Sub- PlotThe sub-plot of Twelfth Night, the gulling of Malvolio by Sir Toby Belch, Maria, Feste, is famous as one of Shakespeare's funniest experiments in a style of comedy. The duping of Malvolio is linked to main plot thematically in the obvious sense that it deals with a variety of love, namely, self-love, a wholesale preoccupation with self-interest and a refusal to see anyone as important other than oneself. Such a preoccupation leads to a misconception of the world and a total vulnerability to being manipulated into betraying oneself, as Malvolio does, by trusting that one's desires match the reality of the situation. Malvolio is punished because he is so wrapped up in his own importance that he sees no value in anything else or anyone other than himself.
