However, Claudio has as much blame as Don John for falling under the influence of the obvious villain and trickster. In acknowledging this, Claudio is the real cause of this catastrophe. Don John, the villainous brother of Don Pedro, contributed to the unfortunate event in Claudio`s almost wedding. Don John is showed devising a plan to wreak Claudio`s wedding in Act II, scene ii. Don John expresses “Any bar, any cross, any impediment will be med'cinable to me.” This meaning that any barrier or obstacle to Claudio`s happiness is like medicine to him.
They deceit Benedick by making him think that she likes him too, but she doesn’t express her love just because she is certain that he doesn’t like her back. They make this complot in the garden while Benedick was overhearing them but they continue talking as he was not, even though they know the he could hear them. In this way Benedick is persuaded by Don Pedro and Claudio that Beatrice likes him back so he must talk to her. This is a clear example of deception used to set two people together. In this case I believe that deception is justified and in a way positive because is done in order to spread love.
The play “Much Ado About Nothing” by William Shakespeare is a comedy that tells the tale of two pairs of lovers: Hero and Claudio, and Beatrice and Benedict. Though the main plot of the story revolves around Hero and Claudio, Benedict and Beatrice’s romantic relationship is an important subplot to the story. In “Much Ado About Nothing”, Shakespeare uses irony, hyperbole, and use of language to illustrate Benedict and Beatrice as a nontraditional spin on the ideal couple through the strength and security of their love, as can be shown in dialogue not traditionally associated with love. The love story of Beatrice and Benedict, though the irony of how it was founded makes it non-traditional, has real feelings behind it, making them an ideal
Leonato also implies that Claudio shouldn’t fight him because he has already wronged him and, to murder him would be overkill. Antonio, having been primed in the conversation before with Leonato, only adds validity to the claim that Leonato tries to make, Claudio murdered Hero unjustly. In Leonato's closing remarks to Claudio, Leonato states, “say thou hast belied mine innocent child. / Thy slander hath gone through and through her heart, / And she lies buried with her ancestors, / Oh, in a tomb where never scandal slept Save this of hers, framed by thy villainy” (5.83.67-71). Once again Leonato tries to make Claudio show any sign of guilt over having killed Hero.
William Shakespeare used love and humor to connect to his readers while writing his classic tragedies and comedies. Two of his classic plays Romeo and Juliet, and Much Ado About Nothing, are very alike, yet very different. The characters Mercutio, from Romeo and Juliet, and Benedick, from Much Ado About Nothing, have many similarities and many differences. Shakespeare is known as one of the best tragedy writers along with one of the best comedy writers ever. One of his best known tragedies is Romeo and Juliet; likewise, one of his best known comedies is Much Ado About Nothing.
He didn’t like the way they were going to give him a bad name if he confessed. John Proctors reaction to what was going to happen was, “Because it’s my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies! Because I’m not worth the dust on my feet of them that hang!
The story of Hero and Claudio, a classic love tale with interruptions from Don John. Also, of Beatrice and Benedick, who fight with each other to hide their true feelings. In the first act, Don Pedro drops in on the local governor who is Leonato. Claudio and Benedick, two young gentlemen, are with the governor. Beatrice and Benedick are fighting intensely.
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.
Benedick: a “self proclaimed bachelor”, speaks about his dramatically transformed attitude towards women, love, and marriage Falling in Love is Uncontrollable It hasn’t been a long time since Benedick, Beatrice’s male counterpart, was fond of criticizing women and enjoyed ‘skirmishes of wit’ as a brave soldier. Benedick, wearing a suit and a bowtie, enters the coffee shop in a fashionable manner. I was shocked by his debonair look; only having been married for a month, his style definitely changed. His hair glistened with wax, and his white beard was trimmed neatly. His big blue eyes were so mesmerizing that it could captivate anyone for even the slightest of the moment.
In the beginning of the play, Benedick, enjoying the life of a bachelor, swore against marriage. However, Shakespeare creates a dilemma that forces Benedick to make an unchangeable decision between his longtime friend, Claudio, and the love of his life, Beatrice. Driven into a corner, Benedick chose to follow the will of Beatrice rather than Claudio, the exact opposite of what he would have done at the start of the play. Shakespeare makes Benedick contemplate his options and consider whether his love for Beatrice is more valuable than his friendship with Claudio. From the moment of his introduction, Benedick was the man who would never fall in love, refusing to participate in the foolish activities of lovers that could cloud the mind from logic.
