Comment: 	RE: SHK 17.0164 Measure for Measure and a Puzzle

Carol Morley suggests to her class that "Claudio was a character guilty 
of nothing that the author hadn't done himself in real life."

That may be so when the play begins, but it is not long before Claudio 
demands that his sister be raped to save his hide. My students thought 
that was pretty interesting.
