Now that Viola knows her brother's alive, she can reveal her identity, which is a good thing because now the Duke can marry her. Besides the main plot line there is a lot of action for the servants. He's still confused? The quote below is so ironic in expressing exactly what the reader is thinking at exactly the right time. Feste is rebellious and makes a joke out of a warning that he's in trouble with his "lady" the woman he serves.

The guy's got to write home for more money before we're halfway through the play. It's funny, though, that Viola's cross-dressing is not punished. While the ocean is a wide and dangerous place where families can be destroyed and lives can be lost, the play offers a hopeful point of view. The genre has a few basic rules to follow so let's look at our handy-dandy checklist and see if Twelfth Night fits: Light, humorous tone: Check.

Once Malvolio's bound in the dark room, Feste pretends the room is as bright as day and says Malvolio's "mad" or "ignorant" if he believes the room is dark. The reader quickly realizes Feste is the most aware of all the characters, and he lends a lot of general insight to the play. Malvolio is holding him captive somewhere. Nonetheless, language is definitely evocative of feelings that are greater than friendship throughout the play. Interpretations of the role of Viola have been given by many well-renowned actresses in the latter half of the 20th century, and have been interpreted in the light of how far they allow the audience to experience the transgressions of stereotypical gender roles. Sometimes, this can be the most effective way to explore heavy topics.

It will be best if you act out my feelings—she'll pay closer attention to you, as a young man, than to an older, more serious messenger. This is a way for order to be restored to the Elizabethan universe they were very big on nuptials. Check out " What's Up with the Ending?

It has been noted that the play's setting also has other English allusions such as Viola's use of "Westward ho! This isn't really news for the audience, but it clears things up for Olivia and Malvolio.

Helena Bonham Carter? The names of most of the characters are Italian but some of the comic characters have English names. There are a lot if puns and practical jokes in it and the focus is really not on the love story.

He starts acting out the contents of the letter to show Olivia his positive response. It's funny, though, that Viola's cross-dressing is not punished.

Well, let's think about this in terms of who has money, who hands out money, who loses or doesn't have money. Should I mention that Viola has a twin brother, who she thinks has drowned in a ship wreck that she herself survived, but who hasn't? Viola cross-dresses as "Cesario" and falls in love with Duke Orsino, who is smitten with Olivia, who is hot for "Cesario" but ends up marrying Viola's look-alike twin brother, Sebastian.

In one of the first What you will book allusions to the ocean, the sea captain offers a stunning image: I saw your brother, Most provident in peril, bind himself, Courage and hope both teaching him the practise, To a strong mast that lived upon the sea; Where, like Arion on the dolphin's back, I saw him hold acquaintance with the waves So long as I could see.

Here's the gross part. No problemo, says the Duke. Orsino doesn't mean any of it not about her anyway. All of you can go if you want to, for I feel my best when I'm away from people.Twelfth Night is a great book.
