Illusions "I'll follow this good man and go with you and having sworn truth, ever will be true." (Act IV, Scene 3, line 32) "My kind Antonio, I can no longer answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever oft good turns." (Act III, Scene 3, line 14) "My bosom is full of kindness, and I am yet so near the manners of my mother that, upon the least occasion more, mine eyes will tell tales of me." (Act II, Scene 2, line 39) These three quotes from Sebastian portray his character. These quotes show us that Sebastian is a kind and honest man. They show the softer side of his character. They show us that he can be very sentimental and generous. I chose the quotes because I thought they described his ...

- In The Play Twelfth Night, Shakespeare Explores And Illustrates The Emotion Of Love With Precise Detail According To Websters - 812 words
In the play "Twelfth Night," Shakespeare explores and illustrates the emotion of love with precise detail. According to "Webster's New World Dictionary," love is defined as "a strong affection or liking for someone." Throughout the play Shakespeare examines three different types of love: true love, self love and friendship. "Twelfth Night" consists of many love triangles, however many of the characters who are tangled up in the web of love are blind to see that their emotions and feelings toward other characters are untrue. They are being deceived by themselves and/or the others around them. There are certain instances in the play where the emotion of love is true, and the two people involve ...

- Masks In The Twelfth Night - 925 words
Masks In The Twelfth Night In Irne, Voltaire wrote, Shakespeare is a savage with sparks of genius which shine in dreadful darkness of night. One of Shakespeares sparks of genius was in his use of masks. These masks put characters in a sort of darkness of night, allowing them to become someone else. They are used for imagery, so one can discover who a person isthe inside of the mask. Masks are used throughout Shakespeares Twelfth Night to reveal characters true emotions, to carry the story and explain things to the reader, and to express the power of raw beauty. Shakespeare uses this imagery of a mask in many of his characters in the play, but mostly in two: Viola and Feste. Throughout the pl ...

- The Clown Of 12th Night, Feste - 428 words
The Clown Of 12Th Night, Feste In William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, the character Feste is what you might call a clown. In the script he is sometimes called the Fool, and he may present himself as that. He is the comic relief for the serious scenes, although sometimes he will provide the serious subject matter himself. Feste also seems to somewhat all-knowing. He knew when no one else did that Cesario was a woman. All together, Feste seems to not be intertwined in the story too much, but rather and outsider who observes and makes random appearances when necessary. Feste seems to be a regular fixture in Olivia's household. It seems like he has been there a long time and is accepted almost ...

Twelfth Knight In William Shakespeares Twelfth Night, Or What You Will many relationships are forged or sabotaged for and by the protagonists, and as a result these relationships are made comical. The use of disguise causes deception and misunderstanding which leads to love where it is not meant to be. Foolery leads the characters into inescapable traps, which causes chaos with their emotions, and finally pure physical attraction and not true love lead some characters into falsely believing that they were in love. Therefore relationships were twisted and contorted so often that comedy was bound to result. Throughout Twelfth Night deception caused confusion between many characters, but the on ...

... ssionate plea and later exchanges demonstrate Orsinos developing character. Initially he is more in love with the idea of love. We as the audience and survey of this activity may find his self-absorption laughable but as he develops into a well-rounded character, it is evident why Shakespeare portrayed him in this way. It is vital the believability and credit to the play and its issues that we can emphasize with the characters. To understand why Orsino can love and marry Viola soon after discovering her identity, Shakespeare has portrayed him as a man capable of great passion but little sense. Cesario provides this rational, logical way of thinking and so hence, Orsino becomes more self- ...

Twelfth Night In Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night", it is obvious that the oscillation of attitude, in the dual role played by the character of Viola/Cesario, gives her a better understanding of both sexes. It allows her to encompass a better discernment of the sentiments of the Duke, Orsino. Near the onset of the play, when Viola is assuming her male identity, she fashions an alternate self, giving her two masks. She takes on the "Cesario" identity in order to achieve more freedom in society. This is evident when, as Cesario, Orsino readily accepts her; while, as Viola, he may not have. Thus, the customary societal outlook on gender is portrayed. She now has the difficult task of deciding which ...

Twelfth Night Comedic Conflict and Love in Trevor Nunns Twelfth Night Trevor Nunn's direction of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night takes away some of the confusion present in the reading of the text, which begins with the complicated love interests of the main characters. Having been the artistic director for the world famous Royal Shakespeare Company for eighteen years, Nunn is vastly familiar with adaptations of Shakespeares plays. Part of the comedy of this film develops from the first three acts of the play, which allow for a complex circle of interaction to develop within the film. Nunns use of the prologue at the beginning of the film presents crucial information in an easy to understand, wi ...

- Twelfth Night By Shakespeare - 898 words
Twelfth Night By Shakespeare In the play Twelfth Night Shakespeare shows how anyone can be blinded by love and act so impulsively to satisfy their appetite for love, that often they fall in love with a faade rather then the person behind the disguise. Also Shakespeare also shows how people are apt to ignore the evidence that disproves the disguise they have fallen in love with. Almost all of the characters in Twelfth Night fell in love with a disguise; I will detail the confusing relationships and disguises used in the play to show the blindness of love. Olivia is easily the largest victim to love and disguise. Olivia quickly falls in love with Viola, who is disguised as Cesario. Olivia real ...

Twelfth Night Comedy "Twelfth Night is a comedy of light and shade. Its characters are not unreservedly happy and the events are not unreservedly humorous." Discuss. As a comedy, Twelfth Night is obviously intending to not only entertain its audience but also point out problems in society. It is imperative to entire merit of the play not to be realistic but to allow for empathy. Therefor to have a comedy of complete lightheartedness there would be no balance and hence no avenue for audience interaction. Without light we would have no darkness and for this reason Shakespeare has had to incorporate tragedy in order for the comedy to have its desired effect. The two in juxtaposition accentuate ...

Twelfth Night Comedy The Twelfth Night is a Shakespearean romantic comedy that is filled with plenty of humor and lots of deception. It is frequently read as a play about masking, about the conscious and unconscious assumption of false identities and about levels of self-knowledge and self-deception; this theme is played out prominently through Violas transsexual disguise (Kahn 43). The play is comprised of five acts and numerous scenes. However, I am only going to touch on one of these scenes in my paper. The scene I chose to write about is act V scene I. I chose this scene because it is the one that interested me the most, and I feel that it is also the scene with the most hidden meanings. ...

Viola In 12 Night THE CHANGING ROLE IN VIOLA/CESARIO IN THE 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 between the two identities in emotion and in character. She decides to take on this identity because she has more freedom in society in her Cesario mask, which is e ...
