All about Viola

Viola's Identity

Viola’s Identity in Twelve Night consists of being wealthy, brave and very smart. Viola also doesn’t give up easily on getting to work for Orsino, who she also loves. A quote that supports this is “(to OLIVIA) Be not amazed. Right noble is his blood. If this be so, as yet the glass seems true, I shall have share in this most happy wreck.(to VIOLA) Boy, thou hast said to me a thousand times Thou never shouldst love woman like to me.” (Orsino. V. II). A reason why this supports Viola’s Identity is because Orsino is talking about when Viola told him that she wouldn’t love a girl as much as she loved him as a guy. This quote also proves that Viola is brave because she spoke her mind with Orsino. This also proves that Viola is smart because she kept telling Orsino that she loved him even though she was a guy.

Viola's Gender

In Twelve Night woman are not allowed to work for men or in general. Viola dresses up as a guy to get a job, which is working for the Duke Orsino. The other people in Twelve Night view Viola as a weird guy. A quote to support this is “I prithee—and I’ll pay thee bounteously Conceal me what I am, and be my aid For such disguise as haply shall become The form of my intent. I’ll serve this duke.” (I. II. 3). This quote supports Viola’s gender because she needed to get a job to support herself. Viola is forced to act different because Orsino would not have hired her if she didn’t dress up as a guy. Also she would not have been able to get a job if she dressed like a girl.

Viola's Perception

Others people in Twelve Night think Viola is as a little silly/weird because she wanted to work for Orsino, but he only allowed men to work for him. The people also thought that Viola was bad at fencing. The people in Orsino’s court thought that Viola was a really good singer and player especially Orsino. A quote to support this is “Give me some music. (music plays) Now, good morrow, friends.—Now, good Cesario, but that piece of song, That old and antique song we heard last night. Methought it did relieve my passion much, More than light airs and recollected terms Of these most brisk and giddy-paced times: Come, but one verse.” (II. IV. 1.). This quote supports this because Viola thinks that she is a good singer and player. She also thinks that she is very smart for coming up with the idea of dressing up as a guy to get paid.

Viola's Gender in She's the Man

In She’s the Man Viola’s gender limited her from a lot of things like playing soccer and getting Orsino to go on a date with her. She also wasn’t able to take a shower when she needed to. She had to wake up extra early in the morning just to take a shower and practice soccer. This also limits Viola because she can’t use her girly voice, she has to make it deeper. She can also get caught and be sent home easily.
