Subject:        Re: Don John

We are told in Much Ado that Don John "has of late stood out against"
Don Pedro.  In a summary of the scene, the New Folger Library Edition
suggests that Don John was "defeated" by Don Pedro in the "just-ended
war."  I can't see any reason for supposing this.  Does anyone have a
suggestion as to the nature of their past quarrel?
