At the beginning of the play, we are introduced to Hero, the daughter of the Governor of Messina, and Count Claudio, a young lord of Florence. When Count Claudio is first introduced, he is an intelligent man who loves the feeling of battle. After being introduced to Hero, however, he immediately has a liking for her and his actions are being lead by love. In the play, Count Claudio states, “In mine eye, she is the sweetest lady that ever I looked on”(1.1.183-184).
We see the best is brought out of Romeo as he is showing maternity and respect for his ‘Family.’ Overall, love is a marvelous force for good because it is everlasting through time and hardships, it brings people together, and it has the potential to bring the best out of people. Love outshines hate in ‘Romeo and Juliet’, disregarding the fact that it is labeled as a tragedy. In “Sonnet 116” true love is proven to be something that doesn't grow old or alter with us, but instead, it grows as more connections are made. The irresistible love read about in books and fairy tales and the movies we see about ‘Happily Ever Afters’, can be a dream come true after
Shakespeare incorporates dramatic irony at this specific point in the rising action as a discrete message to the audience that even those who remain super close to Romeo and Juliet are not aware of their secret romantic relationships. Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married. The importance of this irony appears because the driving antagonistic force behind the tales presents itself as the lack of hate between the two families and how the two enemies fall in love, but the idea of enemies falling in love seems so ridiculous to Romeo’s closest friends that they still believe he yearns for Rosaline. Symbolism: the use of objects or facts to represent ideas or
Capulet kept the feud between the two families because he felt too proud of himself and his achievements. This ongoing feud made it impossible for Juliet to tell Mr. Capulet that she was already married, and to a Montague. “My sword, I say! Old Montague is come, And flourishes his blade in spite of me.” Mr. Capulet hears of a brawl in the streets of Verona and he automatically draws his weapon just because it’s against the Montagues.
Within Much Ado About Nothing, the two plots: the romance between Claudio and Hero and the tough spots between Benedick and Beatrice. The use of prose not only exemplified the playful nature between Benedick and Beatrice, but also proved that they really did have a genuine love. They finally speak in verse when they admit their love, switching to the more serious tone proves that they were done fooling around, and they wreally meant it when they said they loved each other. Beatrice breaks the mold of a typical woman’s role is in Shakespeare’s plays.
“She did deceive her father, marrying you, And when she seemed to shake and fear your looks, She loved them most. ”(3,3,211-213) Iago talks down about Desdemona for not following her father’s commands. Therefore Iago uses that as a reason for Othello to not completely trust Desdemona. “Be as your fancies teach you.
Despite Emilia’s thoughts about her husband Iago, she is an obedient wife to him. Readers can imply that Iago does not see his wife or any woman as a person in society by the way he constantly mocks and disrespects his wife, never seems to offer his wife any affection, and he always talks about women in a negative way in general. Nevertheless, Emilia still wants to please her husband. Emilia says, “What he will do with [Desdemona’s handkerchief.] Heaven knows, not I. I nothing
This is something very big of Beatrice to ask him to do, since they are best friends, which is why it is crazy when Benedick promises to challenge Claudio to a duel. Beatrice has never wished to marry, and even says that she would “rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me (Shakespeare 15). Her opinions instantly change after she overhears Hero and Ursula talking in the garden, saying that Benedick is in love with Beatrice. After hearing this, Beatrice now decides she will marry and love Benedick. Her emotions towards love and how Benedick feels about her change extremely fast, which demonstrates how rough the course of love is, since Beatrice and Benedick act as though they hate each other, and then suddenly wish to marry each other within a short period of time.
For instance, in act 2 scene 1, “I wonder that you will still be talking, Signor Benedick. Nobody marks you.” , Benedick is found talking to himself by Beatrice. If we only ever read about Benedick through others, we’d never really get to know him. He would just seem like a self-righteous fool.
Benedick seemed to be so “in love” with Beatrice that he was willing to prove his love to her no matter what. Beatrice shows that she is a strong independent woman, but hates all of the boundaries set on women. With the metaphor, “O, that I were a man for his sake!” saying in context if she was a man, she would fight, something not allowed for her sex.
Are Benedick and Beatrice the Ideal Couple? Beatrice and Benedick are the ideal couple, I will be explain them in four different quotes why they are. Also, by their attitude towards love and their romance is more satisfying than Claudio and Hero’s. How they get tricked into confessing their love to each other by the help of their friends and family.
In almost every book ever written, there are characters that bring out the differences of others. Whenever the author, rather than plainly stating the characteristics, uses other characters to imply the traits of another character, it is called a character foil.

First, Beatrice is a foil for Hero because of their opposing personalities. Beatrice is hard to please and makes Benedick work for her, and even goes as far as to say, “ Use it for my love some other way than swearing”(Shakespeare 172).
Shakespeare has a way of making his plays have a whole array of themes and perspectives to see the story from. One can argue that the main theme can usually be something along the lines of Love or Deception or even Honor. In particular, looking at Much Ado About Nothing, you can apply the same. I would argue that shakespeare chose to develop the theme of deception throughout this play. In particular, the way that Beatrice and Benedick end up falling in love is all thanks to deception.
