conflict with the character is the that Don John is jealous of his brother. And hates him and tries to ruin the wedding and marriage. So he makes a plane to ruin it and it works and Claudio shames hero at the altar and hero assumably died. And when she was proven innocent claudio
In Messina, as Don Pedro, the Prince of Arragon, and his officers return from a recently concluded war, a message comes to Leonato that the prince plans to visit his house for a month.

Unfortunately, Don Jon appears never to have heard of the concept as nearly every word from his mouth is a lie. Unless speaking to his faithful coconspirator Borachio, Don Jon rarely speaks an honest word to a fellow character in the play. When he initially talks to Claudio during a masquerade dance, in which Don Pedro had promised to woo Hero on behalf of Claudio, he lies. Sadly, it seems, Don Pedro has brutally betrayed Claudio by wooing Hero for himself. Of course, this report is later proved false by Don Pedro himself.
Manipulation and More Manipulation In Scene One of Act Four of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Beatrice is angered by Don Pedro and Claudio’s hasty reactions and makes the irrational decision to beg Benedick to challenge Claudio to a duel. Don Pedro and Claudio announce the lies fed to them by Don John to those attending the wedding procession, causing Hero to faint of embarrassment and despair. After the public shaming of Hero, Beatrice and Benedick have a long conversation about Beatrice’s sorrow and Hero’s shattered reputation. Beatrice begins her manipulation of Benedick: “Ah, how much might the man deserve of me that would right her!”
Shakespeare’s play Much Ado About Nothing is a dramatic comedy following the wedding catastrophe of Hero and Claudio. Who is to blame for this scheme against Hero? Some people say it is Hero’s maid, Margaret’s, fault, for she is the one who dressed up pretending to be Hero; however, in reality it was truly Don Jon’s fault, for his intentions were to cause disputes amongst the two being wedded. Don Jon is introduced as “The Bastard” of the story. This leads the readers to already assume that Don Jon is the one who is always causing trouble and getting on people’s nerves.
these plays—Much Ado about Nothing, included—feature cleverly constructed scenarios, witty dialogue and an exploration of the sexes. Like many movies do today, a comedy of manners is often written to include stock characters. A formula as such, just as one experiences when they watch a formulaic horror feature film—you know, a movie that has one or two hero types, either a guy or girl (or both) that will actually survive through the end of the movie, or the one character who seems to have inside knowledge about what’s going on and how to stop it.
While giving hints of Hero, Don John also speaks about his prove and his evidence and that he will show them, if they believe in him and follows him that night before the wedding. He then suggests to Claudio “But it would be better fit your honour to change your mind,” Don John is telling Claudio that it is a disgrace to marry such a wicked woman for such a great man, as if Don John was the good one, which pulls in Claudio’s curiosity about the reason why he should not be marrying her, shows a dramatic irony that Don John is only trying to ruin their marriage. At this point, we can clearly see that Don John is giving away information little by little and being so polite, so that he can get attention from the two, in order to keep them curious and for them to believe what he is saying. All these evil acts are mostly done because he envies his brother Don Pedro, out of anger and unhappiness, for attention, and so that he can feel more superior to his brother because he has more information than his
When you know something about someone it can make you change the way you think about them. If you don’t know it you could accidentally hurt someone you care about. The same is true for the play Romeo and Juliet. In the play Shakespeare uses dramatic irony to both drive the play forward and to present a message or theme. A few examples of these are when we know who Romeo and Juliet's parents are when they meet
Aside from the dominant repetition of those themes throughout the comedy, there is another crucial motif in this play: ‘deception’ as a “two-sided coin”. (Lawson, 2009) Richard Henze outlines in his article, ‘Deception in Much Ado about Nothing’, that, “… deception in Much Ado is of two sorts – one leads to social peace and the other breeds conflict and distrust.” Deception itself is not candidly condemned by the play – but the negatives of this attribute by far exceed the ‘truth of deception’, and effectively portrays that deception, as a whole, is a caustic thing. A clear representation of destructive deception is shown through the characterisation of Don John, “the Bastard”, who believes that “any impediment [to others] would be medicinal” to him.
Here, we would again see how Claudio does things without thinking at all. He does not realize that getting married to someone he does not even know could be disaster He was not even sure if he loved this girl and he was willing to live with this girl for the rest of his life. All he knew was that she was a copy of Hero and for him that was all that mattered. This just shows that Claudio's love for Hero is so shallow and that his attraction towards Hero is just on the physical level.
Throughout Much Ado About Nothing is looking at the negatives that is well aware in all situations, then moving into how positives can come out of the deception that is happening, finally, looking at how the book and social media are two similar deals. While the book has many misinterpretations it leads to unfortunate events that attempt to break apart characters in the play. Although many see that negatives only in such a dramatized play there is always a positive outlook on the play itself. They use negative action such as lying, deception, and misinterpretation to help bring people together, such as Benedict and Beatrice. This book all ties back well with social media.
