    " This play was very interesting at some points. Often, I knew what was going to happen, and sometimes I didn't. there were a lot of surprising moments in this play. the end of the play was very surprising due to the love triangle that appeared in the beginning of the play. the play as a whole was very good, but confusing to read. it is best to underline and summarize what happens in the play to fully understand what happened. there are a lot of deceiving characters and mysteries that happen in the play. "

    " Always a hilarity of separated twins, love triangles, and crossdressing. "

    " My favorite Shakespeare comedy with rich characters and a brilliant story. I find it fascinating how different lines can be interpreted in this play. Without stage direction, it is unclear at times to whom a character is speaking- which allows considerable room for interpretation. Fun to read many times. "

    " Twelfth Night involves mistaken identity, drunkenness, playfulness, and love in idleness. Sebastian and his sister Viola are mistaken for one another. Sir Toby Belch and his friend Andrew are drunk most of the time and playing games. A serving woman named Maria isn't drunk, but plays games with the heart of a conceited serving man named Malvolio by making him believe that the woman he serves, Olivia, is in love with him. As for love in idleness, Malvolio is mad for Olivia (as mentioned), Duke Orsino is mad for Olivia, Olivia is mad for Viola (whom she thinks is a man), and some people aren't mad for any other people, but wind up marrying anyway. This is an odd play, and I would like to see a performance of it. So far, I cannot say I enjoy Shakespeare's comedies as much as I do his tragedies. And comparatively speaking for this play vis-a-vis the other comedies, it does not have nearly the lyricism of, for example, Rosalind's love encomiums in As You Like It, nor is it as generally fun as some of the parts of A Midsummer Night's Dream, especially the interactions among the 'rude mechanicals' (some of my favorite characters in all of Shakespeare's comedies so far).

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
