In Twelfth Night, Viola says that she will pose as a eunuch and be a
messenger from Orsino to Olivia's court.  My question is this:  Does
Olivia see Viola/Caesario as a eunuch, or just as a handsome young boy?
If the former is so, why does Olivia fall for him/her so quickly.
What's the attraction?  It obviously can't be sexual.

Actually, I ordered both the Burton Faustus and the Hoskins Changeling
for my library in the fall of 1998 - from Teachers' Video, I think.
