Hey I really need help on my English Literature Coursework on Much Ado About Nothing! My question is The clown figures contribute mostly to the comedy but without them the serious issues of this play wouldn't be realised. To what extent do you agree with this view?' PLEASE HELP ASAP!

My coursework question is different and on A Midsummer Night's Dream but its related to comedy nevertheless

Make up 3 arguments for your statement and 3 arguments against.

As your question relates to clowns, explore the ways in which the characters are portrayed as clowns (through stage directions, dialogue and costume). Regarding the serious issues, pick out pivotal phrases from their dialogue/ stage directions which portray them as remarkably insightful. Natural fools are a popular aspect of comedy and look up the characteristics of a natural fool on the internet if you haven't done so already.

For your counter argument, talk about other aspects of comedy within the play such as carnivalesque, the Greenworld, the grotesque and subversion and incongruity. Talk about the roles of other characters in the play too in generating comedy.

If you want some AO3 marks, talk about clowns from other Shakespeare plays.
For example, the natural fool Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Hope this helps!
