Shakespeare film study
The writer of the play used different words and languages wrongly with a certain meaning attached,
to start with, in act IV scene two, he says that "come let them be opinioned". The words which are
used wrongly are as quoted, "God is my life, where is the sexton? Let him write down the prince's
officer. Come bind them. Thou naughty varlet"Dost thou not suspect my place? Dost thou not
suspect my years? O that he was here to write me down an ass. But masters remember that I'm an
ass, tho it not be written down, not forget that in an ass. No thou villain, tho artful of piety as shall
be provided upon thee by good witness"
Although wrongly used the words have the purpose with a clear message, Dogberry is trying to
portray the message that he is the best, he is the leader and he is supposed to be listened to when
he referred to himself as an "ass" but also on the other side he meant that despite playing an
important role he has been ignored, despised and at times not valued because they have their
formed opinion, a factor that he doesn't seem to like he says "I am an ass though villain" he has
done a lot but little has been appreciated.
The wrong words have been used as connectors and they also bring out the hidden meaning of the
language that has been used in that context. The really meaning is hidden but through clear
interpretation and understanding of the wrong words, it is easy to understand and get the message.
