Overview

Famous actors have appeared as this play's sparring lovers, Benedick and Beatrice, from David Garrick's time in the eighteenth century to the present. Angela Stock has added a new section to the Introduction where she reviews the romantic and darker, more cynical aspects of the play in the context of late twentieth-century stage, film and critical interpretations. She also tackles the critical fortunes of Hero and Claudio as they reflect the play's concerns with sexuality and misogyny, eavesdropping and deception.

This is a really good version of Much Ado About Nothing. I got a .99 ¿ version and it had a lot of typos in it but this one is magnificent! I am only twelve but I love it immensley. I highly recommend this this thrilling shakespearian story to anyone who loves a good novel with lots of big words (i'm really glad that Nook has a built-in dictionary!) Happy reading!
