My class has done our Importance of Being Earnest Coursework but now we are doing our Much Ado Coursework. Its a lot harder than the previous and I'm struggling to find a direction. Our teacher was late marking our coursework, so she has given little time for this on ¬¬
Anyway, what I wanted to do was something about the powerplay and how the relationships between the characters fro gender are presented. Any help would be appreciated

Thanks!
At first, what I really wanted to do was how the men were presented less favourably but there wasn't much wider reading I could find.
So my next question was In Much Ado About Nothing, how is the relationship between genders presented?
I'm going to do three relationships. Hero and Claudio. Beatrice and Benedick. Leonato and Hero

It depends on what your teacher said. Did he/she annotate on what you need to do?

Thank you so much for responding! And it is "Beatrice and Benedick are at the heart of the comedy in the play. To what extent do you agree?"

You can talk about Hero and Cladio's traditional courtly relationship. 'The love at first sight' Claudio has for Hero. The play at appearance seems to about Hero and Claudio's relationship but is less interesting - reason why because its the conventional relationship on the Elizabethan era - very superficial and fragile - there is no foundation other than a love based on appearance
- However, Benedick and Beatrice- unconventional - more interesting because of their 'merry war' - their love has a foundation or a history - insulting to hide the fact they love each other - they both know each other's faults and about what each other likes or dislikes = more mature love than H & C
Aspect of comedy = their insults to each other + the deception played on both of them as well as in each act which the deception happens - it echoes each other
Hope this helps

Thank you so much. How kind of you but do you know how to structure paragraphs as in the literature coursework, I make a point. Evidence with quotes then what?

thanks im trying to prove overall that beatrice doesnt conform to gender roles in this particular paragraph im trying to show that although beatrice has said she is going to change she still hasnt because it is an unconventional sonnet which shows she is still the unconventional woman but im trying to talk more about her language and develop the point could you suggest anything?

(this is the text)
What fire is in mine ears? Can this be true?
Stand I condemn'd for pride and scorn so much?
Contempt, farewell! and maiden pride, adieu!
No glory lives behind the back of such. 1190
And, Benedick, love on; I will requite thee,
Taming my wild heart to thy loving hand:
If thou dost love, my kindness shall incite thee
To bind our loves up in a holy band;
For others say thou dost deserve, and I 1195
Believe it better than reportingly.

Usually my teacher tells me to do more in depth analysis of the quote and how it links to your point - if possible then offer any alternative view points
Then you link back to your question

I did this CW last year (although I did A Midsummer Night's Dream) and I'm confused as to why you aren't really writing about comedy. My teachers told us that the questions must focus on aspects of the comedic tradition. We had to incorporate theories of comedy (theories of laughter) alongside traditional comedic features eg the role of a 'fool' or the element of the carnival. I read widely about comedy and specifically Shakespearean comedy and that's is how I achieved stellar marks tbh.
For me there was no easy or quick way to get good marks; it was mostly just reading critically and re-drafting until I was happy with my essay.
