    In the beginning of the play, Claudio is described as naive. This means that he lacks experience and is easily influenced or deceived.

    What does this quote suggest? "Done to death by slanderous tongues Was the Hero that here lies: Death, in guerdon of her wrongs, Gives her fame which never dies.

    B. Claudio deeply regrets his actions

    The quote suggests that Claudio deeply regrets his actions. The lines "Done to death by slanderous tongues" and "Death, in guerdon of her wrongs, Gives her fame which never dies" imply that Hero was falsely accused and slandered, leading to her death. Claudio realizes the injustice of his actions and feels remorseful. The line "Hang thou there upon the tomb, Praising her when I am dumb" shows that he acknowledges his guilt and wants to honor Hero's memory. The mention of music and a solemn hymn further emphasizes the somber and regretful tone.
