Beatrice and Benedick

  • John Palmer


There is much ado in this comedy about innocent Hero slandered by her lover Claudio, led to believe by a villain, with no motive for his villainy, that she comes as no maid to her marriage. And all this, the author warns us in his title, is nothing; we are not to take seriously to heart any of that dreadful business at the altar steps but to regard the splenetic Don John as no more than a black bogey in a merry tale.
