This limits women to find the confidence to stand up for their beliefs. As Claudio falsely degrades Hero’s character, Hero accepts these accusations voluntarily and remains silent about the issue. Claudio stands up in public and proceeds to call Hero slanderous names such as, “thou pure impiety and impious purity” (IV.i.109). Hero again does not object, though she falls due to complete shock. Once her father hears these accusations, he commands to “let her die” as a result of the crimes she committed (IV.i.163).
Shakespeare highlighted the implications of having such a diverse meaning attached to an element as simple as honor. Essentially, women were meant protect the honor which they were born with, is to protect their chaste, while men were branded by a different form of ‘honor’ that involved celebrating achievements and displaying courage. The characters in the play reveal the significance of their personal honor in a patriarchal structured society and how honor could influences their decisions even though they are right or wrong.
His plans to interfere in the relationship between Claudio and Hero led to devastating results and of course the embarrassing weeding ceremony. Another point turning deception is Hero’s death. If it was not for this deception her virtue would not be restored and wouldn’t be reunited with Claudio. Also we might question the necessity of some of the deception in the play like the conversation between Don Pedro and Beatrice at the ball. In my opinion deception in this play creates mixed messages and it is up to the characters as well the audience what to consider of those mixed and sometimes confusing messages.
An example of this is seen at the beginning of the play, when Margaret, Hero, and Ursula plan to gossip about Benedick, and Hero directs Margaret to fool Beatrice, “Whisper her ear and tell her I and Ursula/ Walk in the orchard…”(III.I.65-70), instead of doing it herself. This scene shows how Hero hides behind others and is not able to independently carry out her plans. Shakespeare develops Hero’s character by showing what she does not say or do, which effectively
Instead, he humiliated Hero at their wedding. In Act IV, Scene I, the harsh events that followed Hero`s humiliation were all because of Claudio`s unintelligent choice to believe Don John, the obvious villain. In Claudio`s defense, he might have been drunk while Don John was deceiving him. However, this is no excuse for his false accusation of
Puck, a fairy, turned Bottom’s head into an ass’s head because Oberon, the fairy king, wanted his wife, Titania, to fall in love with something ugly. In my opinion, this is the best example of dramatic irony because it is exciting. This is also my favorite example. Wilkins 2 Another example of dramatic irony is when both, Lysander and Demetrius, fell in love with Helena. At first, Helena has been in love with Demetrius, but he was in love with Hermia.
Claudio begins the play obsessed with appearances. He’s smitten by Hero’s beauty alone. He says in Act 1, Scene 1, “In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that ever I looked on.” When Don Pedro says he will woo her in disguise so that Claudio can have her, Claudio is told by Don John “The Bastard” that they are in love, sees them dancing, and believes it. Claudio simply looks at the visuals and takes them at face value. Claudio’s worst offense is when Don John and Borachio play their trick on Hero, making it seem like she was engaging in pre-marital sex.
