Abstract or Introduction
This essay examines the contrasting character of love in Twelfth Night. In this play, love is presented as a highly ambiguous affair, eventually bringing about the romantic happiness of a triple wedding as well as the bleakness of Malvolio’s and Antonio’s bitter rejection. In particular, subtexts of unfulfilled homosexual longing and
unappeasable class conflict are explored.
