Subject: 	Measure for Measure--The Undercover Duke

"Thematically, Lucio plays a very important role, too. Is he telling the 
truth about the Duke's sexual escapades or not?"

I believe he is, it fits with the Friar's comments to the Duke at the 
beginning of the play. The Duke has been an undercover agent for quite a 
while, so it seems.

As we all know, Hardy's precious time is generously donated to this 
forum. It were mean then of Marcus Dahl to submit the following:

 >Sorry but I just had to laugh when I read GE's quote
 >that 'sexual politics' were invented in the 1970s by
 >the trade unions!
 >
 >Good one Gabriel!
 >
 >All most as funny as the fake priest in MFM...

Registering that my comments amused you doesn't help SHAKSPERians know 
why they amused you, Marcus. If I'm wrong on either point, say why. 
Otherwise you're just wasting Hardy's time.

I'm currently teaching the play to a very reluctant first year group- 
they did perk up slightly, however, when I pointed out that Claudio was 
a character guilty of nothing that the author hadn't done himself in 
real life.
