Much Ado About Nothing

By: Dana Wasielewski


The theme for Much Ado About Nothing, inspired by Shakespeare can represent many, symbols or meanings, but the most important theme is love. In the song How to Save a Life, by the Fray, it can represent love throughout the movie because it speaks about how love can be painful, by arguments, someones death and more. For example this happened when Claudio called hero a "whore"in front of there wedding day. But,towards the end of the song it talks about how love can be a healing factor after you lost someone you truly love, which can relate, since Claudio had "lost" Hero from her so called death. All in all, the theme, love, is the greatest factor throughout the play to give the movie the ultimate tragicomedy.
