due to its dual use). Though that is quit a stray from the notion at the end that she would marry the Duke. Isabella is seen as a good holy women, but Shakespeare also begins to make her out to be a disliked character, going from virtuous and chaste to moral ambiguity,allowing Mariana to do exactly what she was so unwilling too. Which bring us to the next female in this play, Mariana. Though she is not at all a main character she is a key character in developing the plot. She is used to trick Lord Angelo, though she does love him she is giving up a valued trait. And last, as the spectrum in Shakespeare’s opinion seems to get worse, there is Juliet. As far as we know, Juliet is an unmarried pregnant women, though she is willing and wanting to marry Claudio it is the fact that they are not yet married that makes this a crime and her a sinful women. So in summary in this play, wehave the roles of a nun, and two unchaste women, one of which is pregnant out of wedlock.The next piece of work is Much Ado About Nothing,there are more female characters in this piece of work however we will once again look at three different roles played to compare to the previous three. For example, Hero is the well-respected chaste daughter of a noble man, a character really not seen in the previous, she is open and even some what looking for love. Almost the opposite personality as her boisterous cousin, Beatrice, whom is remembered as the one female you see speaking out and talking back to the males. Another role she seems to fill is the female who is uninterested in love or marriage, as Isabella was before, both of which end up “happily” married at the end of the plays.
