Much Ado About Nothing Act 5, Scene 3 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Don Pedro accompanies Claudio to the tomb of Hero. Claudio reads out an epitaph for her, and attendants sing a dirge. The two men then depart for Claudio’s second marriage, with which he hopes he will have much better luck.
Here, Much Ado comes closest to tragedy. Claudio has to be in despair over Hero, so that he’ll be overjoyed to see her when she “comes back to life.”
