Stereotypes and Normbreakers: A Study on the Portrayal of Gender in William Shakespeare´s Much Ado About Nothing
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).

Abstract [en]
This essay analyzes the play Much Ado About Nothing in order to find out how it depicts men and women, with the focus on women. Are all the men and women in the play pictured in a traditional way, with vulnerable and dependent females and strong and independent males, or are there any characters in the play that are portrayed in a different way? Although the play is mainly wrapped around everything that happens to Hero and Claudio, it is Benedick and Beatrice that stand as the most interesting characters when it comes to the way Shakespeare pictures men and women. Therefore, the focus of this analysis is on Benedick and Beatrice.
