Read Shakespeare in all its brilliance--and understand what every word means! Don't be intimidated by Shakespeare! These popular guides make the Bard's plays accessible and enjoyable. Each No Fear guide contains the complete text of the original play along with a line-by-line translation, a complete list of characters, and plenty of helpful commentary. This dark comedy, set in Verona, explores virtue and sin. Claudio has been arrested for getting his mistress pregnant--and Angelo, the strict, morality-spouting judge, has sentenced him to death. When Claudio's sister Isabella, a novice nun, begs Angelo to show mercy, he is instantly smitten . . . and offers Isabella a choice: her virginity for her brother's life.
