One character in the play is Bene*censored* and he is expressed in an interesting way. Bene*censored* is a character that not only deceives other characters in the play, but most of all he deceives himself. Bene*censored*s deceiving ways derive him to be a hypocritical character; this phenomenon makes his role compellingly intriguing in the play “Much Ado About Nothing”. Bene*censored* has a unique view toward love, he wants no part in giving or receiving love. He has a simple way to live, “I will live a bachelor” (Shakespeare I .i.176), he first chooses not to get involved in the love scheme. Bene*censored* has strong hold on that feeling and whats to keep it that way.
Encounters with a character known as Beatrice prove this to be true. Everytime these characters see one another arguments are endless, and put downs are fired back and forth. In fact Bene*censored* tells her “..I would I could find in my heart that had not a hard heart, for truly I love none” (I.i.92), his one way view is expressed to confirm his stubborn ways of love. The bickering between these two make it obvious that there is a hidden-love, which has potential. All the while Bene*censored* is making clear that he will not fall to love and nothing will change his view.
The deception will come from his view that is extremely well grounded. Another instance where Bene*censored*s deceiving way are used is later in the play. This time Bene*censored* is the deceived instead of the deceiver. This is where Bene*censored* becomes a hypocrite. Deception still is taking place, just in different ways. Close friends of Bene*censored* known that Bene*censored* is listening to their conversation, and they say how Beatrice and is in love with him and he should go for this.
Playing with his mind they say “Shall we go seek Bene*censored*, and tell him of her love?” (III.i.154), they known that Bene*censored* is listening so they dont have to tell him. Bene*censored* starts to believe that this is true and his feelings suddenly change. Thus making him a hypocrite to all those people that he told his original view of love. Bene*censored*s deceiving ways counter against him in this case. The hidden love between the two is now present. Bene*censored* with the change of view towards love is now ready to do anything for Beatrice. Being once a man that would remain a bachelor forever and now he is at the foot of a women telling her he will do anything because he loves her so much.
