Esemplare commedia degli equivoci o romantica satira sull’amore e i suoi malintesi? Più che l’amara vicenda del principe d’Aragona e della sua innamorata Ero ingiustamente calunniata, in Molto rumore per nulla (1598), ambientata in un’assolata Messina, spicca la storia di Benedetto e Beatrice: brillante e misogino, il giovin signore padovano al seguito del principe esibisce a suon di motteggi e improperi il suo disprezzo per la spigliata nipote del governatore. Nonostante i continui scontri verbali, i due giovani, grazie a uno stratagemma degli amici che scommettono sul loro amore, scopriranno la segreta affinità che li lega e finiranno con l’arrendersi al sentimento. Il genio di Shakespeare si esprime qui soprattutto nelle briose schermaglie, negli scambi arguti e feroci, nelle battute vivaci e taglienti, a eterna riprova che può più la parola della spada e che la vita altro non è che un piccolo mondo di fittizie contrapposizioni che in un attimo il Caso dissolve nel nulla.

Much Ado About Nothing : a comedy, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy by William Shakespeare thought to have been written in 1598 and 1599, as Shakespeare was approaching the middle of his career. The play was included in the First Folio, published in 1623. By means Leggi tutto
I don't think Much Ado ranks with Shakespeare's very best for three reasons: 1) the plot is weak, particularly the deception that moves things along during the first act (why does Don Pedro choose to woo by proxy en masque ? What is to be gained by it except delay and confusion?), 2) Dogberry and Ver Leggi tutto
Let's face it, there aren't too many of Shakespeare's females who kick ass. Yes, we all can name the four or five that don't quite suck (Kat, Portia, Viola, Emilia, etc) but good strong feminine characters were not, it seems, the bard's strong suit. So as you wade through the whiny, conniving, helpl Leggi tutto
Hey nonny, nonny! <-- whatever that means, William. This is one that I've read before but I thought it would be cool to listen to the full cast audiobook. Definitely worth it. Just rewatched the 1993 movie, which is also worth it, but for a different reason. Keanu Reeves + Shakespeare = Unintentionally H Leggi tutto
here I am reviewing this play exactly 420 years since it came out.... it's what Beatrice and Benedick would've wanted So... the thing is. This is, in all honesty, the play that got me into Shakespeare. I saw that Kenneth Branagh / Emma Thompson movie of it when I was maybe eight years old and I loved Leggi tutto

Much Ado about Nothing , written in 1598, interweaves the story of two couples. The more interesting and definitely more amusing one is Benedick and Beatrice, who apparently have a rocky romance in their past history. But now they devote all of their energy in their interactions to insulting each othe Leggi tutto
I am probably the last person in the whole history of the world to get it, but, just in case there's someone else left, it occurred to me yesterday that the title of this play had to be a rude pun. Five minutes on Google was enough to confirm my suspicions. From this page : In Shakespeare's time "noth Leggi tutto
I saw an absolutely brilliant version of this play today at Shakespeare’s Globe in London. It was Mexican themed, full of dancing, gunshots, high racing emotions and many moments of farcical humour. All in all, it was a great production of an imperfect play. If I’m ever critical of Shakespeare’s wor Leggi tutto
