Shakespeare’s Anatomy of Love: Much Ado About Nothing

A recording of this lecture is now available: https://youtu.be/2ogILax0p0E

STC Library presents scholar, author, and professor Dr. Paul Cantor of the University of Virginia, who will be discussing Shakespeare’s play, “Much Ado About Nothing.”

“Shakespeare’s contemporaries promoted an overly idealistic—and hence impractical—view of love, which bred overly cynical views of love in reaction. In Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare used all his considerable comedic skills to debunk these false ideas of love, and thereby to reintegrate alienated lovers into society, and restore the healthy role of love as a force for community.”

STC students, faculty, and staff are invited to enjoy film versions of the play, “Much Ado About Nothing,” from 1984, 1993, and 2012. The play can also be read in full, here. Access to these resources requires an STC username and password.

A free, online version of the play, “Much Ado About Nothing,” can be accessed by the public, here.
