Character Analysis

Holofernes, the schoolteacher, may have been an afterthought in the writing of the play. Along with Nathaniel, he doesn't exist until the fourth act. With his verbal spouting, a soup made of Latin, synonyms and digressions, he should be a lesson to the young scholars: too much book-learning and you'll turn out like this guy.
