Okay so you can emphasize on these points :

  • Orlando is noble and never initially held anything against Oliver
  • Oliver is envious of Orlando
  • What Oliver is jealous of (Orlando's noble qualities)
  • Oliver is a contriver and plans to kill Orlando
  • Never gives Orlando food ( feeds with his hinds), keeps him rustically at home, etc. (Act 1 sc.1, I think)
  • The biblical reference - prodigal portion
  • As a result, Orlando is forced to flee to The Forest of Arden

    (You could add a lot of adjectives here and there.)
