New quote and Trivia Question February 14, 2012 12:00 AM | Tagged as Emma Thompson, Kenneth Branagh, Love, Much Ado About Nothing, quotes, Shakespeare Re-told

My Favorite Scene of "Much Ado About Nothing"

One of my favorite scenes in the play of Much Ado is when, after Hero has been falsely accused of being unfaithful to Claudio at their wedding ceremony and Claudio leaves along with the rest of the wedding company, there is a private moment between Beatrice and Benedick when they finally declare to each other that they are in love with each other. 

Beatrice and Benedick (Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh)

First Benedick tells her:

"I do love nothing in the world so well as you, is not that strange?" (a4s1)

Then after the “usual” playful banter with each other, Beatrice declares:

"I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest." (a4s1)

 

"Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably"

I have always thought that was the best description of someone who if madly in love with someone and that is why it is my favorite line, in my favorite part of the play!

Now, this week’s trivia question is this: 

In the play, we meet Antonio who is Hero’s uncle, and then Beatrice is her cousin.  Are Antonio and Beatrice father and daughter? 

Good luck and if you know the answer to last week’s, or this week’s trivia question email me your answers (leslie@charmedbyshakespeare.com) For each correct answer, your name will be added for a drawing to win this month’s charm. 

One more thing, the BBC remade 4 of the plays and placed them in modern times with modern language.  They are entitled Shakespeare Re-told.  They are really fun.  “Much Ado" is one of the 4 plays in the set.  I highly recommend you trying to find a copy and watch it.  It has many familiar faces in the cast.  Enjoy!

Are we going to get an answer as to whether Beatrice is Antonio's daughter or not? I think not, for various reasons, but I'd like to hear your answer one way or the other.
