Literary Analysis of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is a play with themes that parallel the folly of the festival it is named after. The main storyline of the plot plays on this a lot by mixing up the stereotypes around gender that were very present at the time. However, a sub-plot involving secondary characters defines this theme even more. It takes the idea even further by relating servants’ attempts to blur the lines between social classes. Twelfth Night’s Maria and Malvolio both have great aspirations to rise above their social class....   [tags: Twelfth Night] 928 words

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare - There’s nothing better than a comedy to lift your spirits up with baskets full of laughter. I like the idea of comedies when there’s a complete misunderstanding, trickery or when things go wrong. For example in one of the episodes of My Wife and Kids when a girl called Claire tells her dad that there will be photograph day in school. So she asks her dad for a massive photograph of her to put on the wall. Her dad said no. On the day of the school photograph when she woke up, her right cheek was swollen-much bigger than the other....   [tags: Twelfth Night, Olivia, Cesario, comedy, The Elizab] 1025 words

Ongoing Theme of Love in William Shakespeare's Play Twelfth Night - The play Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare is a comedy with the ongoing theme of love.

Types of Love exposed in Twelfth Night - The Merriam Webster dictionary defines love as “a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person” - however, this does not encompass a fraction of the feeling a person has when he or she loves something. Because the sensation differs from one person to the next, there is no possible way to accurately define love. However, it is possible to try to understand love by breaking it down into several categories. Humans have been pondering this idea for centuries, with one of the earliest examples being found in the Christian Bible....   [tags: twelfth night, shakespeare, love, orsino]

In Will Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night or What You Will, Shakespeare attempts to have a great balance of both cruelty and joy while also containing comical qualities to this romantic play. Throughout Twelfth Night or What You Will, Shakespeare uses puns with characters such as Viola to cross-dress and change their identity.

Notes on Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare - Act I "'Get you to your lord. I cannot love him. Let him send no more, Unless, perchance, you come to me again.'"-- Olivia (Shakespeare 25) Olivia shows interest in Cesario. This stirs up more dramatic irony as the audience knows that Cesario is actually Viola in disguise. Her interest in Cesario makes it more difficult for Orsino to woo her and for Viola to eventually reveal herself. What was before a simple plot of a man trying to win over the girl, is now a complex story of a love triangle.

The Language of Love in Twelfth Night - ... Shakespeare shows characters of opposite sex in love, he shows characters of same sex in love, he shows family love, and love amongst friends. Furthermore, Biewer explains that, “If we talk of words in a semantic field as being similar, we can also point out that the words are distinguishable” (509). Meaning that although Twelfth Night has this central focus of love, each does not necessarily share the same component of love. One specific example of Shakespeare using psychology to differentiate degrees of love would be when Olivia proclaims that she has fallen in love with Viola/Cesario: Olivia: Unless the master were the man....   [tags: Shakespeare plays, character analysis]

The Twelfth Night: A Happy Ending? - There is a certain degree of expectation with the genre of comedy that despite whatever difficulties appear within the play, by the end these will be resolved and the play will have a traditional happy-ending with a marriage or a celebration in the final scene.

"Twelfth Night" - A Tragic Comedy - Shakespeare’s comedies have always had a distinct subtext of tragedy as shown in Twelfth Night. It teeters on the brink of tragedian literature similar to his tragedies, such as Hamlet, through the ambiguity of the main characters and unfinished resolutions. Comedies are generally morally clear- the villains and heroes are clearly defined. Twelfth Night’s characters have a layer of ambiguity stemming from their use of illusion in the form of mistaken identity. A central theme of the play is the contrast between illusion and reality and how the characters in the play manipulate their various roles for their own benefit and against each other....   [tags: Shakespearean Literature]
