Subject:        Submission of a question
 
My recent reading of _Measure_For_Measure_ has continually brought me back to a
single question.  Is Isabella conscious of the sexual entreaties by Angelo and
therein use her sexuality as a woman to manipulate him, or is she too pure and
naive to understand that Angelo wants her to tempt him?  I have heard of
productions that have represented her in both ways, but which has the most
textual evidence?
