When Feste Sings ? ?Youth?s a stuff will not endure? he reiterates the carpe-diem motif in his own way, but what Shakespeare actually gives him is a new idiom that is straight-forward though tremendously witty and Philosophical without being too pedantic. Viola disguised as Cesario dominates the stage with her vibrant energy and sheer spontaneity. Malvolio takes the audience by surprise as does the intriguing ?transformation? of Feste into sir Topas the curate. The alternative title of the play ?what you Will? is Suggestive enough in removing The strict Frame (s) in Which one may think of confining Twelfth Night. The Feast of Epiphany and the rituals associated with it are significant codes for a play that develops the clear distinction between affectation and true love in the never-never land of Illyria. Twelfth Night acknowledge the ?Cake and ale? Issue and Enables the Audience to re-define the genre of Shakespearean Comedy.
