William Shakespeare: The Complete Works - William Shakespeare

Twelfth Night


This Shakespearean comedy is full of misunderstandings, both intentional and unintentional, that quickly lead to hilarious results.  The boy-playing girl-playing a boy trope is wonderfully used in the personage of Viola/"Cesario" is in someway the main cause of most the hilarious happenings from the audience's point-of-view.  The troika of Sir Toby, Fabian, and Maria's prank upon Malvolio while funny, does seem to take away from the overall flow of the play at times instead of potentially other hilarious happenings related to Sebastian being mistaken for Cesario more often.  Overall it was a fun read and I wouldn't mind seeing it on stage or an adaptation.
