Inward Beauty and Outer Beauty Much Ado About Nothing shows different ways of how people are attracted to one another and how their realization and definitions of love relate to their perceptions of inward and outward beauty In this comedy Shakespeares satirizes love and human courtliness between two couples who take very different paths to reach the same goal Upon going to war Claudio saw a young woman named Hero that he had seen before going off to fight and felt a strong affection towards her Don Pedro soon heard word of this and told the governor Heros father Leonato the governor informed his daughter of Claudio However Claudio is clearly attracted to Heros outer beauty and knows nothing of her inner beauty Nonetheless after conversing with Benecensored and Don Pedro he decides that he is going to ask for Heros hand in marriage Eventually he woos her over himself and they set a date to be married Don John who is jealous of his brother Don Pedro and Claudios happiness decides to stop the marriage He and his men hatch a plot that gets Claudio to believe that Hero has been unfaithful to him Don John then convinces Claudio to keep his knowledge a secret until the ceremony Then finally on the wedding day just before speaking his vows Claudio shocks the assembly by publicly accusing Hero of adultery She protests her innocence to no avail then faints from the shock The men leave in disgust Leonato believes his daughters claim and they launch a plan of their own to regain her good name Meanwhile Benecensored and Beatrice find themselves being tricked into falling for one another Both overhear conversations about how the other person is desperately in love but is afraid to reveal it However they soon learn to trust their feelings more than their observations of character and witty remarks to each other and as a result see inward beauty
