10452 Measure for Measure: A Shakespeare Play for Our Times - LATE START DATE - New   NEW!

A man uses his power and position to take advantage of a young woman. It sounds like a #MeToo moment, but then Shakespeare has always been relevant. In the promiscuous world of Vienna, the straight-laced Angelo is put in charge of reviving strict laws about sexual conduct. He plans to make an example of young Claudio for impregnating his girlfriend out of wedlock by sentencing him to death. When Claudio’s virtuous sister, Isabella, pleads for his life, Angelo offers to spare him–in exchange for her virginity. Shakespeare’s masterful play “weaves between the moral posts of lust, mercy, and justice.” Students will be expected to read the play on their own (“No Fear Shakespeare” offers online side-by-side texts pairing Shakespeare’s original language with a modern version). Class time will be spent analyzing key scenes and themes, as well as viewing an excellent BBC production.
