\Studyworld\ Studyworld Studynotes \ Twelfth Night:
Did You Know

In Scene 2.3, Feste asks Sir Toby if he's ever seen the picture of "we three." In Renaissance England, there were many pictures of the sort Feste is referring to here. All depicted the same thing: two fools stare out of the picture frame, and a caption beneath reads "we three." The implication, of course, is that the third fool is the viewer.

The reader of Twelfth Night gets a very different impression of Viola than someone seeing a production. A reader knows her name from stage directions, but he knows it "in advance" - Viola's name is never spoken until the last act. Thus, an audience member does not, for almost the entire play, know the real name of the woman who is arguably its heroine.
