Much Ado About Nothing

There is no measure in the occasion that breeds; therefore the sadness is without limit. I wonder that thou, being, as thou sayest thou art, born under Saturn, goest about to apply a moral I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in his grace, and it better fits my blood to be I make all use of it, for I use it only. Who comes here? Will it serve for any model to build mischief on?

The antagonist in this play is Don John, the bastard brother of Don Pedro. In this paper I will discuss the role of Don John as well as his motives and the character himself. I will also delve into Shakespeare's use of Don John as the antagonist. I will be comparing Don John to other characters in the play as well as to other. In this play there is a thin line between it being a comedy and a tragedy, the only thing that stops this play being a tragedy is the happy ending and the fact that no one really dies. Throughout the play there are a series of upsets within the relationships between characters.

It was adapted for the screen and directed by Kenneth Branagh , who also stars in the film. The film was released on May 7, , reaching U. It was also entered into the Cannes Film Festival. Having just crushed an uprising by his half-brother, Don John, Don Pedro of Aragon and his noblemen visit their friend Leonato in Messina. Accompanying Don Pedro is the witty Benedick, former lover of Leonato's equally sharp-tongued niece, Beatrice. Also present are Benedick's friend Claudio, a young count; and Don John who, despite his rebellion, has apparently reconciled with his brother. Claudio has been thinking of Leonato's beautiful daughter Hero since before he went to war, and returns to find her as attractive as ever.
