Duke Orsino

By: Abel Guzman

Identity

A powerful nobleman in the country of Illyria. Orsino is lovesick for the beautiful Lady Olivia. He's determined to get Olivia. "obsessed with the woman who keeps refusing him"(Shakespeare). I perceive because I am energetic not when it comes to school though. I'm determine to pass this year and become a junior next year. "That instant was I turned into a hart,
And my desires"(Shakespeare).

Gender

Orsino isn't treaded wrong because he's a male. He wasn't forced to do anything. He didn't face any challenges other than trying to get with Olivia. "O, when mine eyes did see Olivia first, Methought she purged the air of pestilence"(Shakespeare).

I'm not treated differently because I'm a male also. I'm not forced to act like anything. In school I don't face any challenges. Yes there are benefits because guys can do somethings females can't do and females can do what guys can't do.

Performance

Other's see Orsino as a desperate man. He tells his musicians to play on and then interrupts and says enough this is not sweet now as it was before. There's a difference between Orsino and how other's view him because he is powerful in Illyria. "If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it that, surfeiting."(Shakespeare).

Other's see me as a class clown, I do act differently depending on the situation. I see myself as a whole other person than other people view me. I don't really know when I altered myself to encouraged my other perspective.

Similarities and Differences

Various similarities between Orsino and I are that we love someone but I don't love one person I love my family my nephew and my little nieces that's almost here. I like to pursue things like Orsino tries to pursue Olivia, I like to pursue the good things in life.


Various differences between Orsino and I are he loves one person I love more than one person. He brings himself down over one person I don't let that happen to me I just keep a positive vibe and go through my day.
