This scene introduces us to the Duke, who is in love with a girl called
Olivia. His servant goes to ask her wether or not she would like to go out with
the Duke. The message back from her servant is that Olivia will not be seen in
public for seven years because of the death of her brother.
After a shipwreck, Viola finds herself of Illyria, a coastal town. She
believes that her brother has been killed in the shipwreck, and that she will
never get off this island. After learning about the Duke, she arranges with the
captain of the ship to disguise herself and to serve the Duke. He may then fall in
love with her.
Sir Toby and Maria are talking to each other about Olivia’s decision to
morn for seven years. They are also talking about Sir Toby’s drinking and
friend, Sir Andrew, a foolish knight that has been brought to the castle as a
suitor to Olivia. Sir Andrew says he is going to leave, but Sir Toby persuades
him not to, as Olivia is not interested in the Duke. Maria leaves, and Andrew
and Toby dance.
Viola, already disguised as Cesario (she is referred to as Cesario instead
of Viola throughout the play), has already became a servant to the Duke. Her
first job is to try and persuade Olivia to go out with the Duke. Viola has fallen
in love with the Duke.
Maria and Feste the clown are talking when Olivia enters with Malvolio.
She has a conversation with Feste, and he gets the better of her. Maria
announces that a young ‘man’ (Cesario) is here to see Olivia. She says that if he
is from the Duke, she will not see him. Maria returns and says the young man
will not take no for an answer, so Olivia meets him with Maria at her side.
Cesario is very convincing about the Duke’s love, but Olivia is not unstuck. She
dismisses Cesario, and when by her self, shows that she is in love with ‘him’.
She sends Malvolio with a ring Cesario apparently left behind, and said he
should return tomorrow.
Sebastian, Violia’s identical twin brother comes to shore after the
shipwreck, saved by Antonio. He wants to be Sebastian’s servant, but he says
that he will make it to the Duke’s court by himself.
Malvolio runs after Cesario to give him the ring. He denies that he gave
it to her, and so Malvolio puts it on the ground in front of him. He (Viola) think
that Olivia is in love with ‘him’.
Sir Toby and Sir Andrew are talking loudly. Feste joins them and sings a
romantic song for them. The other two then join in. Maria comes down and tells
them that they are making to much noise. Malvolio then enters and tells Sir
Toby that if he doesn’t stop his drinking, he will be banned from the house by
Olivia, his niece. He then leaves, as does Feste. Maria makes up a plan that she
will leave a note that talks of Olivia’s love for Malvolio.
The Duke, still lovesick calls for some music. Feste arrives and sings a
lovesick song back to him. He leaves, and Cesario and the Duke talk. Cesario is
told to go back and try to woo Olivia.
In this scene, the note is set for Malvolio. Sirs Toby and Andrew and
Fabian who hates Malvolio, watch him behind a tree. As Malvolio walks into
the scene he is thinking what it would be like to be married to Olivia. He finds
the note, and goes to do what the note says, which is to dress in yellow cross
In this scene, Cesario again goes to Olivia. She talks to Feste and Sirs
Toby and Andrew. Olivia then comes out and confesses her love for Cesario.
‘He’ then runs away as Olivia continues to pledge her love.
In this scene, Sir Andrew is attempting to leave the castle, as he believes
that Cesario has made more progress towards the love of Olivia. Sir Toby and
Fabian persuade him to stay, and convince sir Andrew to challenge Cesario to a
fight. Maria then enters and tells them all about Malvolio.
Antonio and Sebastian go to an Inn and Antonio gives Sebastian his
purse in case he wants to buy something. Antonio reveals that he is in trouble
with the Duke.

The Truth About Foolishness in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night The Truth About Foolishness in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. William Shakespeare used a unique device to explain how foolishness is an unavoidable part of everyday life. He employed many specific examples of foolishness in his comedy play titled Twelfth Night. Each of the characters he created were all foolish in one way or another. Not only do the characters entertain the audience, but also educate the audience as they portray mankind avoiding obvious truth. Shakespeare takes a humorous appro

FesteFeste Could Feste have been aware of Cesario’s true identity even before the truth came out? In Shakespeare’s play, the twelfth night, one may see Feste as intelligent rather than being foolish. Shakespeare has made it clear to his audience that Feste is much more cunning then the other characters. Feste has always seemed to be the character who see’s much more than everyone else. In the movie, the twelfth night, it seems much more obvious that Feste knows Cesario’s not what he appears to be, ho
Twelfth NightTwelfth Night Summary Twelfth Night In Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, it is clearly evident that the fluctuation in attitude to the dual role and situation and tribulations imposed upon the character of Viola/Cesario ends up in a better understanding of both sexes, and thus, allows Viola to have a better understanding for Orsino. Near the opening of the play, when Viola is adopting her male identity, she creates another self, like two masks and may decide to wear one or the other while swinging be

Comment fully on both parts of this assertion. Most first time readers of Eliot's work would, probably, agree that his poems read as bleak and depressing. They would also say that many of his poems portray society as having a terminal illness, but when we look deeper you can see that amid the anguish not all is lost and there is hope to be found
Nemean LionNemean Lion The story of the Nemean Lion was the first of the twelve labors of Hercules. King Eurystheus chose this as the first labor.

Three Universal Deadly SinsThree Universal Deadly Sins Throughout history, mankind has looked back to the past, to seek the truth about morals, religion, and how they both impact and define civilization. Stories and myths from ancient Greece show overbearing resemblance to our own Bible as both shun the many temptations of our soul either by teaching the value of a characteristic or warning of the ill fruits reaped. Dante Alighieri revealed in his Divine Comedy that Pride, Envy, and Avarice are the three sparks, [the t

Mark Twain one of the most prolific writers in American history used h Mark Twain, one of the most prolific writers in American history, used his previous experiences as an inspiration for his most widely acclaimed literary works. By reading and studying his books, one learns many things about the type of life he led. In some novels, an individual reader can experience his childhood adventures first hand. In his later works there are portions about the importance of love in the family, but, of course, there is always the indomitable wisecrack. John Marshall Clemen
When selecting a good piece of literature one must attempt to appeal t When selecting a good piece of literature one must attempt to appeal to a wide variety of tastes.

KkkKkk The Elizabethan Age underwent a continuing crisis of religion that was marked by a deepening polarization of thought between the supporters of the recently established Protestant Church and the larger number of adherents to the Roman Catholic faith. Of these latter, Edmund Campion may be taken as the archetype. Well known as an Englishman who fled to the Continent for conscience's sake, he returned to England as a Jesuit priest, was executed by the English government in 1581 and was canonize
The Uses Of Deception In Twelth NightThe Uses Of Deception In Twelth Night The Use of Deception in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night Deception is a key theme William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. The characters must use deception to obtain good things, escape bad situations, or to play cruel hilarious ticks on other people. One example of deception is when Viola clothes herself in men's clothing in order to obtain a job under the Duke of Illyria, Orsino. During another scene Sir Andrew, Fabian, Maria, and Sir Toby Belch trick Malv
Where Do You Get LoveWhere Do You Get Love Where Do You Get Love As individuals, we seek a fantastical encounter with “true love.” Through the plays A Midsummer Nights Dream, As You Like It, and Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s characters find “true love” through various tests in which one of the lover’s identity is masked, either physically or subconsciously. While these three plays share different plots, they all portray Shakespeare’s stance that romance exists in human love, and that if the love is pure, it will prev

Twelfth Night Two Faces One MindTwelfth Night: Two Faces, One Mind As in most comedies, William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night extensively uses disguises, masks and mistaken identities to add to the comical nature of the play. Viola's disguise as Orsino's page, Cesario, becomes crucial to the action in the play. Without this important element, the action in the play would slow down dramatically, making the story much less intriguing. In addition to making the play less interesting, the disguise is also necessary to develop the st

The Point of Point of View The Point of Point of View Point of view is an essential element to consider when reading literature of any kind. How an author chooses to tell a story, directly affects how and what the reader sees and feels. Most authors write their stories with a certain point of view in order to keep the reader interested and to help them better understand the characters and their situations. In Truman Capote’s, My Side of the Matter, and John Cheever’s, Five-Forty-Eight, these reasons are the basis for
