Olivia seems to be the emotional equal for the duke; he could be a despair parallel pertaining to Olivia, and Olivia offers sworn to abjure the earth for several years to mourn for her dead brother, an act of extreme emotional melancholy. Olivia is also the alternative of Viola in many ways. Although Olivia is usually attracted to her opposite (Viola in the fabrication of Cesario), Viola will be attracted to her opposite, Fight it out Orsino.
Apart from the melodramatic pose that Olivia is assuming at the start of the play (we are aware of it to be a cause because she is willing to instantly discard this in order to passade with Cesario), Olivia is definitely presented as being essentially an intelligent woman with a number of good qualities. Her intelligence is constantly seen in the many household matters that she has to go to to. She gets to contend with her drunken uncle, Friend Toby Belch, and when Malvolio presents him self in his angry garb, she gets compassion on her behalf foolish steward. Yet, earler when Feste made entertaining of Malvolio, the over-serious steward, Olivia was fully capable of appreciating the clown's humor.
The single quality that brands Olivia finest is perhaps her impetuous take pleasure in and her assertion than it. She is a lot more aggressive in the pursuit of her love than is Duke Orsino in the pursuit of Olivia. While the lady recognizes the duke's good qualities and acknowledges them, she's adamant in her refusals, and, as a result, it is area of the comedy the lady that has no sympathy for the duke is catagorized so irrationally in love with a young girl hidden as a fresh boy. When ever she finds out that she gets actually wedded young Sebastian, Viola's cal king, she quickly transfers her love to him, just as Fight it out Orsino is able to transfer his love to Viola.
