Whiting 1 Tori Whiting Geoffrey Johns ENG 210-08 19 September 2011 Sifting through the Grey Are the answers in life really only black and white? Is there only good and bad or is there a grey area whose answers and decisions are just as legitimate as the answers that are “clear?” Acts two and three of Measure for Measure , propose this question over and over again through the actions of the characters. The characters vividly deal with the choice between right and wrong and the barrier between what is black and what is white. Isabella serves as the first example. Lucio convinces Isabella to go to Angelo and convince him to free her brother. “‘Why all the souls that were were forfeit once,/ And He that might the vantage best have took/ Found out the remedy. How would you be/ If He which is the top of judgment should/ But judge you as you are?’” (II.2.97-101). Isabella challenges Angelo’s knowledge of right and wrong just as we challenge our own knowledge of such things every day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
