In Measure for Measure, Shakespeare comes closest to a city comedy of low life. It explores disturbingly sexual morality and the efficacy of human justice. Julius Caesar is a political tragedy where old Roman republican values are defeated by autocracy. The course compares these plays with Ben Jonson's Bartholomew Fair and Sejanus, which seem almost a direct reply to Shakespeare on these issues.
