Subject:        Isabella's Role in Measure for Measure

I am writing a reduced text of Measure for Measure for my Shakespeare
class at Bethel College. I want my text to focus on how Isabella's
virtue remains intact, despite being constantly attacked throughout the
play.  The goal is to create a feeling of sympathy for Isabella, as well
as admiration. These emotions are much more difficult to feel when
watching or reading the entire play.

I am writing because I am interested in hearing opinions on this
approach that I am taking. I would also like to hear others'
interpretations of Isabella's role in the play.
