The duke’s inclination

Happy Halloween!

I don’t have much of a discussion for today (hey! you got an infographic … don’t be greedy), but just a quick Measure for Measure question:

Did the fruke’s response to Lucio’s statement that the duke “had some feeling of the sport, he knew the service (of prostitution)” (III.ii.113-4) strike anyone as odd?

Don’t remember the response?

I never heard the absent duke much detected for women. He was not inclined that way.
  • III.ii.115-6

Was the duke gay?

Comment?
