Who says Rose's choice to marry Lacy is a display of power against the class system and patriarchy? What's interesting about this?
Amy L. Smith says she disobeys her father and disrupts class boundaries so that's why it bothers the partriarchy. Interesting because marriage, which would normally embody these ideals, is subverted. Just like the festivity!

22 of 63

Don't believe in baptisms. Similar to Puritans. Don't like greek, only hebrew. 'Levellers' i.e. want to level society. Don't believe in listening to Earthly authority. (Ironic for Anais bc he has come to get the stone.)
26 of 63
Who is the only theroist I could understand for the alchemist? What does he say?
Christopher D. Foley: The play was in the blackfriars with a privileged audience. The incoming hazard of 'other bodies' in the play, both those that will spoil the antics and those infected with plague, parodies the fact that the audience are...
27 of 63
a group of privileged individuals willing the plague to continue so that Lovewit doesn't return and spoil their fun.
28 of 63

39 of 63
How does Claudio ask Isabela to agree to Angelo's offer? How does Isabela respond?
"Sweet sister, let me live. What sin you do to save a brother's life, becomes a virtue." "You beast! O faithless coward. Wilt thou be made a man out of my vice? Is't not a kind of incest to take life from thine own sister's shame?"
40 of 63

Critics only ever seem to care about whether Isabela is virtuous or not. Her character demonstrates the effect of the patriarchy on resolutions of comedies. She is gradually changed from an articulate compassionate nun to a hysterical wife.
