Measure for Measure

William Shakespeare

Character Analysis Claudio

A young gentleman who has gotten Juliet with child, for which crime he is sentenced to death. He appears prominently only in Act III, Scene 1, when he speaks eloquently about his fear of death. Although he is the cause of the play's action, he himself is not fully characterized. He comes to life in this scene as an intelligent and sensitive young man, only to be almost invisible throughout the remainder of the play.
