Subject:        Malvolio's yellow stockings
 
If I were going to do  _Twelfth Night_ in a contemporary dress, I think I would
have Malvolio wear early nineteen seventies gear:  flared trousers,  a jacket
with wide lapels, and a kipper tie. My students laugh their heads off at the
sight of such gear. Textual changes would be fairly easy: "Remember who
commended thy yellow necktie, and wish'd to see thee ever flared-trousered."
and "This does make some obstruction of the blood, this necktie; but what of
that?"

At a later date, Malvolio's reward for self-denial appears reappears in Angelo
that precise authoritairrian in *Measure for Measure*.
