One of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing is about two pairs of lovers, Benedick and Beatrice, and Claudia and Hero. The former pair enjoy verbal battles, and revel in the eloquent expression of their scorn for each other while Claudio and Hero engage in a more traditional love affair. Beatrice and Benedick are tricked into admitting their love, and Claudio is tricked into believing Hero unfaithful to him the night before their wedding. The journey to living happily ever after proves to be an arduous one for the characters, but for readers, it provides unmitigated delight and hilarity. About the Author William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language. He was born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon, and in his twenties, went to London, where he had a successful career as a playwright, poet and dramatist. He was part owner of the famous acting company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men, which later became known as The King's Men. The author of seminal works such as Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, Macbeth and Hamlet, Shakespeare wrote numerous plays and sonnets which are read and celebrated all over the world, nearly five hundred years after his death. Shakespeare died in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1616 at the age of fifty-two.
