When they find out that Hero is right with her story the friar has to come up with an idea on how to get her back with Claudio. The plan is that Hero killed herself and she has a cousin who is almost identical as Hero(which is truly Hero) which Claudio will marry cause he feels so bad about his love. So Hero and Claudio end up happily together. This play is a great example of a relationship where best friends date two woman who are close and something bad is bound to happen. But in "Much Ado About Nothing", William Shakespeare ends it with a two couple wedding which is usually in his plays.
At the beginning, Claudio simply wishes to marry Hero based on her beauty, with the thought of wealth and power thrown in on the side. He has not acknowledged the fact that Hero is a person aside from her beauty and position. At the end, Hero perhaps sees Claudio's inner beauty as well throughout all the turmoil. Beatrice and Benedick, though always subconsciously aware of each other's inner beauty, are made aware in a concrete sense when the end comes upon them. They began to understand the game they have been playing and see each other for who they are and as a result love each other even more.
When Romeo talks to Friar Laurence he explains “‘Then plainly know my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet’ As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage. When, and where, and how We met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow, I’ll tell thee as we pass;but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today, (Shakespeare 2.3.1030).”’Romeo is making rushed decisions upon his relationship Juliet when he wasn’t know her for along time, and doesn’t even know if his feelings are real for Juliet. Romeo is j... ... middle of paper ... ...ghts Mercutio Romeo comes in and tries to intervene in the two. When Romeo tries to interrupt the two Tybalt responds with“‘ Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford No better term than this; thou art a villain, (Shakespeare 3.1.1046).”’ Tybalt is explaining is hate for Romeo by calling him a villain, but yet the situation is ironic because Romeo is explaining his love for him and how they shouldn’t fight. Shakespeare has created emotional character’s that contrast with the other characters strengths and their flaws.
To her, it is dreadful that her first love is her only foe. Love is trust, honesty, respect, and the strong connection between two individuals. Juliet only exchanged a few words with Romeo and supposedly fell in love. I personally find this hard to believe since I don’t believe in love at first sight, it is simply impossible. Juliet has the same immature viewpoints on love, which is why both her and Romeo fall in love so quickly.
This is proven in Act Two when Beatrice says ‘Indeed, my lord, he lent it me awhile; and I gave him use for it, a double heart... ... middle of paper ... ... brother hath a daughter’. Leonato proposes that Claudio marries Antonio’s daughter as a way of redeeming himself, although it is Hero that will marry him. At the wedding the women come out wearing masks to hide their identities, believing that he is about to wed Antonio’s daughter, Claudio asks ‘Sweet, let me see your face’. This is a great scene because it builds up excitement within the audience, as they know that Hero will be the one to marry him instead. When Hero unmasks, Claudio is overjoyed to witness ‘another Hero!’ In ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ deception is used tactfully to manipulate the thoughts of nearly every character.
This highlights the fact that there is little if no communication between the couple before they decide to marry. Both Hero and Claudio are apprehensive, Hero a virtuous female who would not approach Claudio and he is anxious in wooing for himself. To a modern audience Claudio's love for Hero may seem immature and spontaneous, 'my liking may too sudden seem' as even Claudio admits. His love for Hero seems to be based purely on looks, 'in mine eye she is the sweetest lad... ... middle of paper ... ...each other, 'here's our own hands against our hearts'. Through their hands they have proclaimed their love by the action of writing a poem, this is proof that they mean what they say.
Once you get to know and accept someone for who they really are, that is true love. Romeo and Juliet fell in “love” without even knowing each other; could you really say it was actual love? Shakespeare wrote, “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (1: 5: 51-52). Romeo believes that Juliet is the first person he has ever loved before, but he only thinks he loves her because she is so pleasing to his eyes.
Benedick and Beatrice are similar to Odysseus and Penelope because they are equals in wit. Practically the entire play demonstrates their wits brings the struggle they create for each other alive. However, one special moment that they share where their wits are used in harmony comes after Hero’s almost-wedding, and public disgrace. Benedick goes to comfort Beatrice, and confides, “I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?” (Shakespeare, pg.
The two scenes are theatrically similar, and they both offer phenomenal opportunities for a creative director. In Act 2 Scene 1 Don Pedro is discussing marriage with Beatrice; we already have learnt at this point that both Benedick and Beatrice are contemptuous of love, although it is obvious from the moment Beatrice walks on stage that secretly she does want a husband. It becomes known that Beatrice's forte is covering her inner feelings. Beatrice turns down Don Pedro's mockable marriage proposal, and so he promises to find her a husband "Lady Beatrice, I will get you one", Hero also wants to help and although Beatrice protests the game begins. The two scenes both have the same purpose and involve a lot of deceit, in the first Leonato, Don Pedro, Claudio and Balthasar are tricking Benedick into believing that Beatrice loves him; and in the second Hero and Ursula are tricking Beatrice into believe Benedick... ... middle of paper ... ...not really described at all.
Second she justifies his features as him just being a eunuch, but never really addresses the issue that she is in love with a eunuch who of course would never be able to sexually please her or give her children. Whether "Cesario" is really a woman or if he is a eunuch, the love that Olivia has is futile and unrealistic. When Sebastian, Viola's brother, encounters Olivia for the first time, she believes that this is "Cesario" and gains the courage to ask for his hand in marriage. Once again this is evidence of how blinded by love Olivia is, she believes that Sebastian is the person she is in love with when really he is a stranger and she disregards his comments about not knowing her.
