Orsino, the Duke of Illyria, is in love with the Lady Olivia. Viola, “of Messaline,” wrecked on the Illyrian shore and believing wrongly that her twin brother Sebastian has been drowned, becomes (in the male disguise of Cesario) a page to Orsino. Viola/Cesario falls in love with the Duke. She bears his reiterated and scorned love message to the young countess Olivia, who is mourning affectedly for a dead brother. Olivia falls in love with Viola/Cesario. Meanwhile Olivia’s parasitic relative Sir Toby, her gentlewoman Maria, her “allowed fool” Feste and Fabian, also in her service, join to trick Malvolio, her somber, haughty and puritanical steward, an enemy of them all. Presently, told by a forged letter (ostensibly Olivia’s, actually Maria’s) that Olivia is infatuated with him, Malvolio takes to himself the phrase: “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.”
