Thank you Amazon for delivering this next day at an unbeatable price.
The enchanting story of Viola dressed as the page Cesario, with whom both Orsino and Orsino's erstwhile object of desire fall in love, is filled with rapturous poetry that articulates love, desire and romantic melancholy. But these central relationships are modulated by Malvolio's desire for his mistress Olivia, the bawdy comedy of Sir Toby Belch, and Antonio's unrequited desire for Viola's twin, Sebastian.
Ultimately social harmony is restored - but the portrait of Malvolio gives us an insight, perhaps, into how characters such as Edmund in King Lear, and Iago are created.
So a sunny, feel-good romantic comedy, but shaded lightly by a darker tinge.
It's winter and the rain it raineth every day, so why not curl up with this one?
Being only second series, it does suffer from a slightly confusing layout in comparison to the third series (Twelfth Night 3rd Edition being released in Winter 2007), however, it still has an awesome in-depth analysis of the play text, and a very interesting 100page essay at the start to give an overview of the play which provides choices for the actor, or ideas for the essay-writer.
Definately worth a buy.
