Of all Shakespeare's plays, Measure for Measure is the one in which the dramatization of Christian doctrine and the motions of divine providence are most prominent. It is actually unusual for Shakespeare to take his own title quite so seriously. The Geneva Bible included interpretative glosses in its margins. That could as well be an instant character sketch of Angelo. He is more than once described as "precise," a term applied to no other character in Shakespeare.

Measure for Measure is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1603 or 1604 and originally published in 1623. Generally considered one of Shakespeare's problem plays, the work examines the ideas of sin and justice. Duke Vincentio turns Vienna's rule over to the corrupt Angelo, who sentences Claudio to death for having impregnated a woman before marriage. His sister Isabella, a novice nun, pleads for her brother's life, only to be told that he will be spared if she agrees to relinquish her virginity to Angelo.

So, perhaps, we can re-write PKD's quote (at least remeasure it to read: It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to get sloppy-ass drunk").
