This comedy deals with very sensitive issues like justice and corruption in society. Pompey, a masterpiece character of Shakespeare describes Claudio’s crime as “Groping for trouts in a peculiar river” and causes imprisonment of Claudio. Angelo, the newly appointed ruler (as Duke was out of town) imposes a law that fornication is punishable with death. Claudio is thus sentenced to death because of his relationship with Juliet. Isabella begs mercy for her brother but Antonio demands something very immoral for Claudio’s release. Isabella’s fight for justice is both inspiring and amusing!
