What do you find interesting about Shakespeare's presentation of deception in 'Much Ado About Nothing'?
Claudio professes his love for Hero - 'in mine eye she is the sweetest lady...' - and Don Pedro decides to woo her for him. This deception plays a major part in introducing the theme of the play. The unexpected eagerness of Don Pedro, the highly respected Prince of Arragon, to participate in this scheme instantly presents deception as tolerable and fabricates an expectancy of further deceptive schemes; it also infers a characteristic attribute of management and organisation of other people's lives, and an authority to intervene in these lives while maintaining a degree of emotional detachment.
