In this article, the writer maintains that in "Twelfth Night", William Shakespeare was clearly concerned to teach several lessons about the nature of love and of human relationships. In this essay, the writer discusses that Shakespeare uses the element of comedy to portray these lessons through different characters and that this was more effective than if the information had just been put across in an instructional manner.
From the Paper:"In this essay it will be argued that the lessons are made more accessible due to being conveyed by characters and actions in a romantic comedy, frequently in a comic way, than they would have been if the lessons were simply stated in a didactic way. In Shakespeare's time, his plays provided entertainment and often comedy to people who had far less access to entertainment than we do in our time, with our highly commercialized and ubiquitous entertainment industry."
