MUCH ADO BENEDICK AND BEATRICE

View mindmap
  • RELATION-SHIP BETWEEN BENEDICK AND BEATRICE
    • Act 1 Scene 1
      • 'Battle of wits'
        • "Are you yet living?"
          • Almost spit at her, seething disgust
      • "Scratching could not make it worse... 'twere such a face as yours"
        • Upright posture, looking directly at Benedick to convey her squaring-up
        • "I would rather have a bird of my tongue than a beast of yours"
          • Hint of a smirk, merciless teasing not entirely malicious
    • Act 4 Scene 1
      • "I do love nothing in the world so well as you"
        • Look at the ground to show shyness
      • "I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest"
        • Place one hand on her heart and one on his, spiritual and physical connection
    • Initially both sick of love, independent and witty
    • Context
      • Beatrice is anything but subserviant
      • Men wouldn't normally put their heart on their sleeve
