Much Ado About Nothing
Much Ado About Nothing chronicles two pairs of lovers: Benedick and Beatrice, and Claudio and Hero. At the start of the play, Benedick and Beatrice are engaged in a "merry war"; they are both very witty and proclaim their disdain of love and for one another. In contrast, Claudio and Hero are a sweet young couple who are rendered practically speechless by their love. Although the young lovers Hero and Claudio provide much of the impetus for the plot, the courtship between the wittier, wiser lovers Benedick and Beatrice is what makes Much Ado About Nothing so memorable. Benedick and Beatrice banter with delightful repartee, and Shakespeare develops their journey from antagonism to sincere love and affection with psychological subtlety and a rich sense of humor and compassion.
