About the Book

Twelfth Night is believed to be the most entertaining play by Shakespeare. Numerous premier Shakespearean critics consent to it including Harold Bloom. The entire tone of the play is set by how it starts. The play starts with the pride of Orsino which he keeps up as far as possible. Arrogance is an obsession of Orsino. He is addicted to himself yet it is he who Shakespeare decides to say, "if music is the food of love, play on" and starts the play. The starting scene is set in Duke Orsino's royal residence wherein his court Curio and different Lords are sitting with musicians. Orsino's first discourse is unexpected because he is, maybe intentionally, expressing out loud whatever he is in a real sense going to do in Olivia's case. Shakespeare compares love with the feeling of cadenced music and violets blooming. The sluggish music which Orsino requests to be played again will before long sickening to him. The aroma which emerges from a bank of violets is so new yet before long becomes scent. The soul of adoration is moreover "fast and new" at the outset however it can't endure its ability lastly, its intensity begins to decrease slowly, and the quality begins to degrade. Orsino talks about the dream which lies in the human creative mind and how inconsistently it develops and passes on.

About Author

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English artist and dramatist, broadly viewed as the best essayist in the English language and one of the world's pre-famous playwrights. His magnetic works comprise 38 plays, 154 pieces, two long story sonnets, and a few other sonnets. Shakespeare was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. He was 18 when he got married to Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three kids: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Somewhere in the period between 1585 and 1592, he started to professionally work in London as an entertainer, author, and part proprietor of the playing organization then called 'the Lord Chamberlain's Men', later known as the King's Men'. Very few records on Shakespeare's personal life have been collected by now which has led to significant speculations and research on matters such as his sexuality, strict convictions, and whether the works ascribed to him were composed by others. Shakespeare delivered the greater part of his known work somewhere between 1590 and 1613. He was a highly regarded writer and dramatist in his days. However, his standing didn't ascend to its current statures until the nineteenth century. The Romantics acclaimed Shakespeare as a virtuoso and the legends of the Victorian era adored him. Irish novelist, Bernard Shaw termed the word 'bardolatry' in his honor. In the 20th century, his work was rediscovered by new developments in grant and execution.
