  • Twelfth Night By Shakespeare
  • Shakespeare's comedies are characterized by: Comedic language Love Obstacles Mistaken Identities Excessive Plot Twists Marriage or Runion
  • An example of this is when the audience learns that Sebastian survived the shipwreck.
  • Plot Twist
  • Mistaken Identity
  • An example of this is when Viola dresses up as a man to get work in the Duke's court. Being a twin she looks a lot like her brother Sebastian.
  • An example of this is when the Duke falls in love with Olivia, who end up marrying Sebastian, however it all changes when he learns that Cesario is really Viola.
  • Love Obstacles
  • Social Climbers: Many of the characters are ludicrous and will do anything for status!
  • Love Triangles: Olivia loves Cesario, Cesario loves the Duke, Orsino loves Olivia.
  • Comedic Language through motifs
  • Gender Bending is a common motif as well as misdirected love. Here Antonio has a 'strong' love for Sebastian that is not reciprocated.
  • The twin siblings are reunited. Sebastian marries Olivia and the Duke marries Viola.
