      This edition of the "Twelfth Night" resolves this problem brillantly, by combining the COMPLETE text of the play, with footnotes explaining archaic terms, with the illumination of Cartooning. Combining the written word with images is a powerful storytelling tool, & Shakespeare was, first & formost, a storyteller.5/5(5). Twelfth Night, or What You Will Summary The play opens at the Illyrian court, where the love-sick Duke Orsino enjoys some live tunes while fantasizing about the luscious Countess Olivia. Too bad Olivia can't be bothered with the Duke or any other living man.

    Twelfth Night—an allusion to the night of festivity preceding the Christian celebration of the Epiphany—combines love, confusion, mistaken identities, and joyful discovery.. After the twins Sebastian and Viola survive a shipwreck, neither knows that the other is alive. Viola goes into service with Count Orsino of Illyria, disguised as a young man, "Cesario.". The mood of Twelfth Night certainly suits the occasion. The alternative title, What You Will, possibly was Shakespeare's own name for the play (note the similarity to As You Like It), which might have been changed to distinguish it from John Marston's play, also called What You Will, written in A prominent nineteenth-century German.
