Much Ado About Nothing Social Changes

Decent Essays
There are several ways in which an author can show favor toward some sort of social change, and Shakespeare seems to advocate a social change in one of his plays, Much Ado About Nothing. While he does seem to agree that the original way of marriage works, Shakespeare seems to favor the idea that the decision of whether on not to wed should belong to the man and woman who want to get married and not to the man and the father of the woman. In order to showcase this idea, Shakespeare uses heavy contrast between the two main couples. In Shakespeare’s play Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare uses Claudio and Hero to showcase the original ways of marriage and uses Benedick and Beatrice in order to show and untraditional way of love and marriage.
