Orsino, sending Cesario (Viola in disguise) to woo the lady Olivia, tells her that she is very like a woman, and therfore will be more appealing than he would be. "And all is semblative a womans part" (1.4.34).

Olivia is claimed to be buffeted by strong emotions, but seem to be self- involvement more than anything. When we first met Olivia she pines away for her dead brother. She show no interest in relating to the outside world. She prefers to lock herself up with sorrows and mope around the house. Sir toby comments on the fooliness of his niece, Olivia, devoting her life to mournng for her dead brother. "I am sure care's an enemy to life" (1.3.2-3).
