    Angelo in Measure for Measure       Within Measure for Measure, the character of Angelo can be seen as a case study of will over moral nature.

    “Lil?” Angela called, setting the groceries down on the kitchen counter. The television was on and playing an old episode of Twin Peaks, Lillian’s favorite show. Lillian, however, wasn’t in there watching it. Angela put the small amount of groceries away before calling out again. “Lillian! I’m home!” Her voice echoed through the house and empty halls.

    my apartment, or meeting, Angelo. “Walk to the edge,” Angelo commands. “Go on, walk to the edge.” I'm released from his gaze as he steps out of my view, giving me the opportunity to survey my surroundings. At the water's edge, boats bob over waves that grow stronger, crashing against the wall and soaking the ground. A few buildings kiss the skyline, too far for anyone to capture a glimpse of us.
