The question of gender in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

In this video Lyndy Summerhaze reveals how Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night hilariously reveals the mad re-interpretations of ‘love’ and ‘gender’ that we have said ‘yes’ to and which have kept us stuck in a repeating cycle of desire, rejection, degradation, excitement, melancholy, and torment . . . all of which we have imagined love to be, but which have actually set us up to keep love at bay.
