Three Biggest Plot Events That Pretty Much Sum Up Much Ado About Nothing
Claudio slandering Hero brings the interesting part of the movie. The evil that Don John set into motion convinced many people that Hero should die. Even Hero's father Leonato wished that his daughter be dead. This reveals that Claudio and Leonato believe everything that they hear and see and will do rash things because they take it for fact.
Event Two: Claudio finds out he was deceived and rights the wrong.
After hearing the confession of the person who directly deceived Claudio, Claudio was told by Leonato to right the wrong by professing that he slandered Hero to the entire city by writing an epitaph for her. Claudio agrees and does what Leonato told him to do. This shows that Claudio is not evil like Don John. This also moves along the plot by defeating the evil that Don John set into place.
Song that Pertains to a Theme of Much Ado About Nothing--Love
Link for lyrics
This song talks about love. It tells that love can be blinding like Claudio thought he was when he was deceived. Even thought Claudio was deceived into thinking love was blinding him, love can still be blinding. Claudio jumped into love with Hero in one day and did not even think about who Hero really was. Even though she turned out to be innocent, she could have been guilty of the blemishes that she was accused of.
