Courteous Modest Altruistic

Don Pedro Motivations
Don Pedro the Prince of Aragon is the noblest of all characters throughout the play, "Much Ado About Nothing" with his humbleness and elusive ability to change other peoples lives for good. Don Pedro has a lot of power and he is well aware of that and unlike his evil brother Don John he uses it for good. Throughout the play Don Pedro motives are to bring pure happenings to his friends and family. Also to be almost has if he was cupid, setting up people to be thriving with love for each other. For Example, "My love is thine to teach: teach it but how, And thou shalt see how apt it is to learn..." I believe Don Pedro uses his conceive plans and manimpulative ideas to put his motivations to the positive ends of things and make the world a better place for everyone.
In the play "Much Ado About Nothing clothing symbolizes your rank of high archery or status. And in the play, Don Pedro wears very fancy clothing that shows a price for fashion. He is related to Don John his evil brother. Don Pedro is a humble and excellent man that spread happiness through the lively hoods of others. For example Benedict and Beatrice both we're not into any sort of relationship with anyone. So Don Pedro saw that and set them both up with his elaborate plans and they soon both fell in love with each other by the end of the play. Throughout the play Don Pedro is a very well liked person in the community and says many things to many people. Overall most all gracious and meaningful comments. Not only that but he gives very good advice to other, "My love is thine to teach: teach it but how, And thou shalt see how apt it is to learn...". This shows that Don Pedro is like a mentor or a guidance helper through the play. I believe Don Pedro changes in the story by controlling his power and his courteous ability by putting it to marvelous cause. By match making others and putting happiness into peoples lives.
Don Pedros Impact of Plot and Theme
The theme of the play "Much Ado About Nothing" Is love and Don Pedro is the almost the main reason why the theme is the way it is. He impacts the theme by becoming a match maker for others like Beatrice and Benedict. In addition he impacts the plot by making it more dramatic as the story builds up. Without Don Pedro the theme or the play as a whole, just couldn't be the same because I believe he is the cupid and brings love to other which creates the theme of the entire play. Although he brings affection and love to others he does not have a lover himself. Honestly I don't know really know what Don Pedro loves, but I think he is just such a humble person he doesn't think about himself, only other people. What he truly loves is bringing happiness. I do know he enjoys the game of lover in general by setting up people. Overall his own relationship with love is mainly pragma.
