Much Ado About Nothing!

Which in the play from which it's taken translates to something akin to "Much resulting from idle gossip", pretty apt really, as I am sure you are aware to have quoted it ,in that manner, with the "caps".

Debatable. A lot of fuss over something that is insignificant, is probably a closer translation..   :dontknow:


No not really....your interpretation is the way that people often use it these days....but that's not the way it was intended...the whole play centres on a play on words you see.... nothing plays on noting, an old word for gossip, so although you might think it means a lot of fuss over something insignificant, in the play things are turned on their head somewhat, hence much resulting from gossip.......it relates to two relationships and unsurprisingly things become complicated....

As I said, debatable.

Rabbit hole, and I ain't going there again.   :laughcry:

One thing though. Of the two interpretations, I would think that "a lot of fuss over something insignificant" is more likely to be what Marcus is referring to.  :dontknow:

How very dare they!! :watching:
They had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes.

Bit late on this one, as only come on here about once a week.  BUT - I’ve always called the play … “Big Fuss about Sod All”…. Read it in a satirical book called “My Tory Friends, and Yours” by Stanley Walter Broadhurst, on Amazon….
