      Although it occurs many times throughout this passage, here shows Orlando's mind going crazy, or so we all think. I find it interesting how Orlando cannot get used to things that are different and unorthodox to her as she roams the London streets. After all, her change is something that was much different and she got used to it a lot quicker. Does Orlando judge others but she can do no wrong. It is clearly evident as well that her anxiety is a big problem. In the beginning of this biography when Orlando got banished from the Queen's court, he fell into a trance and was at peace until she became a woman and is experiencing these emotions that are fairly new for her. And experiencing these things in a new body can be disorienting.

    1. I say this house is as dark as ignorance,though ignorance were as dark as hell.

      Malvolio's attitude causes Olivia's staff to think little of him because he doesn't know his place in the household, causing everyone to tease and fool arounfd with him. This is after Olivia declares Malvolio mad, and sends him to a priest, who is disguised as Feste. This quote is explaining how Malvolio believes the house is so dark, comparing their ignorance and rudeness to hell. What the staff has done to him is unforgivable and ruthless. "Dark" and "ignorance" go hand in hand with one another because when one is ignorant, they are unclear of people's true intentions. Or this can mean that ignorance is the darkest trait, and that the house is tainted with this unforgivable attribute. Group 6

    1. That most ingrateful boy there by your sideFrom the rude sea’s enraged and foamy mouthDid I redeem; a wrack past hope he was.

      The use of the word "ingrateful" is using a hyperbole to exaggerate the feeling of betrayal that Antonio feels. From the personification of the ocean, the words "rude" and "foamy" emphasize the dangers of rescuing Sebastian and that his rescuing still wasn't enough to win Sebastians loyalty (Even though he is speaking to Cesario by mistake).
