Writ Finer, by Carmarthen
[Shakespeare - Twelfth Night]
I've never been really satisfied by the resolution of Twelfth Night. Olivia fell in love with Cesario, and Sebastian wasn't quite the same thing. Here we have Olivia longing for Viola, while trapped in her life and the convention of the time. Beautiful language, as well.
If only Viola had been the man, for Sebastian had no poetry in his soul! Olivia would have given all Sebastian's silks and pearls for Viola's poetry and Viola's smile in the morning and Viola's hair on her pillow.
