LEONATO: Indeed, she looks younger than she did, by the loss of a beard.
DON PEDRO: Nay, a’ rubs herself with civet: can you smell her out by that?
CLAUDIO: That’s as much as to say, the sweet youth’s in love.
DON PEDRO: The greatest note of it is her melancholy.
CLAUDIO: And when was she wont to wash her face?
DON PEDRO: Yea, or to paint herself? for the which, I hear what they say of her.
*curtsies* Dear Duke, I'm new to Shakespeare and currently reading Much Ado About Nothing. There's one thing that bugs me- how can Hero still marry Claudio even after what he did? Is it because this is a comedy? Would that make sense when one thinks about the time when the play was written? Sorry for my English. It's my second language. Ps. I love you blog so much and have learnt quite a lot from it! Thank you!
