Measure for Measure is a comedy, but is also classified by modern scholars as one of Shakespeare's problem plays. Originally published in the First Folio of 1623, the play's first recorded performance was in 1604. The play deals with the issues of mercy, justice, and truth, and their relationship to pride and humility: "Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall". Illustrated by "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt
