Were the songs in 12th Night written specifically for the play, or were
they already known tunes?  The lyrics seem just a little too
appropriate.

Does anyone have any theories about the seeming discrepancy between the
length of time the 12th Night twins were apart?  Antonio says 3 months;
Viola in the play's beginning; says 3 days.  The only way I can clarify
it from a performance perspective is that we don't necessarily know how
much time has elapsed between Orsion initially sending off Ceasario to
Olivia and the time Ceasario and Olivia actually meet.

Subject:        Feste

Could someone suggest articles dealing with the role of the clown as
advisor, singer, and comedian? and what their social status was?  And
was there anything similar to being a "ward of the court"  We are
playing with Feste being of the same age as Olivia in a world filled
with those older than the both, as well as the idea of Feste being a
singer with many jobs  (one of them being the officer who arrest Ant.)
Any insight or ideas would also be appreciated.
