Further Ado About the Characters

Continuing My reading of Much Ado About Nothing. We’re at the part where the guys are tricking Benedick into thinking Beatrice loves him and the women are doing the same to Beatrice about Benedick.

So far my opinions on the characters are as follows:

Beatrice & Benedick: proud and stubbornly stuck in the strong independent roles they’ve set themselves, neither willing to lose face.

Don Pedro: arrogant; believes in his own superiority and that others should follow his lead.

Claudio: fickle; easily lead.

Don John: inept villain; has no plans of his own just wants to cause trouble in any way he can.

Hero: dutiful daughter, potentially resentful of Beatrice’s quick wit.
