9. Symbols: Really faking it.

Much Ado About Nothing

William Shakespeare, 1600
Famous for: Verbal sparring, taking note, and a whole lot of little lies … some with nearly dire consequences.

Hero’s death. The drama! The tragedy! The symbolism? Yep. In Much Ado About Nothing, Hero’s wrenching fake death scene isn’t just the climax of this play. It’s also Shakespeare’s most important symbol.
