Scene II Why does Sir Andrew decide to show his love for Olivia by challenging Viola/Cesario to a duel? There are two ways Sir Andrew can try to defeat Cesario. He can challenge him through policy (outsmart him) or through valor (a duel). Sir Andrew is lacking in intelligence, so he decides to challenge Cesario to a duel. How is Maria’s practical joke on Malvolio progressing at this point in the story? Malovlio is following the advice of the fake letter. He is smiling and wearing crossed yellow garters. Maria is certain Olivia will dislike his new way of dressing and behaving. Sir Toby, Maria, and Fabian all go to watch Malvolio make a fool of himself.
Scene III List 2 reasons Antonio follows Sebastian to the Duke’s court. Antonio follows him because they are friends and because Antonio knows the area better than Sebastian Why doesn’t Antonio accompany Sebastian when Sebastian decides to look around the town? Antonio once participated in a sea battle against the Duke. If he is caught in the area, he will be treated as the Duke’s enemy.
Scene IV 1. Which type of “greatness” does Malvolio imagine for himself, as expressed in the dialogue he has with Olivia? Malvolio thinks greatness will be thrust upon him when he marries Olivia. 2. What evidence is there in this scene that Olivia is a compassionate woman? She sends for Sir Toby b/c she wants him to look after Malvolio. Find a passage in this scene where Malvolio is acting superior to Sir Toby, Maria, and Fabian. “Go, hang yourselves all! You are idle shallow things: I am not of your element. You shall know more hereafter.”
4. Find an example of Shakespeare’s use of irony and explain it. “If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.” The comment is ironic because it is more probable that Malvolio is mad than for the mix-ups and mistaken identities in Twelfth Night to be true. It is doubly ironic because Fabian knows the real reason behind Malvolio’s behavior. 5. What do Sir Toby and Fabian plan to do to Malvolio? They plan to tie him up and lock him in a room until they get tired of the joke and set him free.

8. What does the following passage from the play say about Olivia’s tendency toward excessive behavior? “A fiend like thee might bear my soul to hell.” Olivia is saying that she would sell her soul to the devil to get Viola/Cesario’s love. Claiming this shows that Olivia, when she is in love, is just as extreme and over blown as the Duke.
