Much Ado About Nothing

A Play in Which Language is a Key Focus

In this coursework I will be analysing the play 'Much Ado About Nothing' written by Arden Shakespeare. This addition is edited by A.R Humphreys, which was written in 1958. 'Much Ado About Nothing' is a comedy from Shakespeare's collection.

In 'Much Ado About Nothing', Shakespeare uses comedy and a touch of tragedy to send a message of deceit and noting as a key issue. The content of the play basically underlines the story of Claudio's engagement of Hero, which is ruined by Don Pedro's intervention and plotting. This then becomes more complicated when Hero fakes her death. Simultaneously another subplot is seen through Benedick and Beatrice, as they begin to fall in love regardless of their frequent battles of wit despite the hatred they have for each other. Both plots combine which leads into an affair of honour between Benedick and Claudio. Additionally there are two facetious local constables, Dogberry and Verges who try to expose the scheming of Don John and Borachio.

The core part of my essay will discuss language and how Shakespeare uses different types of language
