    change in his relationship with Beatrice, as they move from 'merry war' and 'skirmish of wit' to become lovers, though Benedick does still protest that he 'love thee (Beatrice) against my will'.

    Beatrice was almost always visually seen with an ecstatic smile on her face. That was who she was; a happy child. She would greet strangers with the beaming look, which gave her the infamous nickname from her older sister- Bea. Her love and campaign for the bees had also supported Merope’s decision of calling her Bea, but it was mostly due to beaming. It wasn’t Bea’s fault, as she couldn’t help herself. She was the optimist. Though, she couldn’t avail herself, that who she was deemed to be. The

    themes that bring serenity to the chaos that encompasses most of the play. 	The first example of deception we see is with the characters of Beatrice and Benedick. These two characters provide the humor throughout Shakespeare's comedy; their repartees and soliloquies tend to leave the reader smiling and anxious for more dialogue between them. Beatrice and Benedick have had a relationship prior to their battles of wit to which she alludes to in Act 2: "Marry, once before he won it for me with
