Found within William Shakespeare's play The Twelfth Night are many aspects of irony that contribute to its comical nature. In particular, the character Cesario, whose actor is veiled under two layers of falsity, is interesting not only because of the humor that surrounds him, but because of his role as an outlet for the characters' sexual energies. Through Cesario's relationships with other characters in The Twelfth Night, Shakespeare is able to explore the concept of homosexuality without the risk of being socially unacceptable.
