  • Theme Of Ignorance In Twelfth Night

    play’s foundation of ignorance in Malvolio, Olivia, Sir Andrew, Orsino, Viola, and Antonio, among others. At our introduction to Olivia, Feste declares her a fool, a harbinger of her impending gullibility. “The lady bade take away the fool; therefore, I say again, take her away” (1.5.8-49). So convinced is Feste of his assessment that he boldly asks her permission to justify the claim: “Good Madonna, give me leave to prove you a fool” (1.5.53-54), which Shakespeare does through the course of the play. We see his prognostication carried out by Olivia. One demonstration of Olivia’s ignorance comes in her unfounded infatuation with the apparent young man, Cesario, whom we know to be Viola in the guise of a man. “I am a gentleman” (1.5.268), Viola impersonates. “I’ll be sworn thou art” (1.5.280), Olivia gulls herself in exposition. Olivia is also completely blind towards her own steward’s intentions. She misinterprets Malvolio’s scorn of Feste. “O, you are sick of self-love, Malvolio” (1.5.86), Olivia scolds. In reality, Malvolio is secretly in love not with himself, but with Olivia, as comes to bear in his professions of love in 3.4. Her ignorance sets her up for unhappiness; she unknowingly leads on her most trusted servant, then falls in love with a man who is really a woman with a fictitious name and a hired personality. Sir Andrew Aguecheek is led on by Sir Toby in many abuses due solely to the fact that Sir Andrew is so gullible. He knows himself to be simple…
