About the Book:

A novice nun learns that her brother is to be executed for getting his fiancée pregnant. She pleads for his life with the moralistic deputy governing for the absent duke, but is forced to yield her virginity unless she can find a way to outsmart him, in William Shakespeare's study of political and sexual hypocrisy. Like every other play in the Cambridge School Shakespeare series, Measure for Measure has been specially prepared to help all students in schools and colleges.

This version of Measure for Measure aims to be different from other editions of the play. It invites you to bring the play to life in your classroom through enjoyable activities that will help increase your understanding. You are encouraged to make up your own mind about the play, rather than have someone else's interpretation handed down to you. Whatever you do, remember that Shakespeare wrote his plays to be acted, watched and enjoyed.
An active approach to Shakespeare in the classroom, the Cambridge School Shakespeare series arises out of the research and development work of the ground-breaking Shakespeare and Schools Project. Each play in the series has been carefully edited to enable students to inhabit Shakespeare's imaginative world in accessible and creative ways.
