Viola finds herself falling in love with Orsino—a difficult love to pursue, as Orsino believes her to be a man. Olivia asks him to come with her to the parson and be married to her; Sebastian, though he is completely confused, goes to be married to her. Straying from his Elizabethan gender role, he wishes for a more outspoken woman or woman dressed as a man… as I the only one that was a bit weirded out by the ending? Antonio is abandoned by Sebastian at the end of the play, and like Malvolio, there is no happy ending or resolution for him. At first, Olivia seems to be the emotional counterpart for the duke; he is a melancholy parallel for Olivia, and Olivia has sworn to abjure the world for seven years to mourn for her dead brother, an act of extreme sentimental melancholy. Realising his own attraction to 'Cesario', Orsino promises that once Viola is dressed as a woman again, they will be married as well.

Sebastian debates with himself whether he is mad, or whether it is the Lady Olivia who is crazy, though this does not stop him. Sebastian decides to go along with it, struck by Olivia's beauty, thinking it all a pleasant dream from which he hopes he will not awaken. Olivia enters, with her attendants, and is somewhat displeased and short with Feste; Feste says she is a fool for mourning her brother, if she knows that her brother is in heaven. He is recognised by Orsino's men and arrested. There is also a very close friendship between Sebastian, and his rescuer, Antonio.

As it happens, the Captain is from Illyria, and tells Viola of Count Orsino, and of his love for Lady Olivia; the Captain also mentions Olivia's recent loss of both her father and her brother, and Viola, having lost her brother as well, commiserates with Olivia's situation. Author: Brandon Johnson. Sir TobyOlivia's drunken uncle, is approached by Olivia's handmaiden, Mariaabout his late hours and disorderly habits. The Elizabethan time period Twelfth Night was set in, the society was extremely patriarchal. Together, they use a letter to trick Malvolio into believing Olivia loves him.

Twelfth Night Summary

Orsino asks Viola to go to Olivia and make Orsino's case to the lady; Viola says she will obey, although she confesses in an aside that she already feels love for Orsino, and would rather be his wife than try to woo Olivia for him. She likes feeling sorry for herself.

John H. Viola and Sebastian see each other again, and there is a joyful reunion. He is baffled, since he has never seen her before.

The conflict between appearance and reality is brought to the fore by die elements of role-playing and disguise. Suddenly, Viola has newfound hope that her brother may be alive. Just then, the real Sebastian arrives to apologise for fighting Sir Toby. Sir Andrew finally comes to his senses, realizing that Olivia favors.

Malvolio approaches, already muttering nonsense about thinking that Olivia fancies him, and about how things would be if they were married; this angers Sir Toby and Sir Andrew, who want to beat Malvolio for his pretension.

Antonio proposes that they meet up at an inn in one hour, and that Sebastian can wander about until then. Viola, disguised as Cesario, falls in love with Orsino.

Twelfth Night

Viola attempts to soothe Orsino's melancholy by getting him to accept that Olivia might not love him, but that perhaps another woman does; Orsino counters this with the argument that women are very inconstant in their love, and could not have a feeling as deep as the love he has for Olivia.

This book is absolutely wonderful. I most definitely recommend this for students in high school through college. Maybe middle school though it's a very small chance they will understand the concept and comedy.
