Describe the summary of Twelfth Night.
2 Answers | Add Yours
One of Shakespeare's finest comedies, Twelfth Night includes a love triangle, misplaced identities and a shipwreck. The shipwrecked Viola disguises herself as a man (Cesario) and turns the story into a tale of interchanging lovers when she falls in love with her employer, Orsino, Duke of Illyria. Orsino, who is in love with Countess Olivia, eventually woos Viola, but not before Olivia falls for Cesario. Sir Andrew also hopes to win the hand of Olivia; meanwhile, Malvolio also believes Olivia secretly loves him. Olivia later mistakes Sebastian for Cesario, and nearly marries the wrong man. In the end, the Duke wins the hand of the no-longer-disguised Viola; and Olivia's servant, Maria, marries the Countess' buffoonish Uncle Toby.
