Twelfth Night

Written by William Shakespeare

Part of the Collins Classics Series

Twelfth Night Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `If music be the food of love, play on; Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die.' A comedic romance of mistaken identity, Twelfth Night begins with a shipwreck, splitting up Viola and her twin brother, Sebastian. Alone in a strange land, Viola disguises herself as a male servant, Cesario, in order to work for the Duke Orsino. Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but it is Cesario that Olivia falls for. A farcical tale of misplaced love, confusion, gender-swapping and aspiration, Twelfth Night remains one of Shakespeare's best-loved and inventive comedies.
