Viola, one of the twins, discuises herself as a man named Cesario and goes off to seek work from the Duke, Orsino. Orsino told Cesario to go and give Olivia his words of love. But when Cesario got there, Olivia fell in love with him instead of Orsino. While thatwas hapening, Sabastian, Viola's twin brother) is saved by a criminal named Antonnio. He becomes Sabastians best friend ad swears to protect him at all times. Then, Malvolio becomes the target for a prank by Maria, Sirs Toby and Andrew and Feste the fool.

The fool dresses up as Sir Topazz from the church and makes it seem like Malvolio is mad again.

Before that fight could finish, the calvalry arive and capture Antonnio. When Cesario doesnt bail him out, since Antonnio still thinks Cesario is Sebastion, he calls Cesario an ungrateful brat and the calvary takes him away. As Cesario leaves Sir Tobe says that he isn't a gentleman because he didn't help his friend. Later that same day, Sir Tobe meets Sabastion and punches him in the face. Sabastion returns with three more punches and then Oliviaa comes out and calles Sir Tobe a Barbaric Cave-Man and when they leave, she asks if Sabastian would marry her. He says yes, though he just met her, and they get married in private. After that, Orsino, Olivia, Sabastian, and Viola, still Cesario, meet and get confused because there are two Cesario's. After everyone is clear with what happened, Sabastion officialy marries Olivia and Viola marries Orsino.

William Shakespeare was a playwright and poet. He was born in Stratford upon Avon, on 26 April 1564, as the third child of John Shakespeare and Mary Arden. He died on his birthday in 1616. Shakespeare was also an actor in Latin plays and other things. William would have attended 'petty school' from about the age of five to about seven, learning to read. But before that he would have gone to Stratford's grammar. He left school at the age of 15 and had a handful of options. Shakespeare could have gone into his father's trade as an apprentice.William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway on November 28, 1582, in Worcester, in Canterbury Province. Hathaway was from Shottery, a small village a mile west of Stratford. William was 18 and Anne was 26, and, as it turns out, pregnant. Their first child, a daughter they named Susanna, was born on May 26, 1583. Two years later, on February 2, 1585, twins Hamnet and Judith were born. Hamnet later died of unknown causes at age 11.By 1592, there is evidence William Shakespeare earned a living as an actor and a playwright in London.

Orsino said "How will she love when the rich golden shaft hath kill’d the flock of all affections else that live in her; when liver, brain, and heart" Which is a reference to Cupid, the boy-god of love who had two kinks of arrows.Orsino said " methought she purged the air of pestilence. That instant was I turned into a hart and my desires, like fell and cruel hounds, e’er since pusue me." Which is a reference to, Actaeon, a greek youth, who watched Artemis bathing in a pond when he was hunting.Viola said " My brother he is in Elysium." Which means He is in Heaven.Feste said, "Toby would leave drinking, though wert as witty a piece of Eve’s flesh as any in Illyria" Which is a reference to Eve from the Bible. which also means Woman (Eve's Flesh)Feste said "Now may Mercury endue thee with leasing, for thou speakest well of fools" Which is a reference to the roman god of liars, cheats, tricksters, and thieves, Mercury.



Sir Toby Belch, the beer lover, is named after the noisy expulsion of gas from his mouth.Sir Andrew Aguecheek is associated with the word "Ague" means "violent fever". This implies that Andrew's face or "cheek" is super red, which it is.
