Why don't we just give him a lifetime achievement award or some such and save him the embarrassment of losing again. A Malvolio perhaps?ZzGood Lord, another Shakespeare lover. Yet I doubt a Malvolio since: Malvolio's function in this comedy is more difficult to evaluate. Certainly, on a basic level, he functions as a contrast to the merrymakers, Sir Toby and Sir Andrew; he is a somber shadow of the aristocratic world and a sober reminder to Feste that the world is a serious place. While the other characters are almost always happy, Malvolio is grave. He emphasizes the importance of dignity, decency, decorum and "good order"; yet when he thinks he sees a chance for advancement with Olivia, he abandons all such proper conduct and behaves like an utter fool.If not The Feste then let it be The Sir Toby Belch Award realizing it is more apt (I belch exceedingly well) and in every English pub there’s a Toby mug so, if I go there, I can cadge a beer or two.MichaelR
