Shakespeare comparison Viola
In the text by twelfth night viola believes she is a good women and that she has passion love for duke Orsino. And viola is a young women that loves duke Orsino and that she disguise just for the love she has for duke. Therefore viola is a character whos love may seem the purest. She pined in thought,
"And with a green and yellow melancholy
She sat like patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief. Was not this love indeed"
In this quote it shows how viola told duke orsino how she likes him and the love she has for him.
In twelfth night other characters see viola as a helpful and a nice lovely lady. In the other hand viola seems to think she is a lovely person that cares about people and is all about love. Therefore she is, first of all, a very practical and resourceful person. As a shipwrecked orphan who has no one to protect her, she must resort to some means whereby her safety is assured. She knows that a single woman unattended in a foreign land would be in an extremely dangerous position. Therefore they both think similar because she is a very practical young lovely women. "O spirit of love, how quick and fresh art thou
That, notwithstanding thy capacity
Receiveth as the sea, naught enters there,
Of what validity and pitch so e’er,
But falls into abatement and low price
Even in a minute! So full of shapes is fancy
That it alone is high fantastical."
This quote explains in act 1 scene 1 how both duke and viola have similarities that both are in love.
