Twelfth Night Character Map

While reading through Twelfth Night I found myself getting mixed up on the characters and their connections. So I followed Dr. Ullyot’s advice and made a character map.

I started out with the main story line of Orsino, Olivia, and Viola/Cesario. I unintentionally made it into a triangle but it works out perfectly for representing the love triangle that forms between the three of them.

Then I added all the secondary characters (using the character outline at the beginning of the play) and wrote quick notes to remind myself of the connections.

Of course I could add lots of other little lines connecting everyone in a really complex spider web…but that would just confuse me all over again.
