Malvolio Essay In the play Twelfth Night the character Malvolio is an ill mannered steward Although Malvolio is ill mannered I truly believe he was treated way to harshly be the others Malvolios departure also leaves a loose end in the plot which weakens the play Even if Malvolio was ill mannered hes treatment by the others was way to harsh There is no reason for a person to suffer such treatment for being accused of being a puritan and so the characters pranks at his expense are more mean than their playfulness suggests Wishing for Olivias love and to be more than his current rank and his continuous disapproval of Sir Toby and Sir Andrews drinking earns him their hatred and quickly becomes their pawn in a complex romantic ruse At first I thought the prank was funny and was just to have a little laugh Sending a letter telling Malvolio that Olivia loves him and that if he wants to make her happy he should do certain foolish things such as wear yellow stockings is the kind of harmless prank we see often enough in our society If the prank would of ended there it would of been just fine but since they want further and they locked him and tied up in a dark chamber for excuse saying he had gone mad I dont believe anyone should be locked in a chamber like that even less when they didnt do anything wrong and even worst they accused him of being mad Malvolio doesnt deserve none of this all his done was be pretty boring and maybe a bit ill mannered which I dont think is all that bad and they could of at least tried to talk to him about it if it bothered them so much At the end Malvolio is released and he leaves threatening to have revenge on the whole pack of them I dont think
