Using Sigmund Freud 's work on narcissism, the true nature if the characters of Twelfth Night could be well explored by analyzing the moments of epiphanies. To begin, in Twelfth Night, characters suffer from vanity, a kind of misdirected love. That is, this love is directed toward self rather than toward others. In this manner, vanity deters the process of love. However, love vanquishes vanity.

Neil King’s definition of a comedy, “a work which is primarily designed to amuse and entertain, and where, despite alarms along the way, all’s well that ends well for the characters” (King 55) is undoubtedly affirmed by Shakespeare’s use of comedic features such as dramatic irony. Despite the creation of exuberant comedy within the play, principal sub-plots in ‘Twelfth Night’ such as the gulling and confinement of Malvolio, prove that when looked at in more depth, to some extent, the play’s comedy cloaks themes of cruelty and suffering.

Employing this historical background for the ‘Twelfth Night’ creates the opportunity for revelry to happen.

Another version by Trevor Nunn was made in 1996, and a third version called She’s The Man made in 2006 was directed by Andy Fickman. A comparison of the media skills, characters, and the setting in the various versions of Twelfth Night and She’s The Man shows that She’s The Man is superior to the other Twelfth Night versions for students learning Shakespeare for the first time. The media skills in She’s The Man is more fitting than the other versions of Twelfth Night because of the continuous change of lighting and music to go with the mood of the scene.
