A Bringer of New Things

I want to read and learn all I can, write thoughtfully and truthfully, live according to reason and ever more mature wisdom, and savor every wonderful little gift of life.

Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing

I recently read Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing for the first time. It portrays two pairs of would-be lovers whose friends work together to unite them (or, as we’d say, “fix them up”). A mean-hearted villain tries to ruin everything, but (this being a comedy) love and friendship finally prevail. Towards the beginning, one character speaks an ironic anti-thesis: “Friendship is constant in all other things / Save in the office of affairs of love.” The play goes on to completely disprove this statement, and show that friends are assets, not enemies, when it comes to love.
