scene 1 orsino s castle
Scene 1 - Orsino's Castle

We learn a lot about love and Orsino's character: he wants what he wants (Olivia)

Famous lines:

"If music be the food of love, play on,

Give me excess of it that, surfeiting,

The appetite may sicken and so die." -lines 1-3

  • Shakespeare defines love; it's unwanted/not easily avoided
  • Orsino is lovesick and unhappy because of it
    • Hopes more music will stop him from loving (surfeit = overdose)
  • Connects to EQ "What is the difference between friendship, lust, and love?"

Other side of love

"O spirit of love, how quick and fresh art thou

That, notwithstanding thy capacity

Receiveth as the sea, naught enters there,

Of what validity and pitch so e’er,

But falls into abatement and low price

Even in a minute! So full of shapes is fancy

That it alone is high fantastical." -1.1 lines 9-15

Overpowering love ("fancy") compared to imagination (that which is "fantastical")

  • Is love more about imagination or reality of the person who is loved?
  • Orsino likes the idea of thinking about Olivia more than the reality that she won't love him
scene 2 the seacoast
Scene 2 - The Seacoast

Viola is shipwrecked and is talking with the ship's captain

From their conversation, we can infer that Viola:

  • Is rich
    • Pays Captain for calling Sebastian hearty and keeping her disguise a secret
  • Is hiding something
    • she mentions needing to keep her identity secret until the right moment
  • Likes/Is interested in Orsino
    • asks if he's still a bachelor

Viola asks the Captain to help her disguise herself as a high-singing boy so that she can work for Orsino

scene 3 olivia s house
Scene 3 - Olivia's House

Sir Toby is talking with Maria about Sir Andrew

  • Sir andrew is supposedly brave, smart, multilingual guy (perfect for Olivia)
  • Sir Andrew is dumb and slow in reality

Sir Toby is a lighthearted drinker and a partier (parties with Andrew)

Maria is a more practical, witty maid

Sir Toby won't believe anything bad about Sir Andrew

  • has too much faith in his friend
  • believes Andrew needs to show off his skills some more
elements of satire
Elements of Satire

Sarcasm - used to exemplify Andrew's dumbness

Andrew: But it becomes me well enough, does ’t not?

Toby: Excellent. It hangs like flax on a distaff.

-1.3 lines 99-100

Andrew is too thick to understand that Toby basically compared his hair to an old mop
