Much Ado About Nothing was written in the middle years of Shakespeare's career. By then he had already established himself as a dramatist. He had quite a few comedies to his credit. Much Ado About Nothing has fewer 'fantastic' elements than Shakespeare's other comedies. The setting here is drawn to resemble the world of the Elizabethan nobles. The language is pretty ordinary, despite the witty dialogue in certain scenes.
