Twelfth Night: Entire Play

http://shakespeare.mit.edu/twelfth_night/full.html





She never told her love,
But let concealment, like a worm i’ the bud,
Feed on her damask cheek: she pin’d in thought,
And, with a green and yellow melancholy,

She sat like Patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief.



{ Viola }



“Washed up on the shore of Illyria when her ship is wrecked in a storm, Viola decides to make her own way in the world. She disguises herself as a young man, calling herself “Cesario,” and becomes a page to Duke Orsino. She ends up falling in love with Orsino — even as Olivia, the woman Orsino is courting, falls in love with Cesario.

Thus, Viola finds that her clever disguise has entrapped her: she cannot tell Orsino that she loves him, and she cannot tell Olivia why she, as Cesario, cannot love her.”
