Act IV

Olivia declares her love for Cesario to Sebstian (because Cesario[Viola] looks just like her brother). Sebastian plays along and takes part.

"What relish is in this?

Or I am mad, or else this is a dream.

Let fancy still my sense in Lethe steep;

If it be thus to dream, still let me sleep!"

Avt IV/ Scene I
