Plot- Development: critical commentary (Act I, scene III)

The Duke now approaches a friar by the name of Thomas and seeks his permission to disguise himself as a friar and to live in the friar’s cell. The Duke explains to Friar Thomas why he wishes to assume this disguise. He tells Friar Thomas that his laxity in enforcing the laws had led to a great increase in crime and that, in order to check the growing evil, he had, for a time, transferred his powers and authority to Angelo. The Duke says that he would now like to go about in a friar’s disguise and observe how Angelo governs the country.
