Example text

Tom McAlindon (personal communication) points out that these lines are closely based on Thomas 1 loby's translation of Castiglione, The Courtier (1561), Book 2 (cd. Virginia Cox, 1994), p. 159: 'he must be wise, and have great respect to the place, to the time and to the persons with whom he talketh, and not like a common jester passe his boundes . .

The wider play is arguably interested in a more complex form of babble or riddle, embodied in the 'corrupter of words' Feste's aslant observations on the world, and in Viola's shifting gender. Unlike Malvolio, Viola is a maker of riddles; riddling is her particular 'habit', her conscious, teasing signalling of disguise.
