Comment:        RE: SHK 12.0503 Mannerist Measure for Measure

To the extent that Mannerism represented an implied critique of a naive
empiricism and a recognition of the irreducible subjectivity within
perception, a ground-breaking essay by Lars Engle, "'Measure for
Measure' and Modernity: the Problem of the Sceptic's Authority," in the
anthology I edited, "Shakespeare and Modernity" (Routledge 2000) is
highly relevant.  Engle sees Duke Vincentio as undertaking a skeptical
inquiry at a number of different levels, in the spirit of Montaigne.

There is a book by Jean-Pierre Maquerlot that will probably be helpful:
"Shakespeare and the mannerist tradition : a reading of five problem
plays". Cambridge [England] ; New York : Cambridge University Press,
1995.
