More Info

Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night (or “what you will”) is all about love. Everyone, except Feste the Fool, is in love (which may say something about the wisdom of Fools). Marriages result from emotions that are palpably irrational, silly, transactional, self-focused—and overpowering. Malvolio’s puritanical presence hardly provides an alternative to these innate passions.

Arlene Okerlund, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of English at San Jose State University, specializes in Shakespeare and in Medieval/Renaissance studies. She twice taught in SJSU’s Semester-Abroad-in England where she loved studying Shakespeare and English history on site. During retirement, she has published biographies of England’s first Yorkist queen, Elizabeth Wydeville, in Elizabeth: England’s Slandered Queen, and the first Tudor queen (mother of Henry VIII), in Elizabeth of York.
