Item description for Judge, Judge Not: An Illustrated Companion to Measure for Measure by Ashley E. Simcox...
The varied artistic approaches presented in this book reflect the interpretations and visions Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. Some "illustrate" literal scenes from the text; others more metaphorically interpret the central themes of the text or wrestle with the moral questions raised by the implications of judging-or not judging-the actions of another. Although a few artists engaged the densely rich humor of Measure for Measure, more focused on the darker issues raised by this problematic comedy: the role of an apparently just Duke who nonetheless deceives his subjects; the malevolent Angelo who seems never to recognize his own hypocrisy. Most were attracted by Isabella's central conflict: should she redeem her brother's life by sacrificing her own virginity?
