Shakespeare's Measure For Measure: tragic conventions. Watch

Badges: 0
Report Thread starter 6 years ago
I have an exam IN TWO DAYS asking about the uses of tragic conventions in Measure for Measure and i'm a bit stuck. So far I have said some tragic conventions are the fact that either in relation to Angelo's proposition to Isabella, in her answer, a life has to be lost (in the form of Claudio) or the pure honest soul of Isabella must be lost. Also i thought maybe that Angelo could be seen as a tragic figure as he is a high up, noble figure, yet has one tragic flaw which brings about his downfall. What do you guys think? Any help would be great as i'm a little stuck here! Thank you in advance!
