Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century
We now return to your regularly scheduled comic, already in progress. Olivia stumbles upon Sebastian, mistaking him for Cesario / Viola. Apparently, Viola in drag looks identical to Sebastian. This either makes Viola really butch, or Sebastian really girly. Since the play makes as point of noting how soft and feminine "Cesario" looks, I suppose that means it's the latter. Poor girly Sebastian. He must've gotten beat up a lot in high school.
As an aside, a woman randomly shouting "Would thou'dst be ruled by me!" would be a pretty easy way to get me into bed. Then again, "Hey, you wanna go to bed?" would be a pretty easy way to get me into bed too. Let's be honest, it really wouldn't take much.
