Samuel R. Gross
University of Michigan Law School
In Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Lady Olivia's renegade uncle, Sir Toby Belch, conspires with her maid, Maria, to set a trap for Malvolio, Olivia's officious, ambitious, and humorless steward. They plant an anonymous love letter that appears to be directed to Malvolio, in what seems to be Lady Olivia's handwriting. Malvolio finds it and falls for it.
