Prisoners (male, female, and unborn), along with the chaplains, magistrates, and executioners who tend to their souls and administer their fates, are among the characters who pass through the prison of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure.  Come learn with us about bondage and freedom, justice and mercy, and life and death in Shakespeare's dark comedy  in this online talk by Chelsea Lee, New Swan Summer Fellow.
