The Norton Shakespeare Comedies, Much Ado About Nothing (via eighttwotwopointthreethree)
Everyone tags this with “not all men” but one of the things that is so powerful about Much Ado is that you do have, like, the one romantic hero in Shakespeare who gets it and actually figures out that the whole culture of cuckoldry panic is toxic and damaging and actually steps back from it — I know Greenblatt has a much darker reading of the play, because he’s a New Historicist and they always do, but the fact that Benedick is the only man in the play (other than the Friar, but he’s not part of the play’s whole bro complex) who believes in Hero’s innocence is a pretty big deal, given that even Hero’s own father doesn’t believe her, because “would the two princes lie, and Claudio lie?” And it’s very much a play about learning to be a good ally to women and recognizing that patriarchy is destructive — which I think is why Benedick comes off as pretty much the only romantic comedy lead in Shakespeare who feels worthy of the heroine. The flip side of the quote above is that the play is pretty optimistic about the possibility of a feminist heterosexuality, not that Shakespeare would have put it in those terms because he wrote the play in 1599ish but ykwim, and it requires listening to women and accepting their experiences as valid.
