purpose for man and man's own mad-made measures on morality.
